Albania & Kosovo clubs in one league, why not?

With memories of the golden years (80's) of the albanian football still fresh on her mind, Albania is now attempting to recreate its strong football legacy. As young players start making their names abroad, the future is looking bright for Albanian football!

The Netherlands and Belgium are considering merging their top-flight football leagues to form a new cross-nation competition, i understands. Such a move would be a radical attempt to curb the growing domination of the “big five” European leagues and change the balance of power in continental club football.

Saw this too , don’t know if he’s bs
Ademi is saying only if Albania and Kosova get unification which won't happen.


Me personally I don't think it will happen because there's too much politics behind it. Serbia and UEFA will obviously never allow it to happen. I also think the two league won't like it because fighting for a European spot will be much tougher as it is and less chance for teams to get their little prize money after they get knocked out by some team from Luxembourg.

I personally think in the long run it would be good as it will create a more competitive team. Just taking the 3-4 best teams from Kosova who have the biggest financial backings and putting them in Albania will improve the play of the league. But I think we still need another 5 years of the Kosova league to develop because it's still so new and raw.

I think maybe a joint cup with the winner taking a European spot might be a good idea to get some some interest. I also think the cups for Albania and Kosova are a joke anyway.

I was all for this, but the problem is that players travel by bus. It's not like England, Italy or Germany where they fly around in private jets. With Albanian roads and mountainous terrain it'd take like 10 hours of driving to get from Vlore to eastern parts of Kosova.

Maybe they could do a North American West/East thing.

It wouldn't take 10 hours lol. Both countries have built up their highways.

And that's near the most southern part of Albania to the most northern part of Kosovo. Imagine Kukesi vs a team Prizren (that's like 20 minutes).

In which country in Europe do clubs travel by jet in their domestic league? Lol.

That’s just a lazy ass excuse.

I’m all for it. Quality will be better.

Only Turin/Milan clubs when they used to visit Sicily/Sardinia ,Napoli and viceversa , but thanks god most Serie A is where it belongs to “The North” . Germany, Spain , England and France have rounded shape geography so they have mostly 4-5 travel time by bus.
