The Director General of Shakhtar Donetsk Sergey Palkin in an interview with the Great football program expressed their views on changing the format of the championship of Ukraine
“Today we need an urgent reformation of the championship or restart it. You need to put the championship on a commercial basis, you need to get in touch with television companies, to take into account their ideas, because TV generates the main income that the League receives today. And together with the clubs and the broadcasters need to do a restart of the championship, to create a format that will bring the most money in the Premier League.
Today we must be guided not by how many teams should play in the top League: 16, 14 or 12, but right to exist must have a format that will bring the most money to the League. I heard that they wanted to make 16 clubs. Wait, we 14 can not really finish the season! But trying unsportsmanlike methods to create 16 teams tomorrow and drown the football, he will simply disappear” – said General Director of the miner.
Earlier, SPORTS bigmir)net reported that the President of Dynamo Kyiv Ihor Surkis has advocated the format of the Ukrainian League with 12 teams would play-off for places in the Champions League and Europa League.
