Leting some teams in and some not is obviusly a problem. You could just leave four spots open in the top of Allsvenskan one season and give them immediate promotion without playing Kvalserien.
The league average attendance is 6385. Let's say the average ticket is 200SEK. That would make teams about 1,3 million on average each home game. Take that times four and you get about five million. Add the increase in sponsor money and you allready have a substantial ammount of extra money.
The TV deal would have to be renegotiated aswell, preferrably with another broadcasting company.
I've never wanted the SEL on pay channels. I've always wanted SVT to own the rights to the league. I invision something like a CBC, Hockey night in Canada kind of deal with a number of games being showed on national TV every week wich would boost the popularity of the league through the roof even though you'd have to pay for the a couple of the extra channels wich would have to be added. Now i understand the obvious kinks in this kind of plan. But with more games, regardless of who buys the rights, they'd have to pay more! SVT has a budget of over 1,4 billion SEK. They can easily afford it, and probably more than what TV4 pays right now.
I pay taxes, i should get some fun out of it too!
I know it's lofty. But something needs to happen. If this could add another 15 millions to the teams it would mean all the difference in the world. And i don't think it'd water the lague out, just as dosing says, look at Allsvenskan. The league's been in the same state for two decades now and geting worse.
