Hey guys, maybe you remember me for my last two 2020 soccer series for the MLS and the Bundesliga. And I thought I could do just one more little project before I'll take myself a little brake and before the hard times of my studies begin! ^^

zj7478.jpg

My idea was the 'BeNeLiga', a fusion between the Dutch Erendivisie and the Belgian Pro League as this is one of my favorite soccer regions and I'm kind of an expert in Belgian soccer. The league would have 20 clubs overall and it would be a similar system as in the NBA. There would be two divisions of 10 teams, the Belgian and the Dutch division. The best four teams of each division qualify for the Playoffs. The least Dutch and Belgian team would get relegated.

So, as always I will post three kits for each clubs and for some I'll update the logo a bit. I hope you'll like this! :)

So, here is the first team finished!

SC Heerenveen

Dutch Division

Location: Heerenveen
Population: 43.303
Founded: 1920
Dutch Titles: -

Heerenveen has one of the strongest and loveliest identities in sports in my opinion. Their kits are based on the flag of Friesland, the province Heerenveen is located. That brings their iconic blue and white stripes with a heart pattern on it!

I'm partial to a bit of Dutch football so I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with - hopefully PEC Zwolle will have made the cut!

Nice work on Heerenveen - as you say it's a unique and distinctive shirt and I think you've done it justice here.

Nice work. But remember, the Frisian people do not consider these red forms on their flag to be hearts. They are so-called plompebleden (leafs of floating water plants often encountered in Frisian waters). Looking forward to your other creations, Cercle is really very good.

Thanks. I never knew that story. I always referred them as hearts.

The first big one!

Something is buggingme though, the streaks on the stars in the league logo don't really line up with the circle. Other than that, love the concepts.

Don't know a whole lot about either leagues other than the top teams of each that get some coverage over on Canadian Basic Cable lol, but I'm interested for sure after seeing the Bundesliga!

PS this is probably a stupid question, but why not throw in 1 Luxemburg team just for :censored:es? Or maybe there isnt any pro team there. :)

Thanks! I actually thought about putting one club from Luxembourg into the league but well... The league there is too weak and the financial power wouldn't realistically allow them to be part of a BeNeLiga. Maybe with an investor that builds a new stadium and so on, but I don't believe that Luxembourg would be part of a fusion between both leagues.

The next one was interesting.

SV Zulte Waregem

Belgian Division

Location: Waregem

Population: 36,751

Founded: 2001 (Fusion; Zultse VV: 1950; KSV Waregem: 1925)

Belgian Titles: -

This club isn't very well known in Europa at all. Last season they finished second in Belgium and they played in the quali for the Champions League. This year they play again very well and are the number 4 in Belgium at the moment.

For Waregem I created a new logo.

ibg8s5.jpg

The jerseys of Zulte were dark red and green for the last years and I stayed with that look as it is unique and innovative ('Grensverleggend' means innovative).

Logo is pretty clean, I'm scared to see what the old one would look like. Love the hooped socks and the yellow kit reminds me of Cameroon... which isnt a bad thing since they often have some of the nicest kits out there! Great Job

And its too bad Luxembourg would be the next AS Monaco haha :P I can dream!

Grensverleggend literally means pushing the boundaries and that is what you did with this logo and the kits. Good stuff!

Sorry for being a bit late to the party, but I really like all of them, I don't really have that same feel for uniforms here as before, as I really don't watch any European Soccer besides the major leagues (Barclays, Ligue 1, Liga BBVA, Serie A, and Bundesliga) I'm really not that familiar with Dutch Enverdise and the Belgian league.

I really like Heveerenn though, nice work including the adorable little hearts from the provincial flag.

I really love the Third kit. They all look great, reminds me of Inter Milan with AC Milan's sponsor haha, but I do like what you have done with all 3, very nice.

Also, I just noticed something. I'm not a fan of having 2 League Patches and since this is an international league, did you ever thing to put the Flag on one of the sleeves? Just a thought.

Yeah I thought about that. But well, maybe I was just a bit lazy to do so. ^^

For the next one I created again a new logo.

AZ Alkmaar

Dutch Division

Location: Alkmaar
Population: 94,531
Founded: 1967
Dutch Titles: 1981, 2009

AZ was one of the most successful dutch clubs in the last few years. The new logo I created is leaned on the old logo of the club.

In the last years the Arsenal look has established for AZ, so I went with it.

I love the use of the windmil into Alkmaar, love the new crest and the use of a famous landmark. Lierse looks pretty fine as well, nice work again!

The AZ Alkmaar logo is perfection! and I love how both of these kits blend with the design of the logo. I have always loved when the logo and kit work together, making the design more exclusive to the team.
