aw, i'm soo glad you asked.
they need only to create a new category or division as you might say. and they only need to apply it once (normally on world cup, being the biggest event)
the regional tournaments could be handled by the PSP itself, but being that this is maybe too much work for them, they could just let other parties handle the tournaments (the way they do with their already existing affiliate leagues)
the crowned champions from this "regional" leagues are endorsed and sponsored to play on world cup, for the National - Regional Division Cup or whatever you want to call it.
The "regional division" would have to be regulated in such a way that the already existing PRO teams are not allowed to participate in it (so as to let other new people the chance to make something), and the whole PRO division would then be classified truly as a Professional Club Division.
You want to go pro, you're going to have to belong in the club via past achievements (winning D1, winning National cup, etc etc) and applying for it, similar to how you do it now
that way you protect the Pro Division and the National division per see and let each one be.
The Pro division would still be la creme de la creme, but national championships would actually now mean something too.
the PSP won't lose busyness at all.
if anything they're giving the fighting chance to all the teams that can't normally afford to travel and play in events but can afford to play local and are damn good at it, to actually go to world cup and kick ***.
it won't discourage D1,D2,D3,D4... teams from going to the events they were already planning on attending, as they are just as free to enrole in those divisions as they are now.
But it might encourage local tournament attendance, as those D teams will be tempted to win locally so as to ensure free of charge participation to world cup and the chance to a little more meaningful tittle than D3 champs. They get the chance to become National Champions or whatever. that sounds a little better.
just my two cents.
