Interesting piece in the i this week

about the very competitive Allsvenskan where leadership in the top division changed six times last season and ended with ten teams separated by 12 points. Elitfotboll, which represents clubs in the top two divisions. “The Swedish league is the people’s league. This is their league and their football – no Saudi money, no VAR, less nonsense.”

50+1 ownership as with the Bundesliga so fan votes decreed no VAR.
