Geographical restrictions on Divisions & Districts
« on: September 16, 2016, 04:41:41 AM »
Phew, what an impressive document! I've only had a chance to read through the first few articles and I have a question regarding 11.3:

What's the motivation behind restricting a Division to a country and a District to at least one country but no more than a continent?

I can think of a few examples where this might lead to administrative difficulties:
  • For small countries like Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Monaco it may not be worthwhile to maintain a Division for only one club or very few clubs
  • Many countries belong to more than one continent (e.g. Russia, Turkey, France), therefore the current wording of 11.3 causes a conflict.
  • Very large countries or countries with very many clubs may benefit from splitting into more than one District.
