Football Fever Podcast: Asean Super League is unlikely to catch on

The Football Fever Podcast team discusses the proposed Asean Super League and draws comparison with cricket’s Indian Premier League while saying that it won't be as popular
The planned Southeast Asian football league is unlikely to catch on and could do long-term damage to football in the region, according to The Football Fever Podcast team. An eight-team competition spanning across several ASEAN countries is planned to start in 2015, but will not enjoy the success or popularity of cricket’s Indian Premier League, which adopts a similar franchise system.
