More Scottish Football Reconstruction

My View has always been for either a 12 or a 16 team top flight. Lets keep the status quo right now.
1)Premiership- 12 teams (38 games) would be the status quo but with the addition of split gates for a larger chance of a rival to Celtic (or The Rangers in 10 years time). £18 a ticket is a more reasonable price.

2)Championship - 12 teams(44 games) would be a good idea as in England the Championship plays 46 games, this also means two more clubs will be a full time. Also a permanent TV Deal should be made as quite alot of people would like to see maybe 20-30 Championship games a season especially if it is a big game like Hibs vs Hearts, Dundee vs Hearts, or Partick vs St Mirren. Two teams Automatically go down and one more in a play-off. £15 a ticket.

3)National League - 18 teams (34 games) - Two Go up and three play-off places, and two go down with two play-off places. £12 a ticket.

4)Highland League - 18 Teams (34 games) - One Automatically goes up and three teams play in a play-off for the second spot. Two down.
Lowland League - 16 Teams (30 or 37 games) -One Automatically goes up and three teams play in a play-off for the second spot. Two down.

5)Caledonian Championship (North) -16 Teams (30 games) - Made up of Junior Clubs from North and East Regions. One Up Auto, 2nd-5th in play-off.
Lowland Championship - 18 Teams (34 games) - Made up from East and West Region clubs. One up Auto, 2nd-5th in play-off.

6)Caledonian Conference (North) -16 Teams (30 games) - Made up of Junior Clubs from North and East Regions. One Up Auto, 2nd-5th in play-off.
Lowland Conference - 18 Teams (34 games) - Made up from East and West Region clubs. One up Auto, 2nd-5th in play-off.

7) Regional Level- Highland and Islands, Lanarkshire + Central, Tayside (inc NE Fife), Forth, Ayrshire + South and Grampian

Another Aim would be for more Sunday Night TV Games, around 6.30pm on a Sunday to ensure higher attendances.
