A Club Players Association survey has revealed that only 12% of its members are in favour of the football championship's new Super 8 format, which will come into play from next season.
Almost 5,000 club players responded to a questionnaire sent around by the CPA, with 60% declaring themselves not in favour of the Super 8 system, and a further 28% admitting they weren't sure.
The 5,000 or so club players were also asked to select three improvements they would like to see introduced to their season. Almost 3,600 (72%) asked for 'an unchangeable and predictable fixtures schedule'.
46% said they wanted 'regular fixtures during the summer', while 41% asked for a defined holiday period.
Elsewhere in the survey, two thirds of club players said they've attended a committee meeting at their club in the past, while over 80% said they've attended their club AGM.
The CPA also confirmed they will be surveying their members on an ongoing basis on all matters of interest.
