Belgian 3rd Div relegation question

Recommended Posts

Hi, just started a new game on 16.1 and got a job in the Belgian 3rd division. In an 18 team league, the rules state the bottom 12 get relegated - ie from 7th downwards!!

Hoping someone with more intimate knowledge of the Belgium lower leagues can confirm this is true! A quick google didn't seem to suggest the league was this brutal

Thanks

OK a quick Wiki search brings up this Due to restructuring, the Third Division will play as a single league of 16 clubs from the 2016–17 season.

It appears there are 2 divisions? A and B? - So id assume they will amalgamate the top teams from the 2 divisions, plus those relegated from the 2nd division.

Thanks bestbrother - your googling expertise is clearly better than mine! I have a bad feeling I may lose my job at the end of the season then...

That's brutal!! Good luck m8..!

I'm guessing you get automatically fired if you drop down to a non playable league..!?

I think you do. Board would be happy with a mid-table finish so I could give them that and still lose my job!

From what I can work out, the top 2 get promoted, 3rd to 6th enter into a playoff and everyone else gets relegated. Think they should introduce something like that into the premier league...!
