This phrase has been in the news this week after a representative from the Danish side F.C. Copenhagen announced that there had been talks about the possibility of starting an Atlantic League. This would include teams from Scotland, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Sweden and Norway. This type of league was first mentioned back in 2000 but so far nothing has been put into practice. It seems that federations from these countries are worried about the fact that the Champions League would leave their domestic leagues behind so they think an Atlantic League would help them attract sponsorship and better players. It will be interesting to see how UEFA, the respective FAs and of course, the fans, react to this proposal
