UEFA has reportedly given the go-ahead to a Balkan Super League that will bring together the former Yugoslavia in one league.

A Balkan super league? It looks like it is on the way and it. Sounds. Awesome.

Exactly which countries would be involved with this is still unknown, but odds are it includes the former Yugoslavia countries Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Macedonia.

At the very least, the clubs in those countries have the chance to become relevant. Right now, the highest ranked team in the UEFA Coefficient from the aforementioned countries is Dinamo Zagreb, who are way down at number 73.

A super league could allow the countries to do so much more, though. It should strengthen them all financially, allowing them to make a play for foreign players, but more importantly, keep the players they develop for longer. Luka Modric, Darijo Srna, Nemanja Matic, Eden Dzeko, Dejan Lovren, Branislav Ivanovic, Josip Ilicic, Mralem Sulejmani, Ivan Olic, Mario Mandzukic, Nikica Jelavic, Aleksander Kolarov and Tim Matavz all started their careers with Balkan clubs.

Imagine bringing all those players together in one league. It would be amazing, even if the clubs are only keeping the players for another year or two so they're not all in the league at the same time, the play would be magnificent.

And then there are the fans. The fans from the region are incredible, and sometimes scary. Put them together, and pray that nothing goes wrong, and the support in that league will be second to none. You will have flares, bouncing stands, deafening singing and everything wonderful.

If it all comes together, and everything goes well, this could be amazing. Fingers crossed.
