Everything's gone very quiet on the subject of the Super League recently. It's been months since the FA last said anything about it, and there's been deathly silence as to what the remaining premier league clubs would be doing once super league was formed. Now finally we have some clarity. Not an actual announcement on the FA website or anything dramatic like that, but the magazine formerly known as Fair Game has got hold of the set-up as agreed at a meeting on 13 June.
It seems that the 8 super league clubs will have to sit quietly until March when their competition starts. Their reserve teams will still be in the premier league reserve devisions, which could make for some rather unbalanced fixtures but was probably the only realistic solution available.
Meanwhile the 28 remaining premier league clubs will stay in 3 divisions. Long term they will all have 10 clubs, with 8 in the national division for one season, followed by 2 extra promotions at each level of the pyramid in 2011. There's a complex play-off system, which you can find in the 17 June news item at She Kicks.
With the usual title contenders off to join the super league, this could be a really interesting title race.
