There is no way the 4 clubs that don’t make the next phase could survive on 5 home games a year. Clubs have already made that known about next years reduction to 6. You’d end up with every decent player moving to the 2 clubs that make the finals every year and create a monopoly in each league involved. Pros playing 10 games isn’t enough for development, that includes if they play another handful of games in a semi-pro NRC comp on top of thatAs I've mentioned above it could work in two phases. The domestic phase and the international. Each looks to go to 3x6 teams domestic structure in the first plus finals. That's 12 weeks. Then in the second phase combine the three while including the three PI's and three other teams into a two 2x6 Cup competitions playing a single round robin for 5 games each with the top 2 from each going into the finals. All up 8 weeks.
