Panini Pro League 2016

Pro League 2016 is the official sticker collection of the Belgian Premier League. In this edition the new big feature is that the player photos are taken "in action", like Panini does only for the Futbol Argentino collection (and partly for the Liga Este collection, where both the portrait and action photo fit on one sticker). This is a big change for the Belgian Foot collection and found not many approvals among the collectors. Another point of discussion is that half of the album is filled with Quiz sections, as there are two pages per team with questions and corresponding answering stickers. As there are no stadiums, team photos or any other special section this seems a waste of stickers.
The album includes the 16 teams of Pro League in alphabetical order. Each team has four pages. The first two pages include the squad with 20 stickers: the club badge (shining sticker), the star player in action (shining sticker), the coach, and 17 players in action. The other two pages are the Quiz, with a total of 8 stickers. There are no extra sections or update set for this collection.
