On the board of directors and the general meeting of the Pro League will be the panel of experts of the minister of State Melchior Wathelet Monday, his first recommendations is disclosed. A number of measures will be immediately put to the vote. Further, the we are against such of Johan Timmermans and Paul Allaerts in question and the VAR soon assisted by an offside line.
The panel of experts of Pro League CEO Pierre François, minister of State Melchior Wathelet and sportadvocaat Wouter Lambrecht did the past two months, a round with all stakeholders. Even the brokers were Tuesday heard. On the basis of the information that the panel of experts of the Pro League collected, they will have a number of recommendations to the professional clubs. That will be Monday presented to the board of directors and the general meeting of the Pro League.
In principle, the recommendations of the panel of experts an internal code of conduct arise, which prescribes how clubs can best deal with brokers and intermediaries. Perhaps Monday will be voted on a few short-term measures that can be realized and on which broad consensus exists. No doubt there will also be recommendations are that bright there will be a discussion and that, therefore, only in the long term have to be developed. Nevertheless, it is especially the political press large to be Monday already tuned regulations to come out.
The idea is that if these measures were subsequently included in the license terms, which clubs their proflicentie can lose if they the code of conduct with the underfoot. To the legislative drietrapsraket to complete, hopes the Pro League that license eventually (partly) to convert into a legal and clear legislation.
In addition, there is also some commotion around the seats of Johan Timmermans and Paul Allaerts in the Executive Committee of the Royal Belgian Football association (belgian football association). The voetbalbestuurders, respectively, of KV Mechelen and Mouscron are mandated by the Pro League, but the belgian football association doesn’t believe that for clubs that the main characters form in voetbalschandalen place is in the highest bondsorgaan. Timmermans explained his function is also temporarily down, but KV Mechelen nor Mouscron wants the postje losses. The Pro League is asked about it, to speak and placed the theme on the agenda of the board of directors and the general meeting.

Monday, we know in principle when the leagues next season kicked off, and when the play-offs take place. Finally, also in the broad sense talked about the Video, Assistant Referee (VAR) and its performance over the last few weeks. The management of the Pro League also found a supplier for a virtual offside line, making offside for the videoref exactly measurable.
