After the Federal Council, the rankings have been drawn up but for now no integration of staff: the summer of appeals and courts continues for some clubs that still don't know in which category they will play in next season
The Federal Council of July 24th was not the definitive goal but an intermediate stage of a summer that many clubs are spending between appeals and courts. There are clubs that don't know which league they will play in and they will still have to wait to find out their category but today they have been made known from Via Allegri in the meantime the final rankings of readmission and repechage applications in Serie B and Serie C. Only the lists therefore e no organic additions for the moment because we are awaiting the appeals. So we will position ourselves, in order not to alter the Serie B and C formats, at a later time when we know the outcome of the appeals, explained the FIGC president Gabriele Gravina on the sidelines of the Council.
Who can return to Serie B
The first club to be entitled to return to the cadetteria (only readmissions are possible for B) is the Bresciafollowed by the Perugia; therefore space first of all for the Lombard team that lost the playout against Cosenza in May, then for Santopadre's company that solved the knot linked to usability and then presented an application that also satisfied this requirement. Brescia - which last June had submitted the application to join both Lega Pro and Serie B despite having lost the playout - and Perugia are therefore waiting with the outcome of the appeals of Lecco and Reggina is of great interest.
On the Lecco case (who had been admitted before the turnaround due to the peremptoriness of the registration terms) also expressed the president of Lega B Mauro Balata, embittered by the situation since he was not a member of B. I think this stuff is a disgrace - he added - we will wait and fulfill the decisions of the judges. The nightmare for the company of the patron Di Nunno the great joy for the started the day after promotion won on the field (winning the playoff against Foggia) last year June 18th. After more than a month, we still don't know what will become of the club that had celebrated its comeback in B after 50 yearsif they will be able to play with it or if they will even have to start over from Third Categorygiven that they have not submitted an application to join the next Lega Pro. A message against football according to Gravina.
Readmissions and repechages in Serie C: between official and new
As for the C seriesfrom today can officially smile the Mantua because the Federal Council has readmitted the Lombard club. This mechanism was triggered when Pordenone did not submit its application for registration in mid-June, thus leaving a free place for the best relegated team in the 2022/2023 Lega Pro championship.
In C per, for the integration of staff, we will also proceed with i repechage having taken note of the reports of Covisoc and the Infrastructural Criteria Commission. For these, another ranking is drawn up which takes into consideration in order: the second teams of Serie A clubs, the nine teams winning the Serie D playoff final (in turn included in a further ranking drawn up on the basis of a score attributed to each of them) and finally the clubs relegated from Serie C. For next season, the ranking for any integration of the workforce will follow this order: Atalanta (second team), Casertana and Piacenza. And now? Ordinary justice continues and the next stages will be: August 2 when the Lazio TAR expresses its opinion and finally August 29 with the Council of State, even if the latter could be brought forward.
