Serie A teams vote to keep 20-club league

The Italian clubs voted to keep the current format of the league.

Serie A will remain with 20 clubs after 16 of its current sides voted versus reducing the division to 18 teams.

Only Juventus, Inter, Milan, and Roma voted in favor of 18 clubs in the league, but their votes will be insufficient, and the current format of 20 clubs brought in 2004-05 will remain in the future.

A change proposal was also approved as the Italian league demands more autonomy, similar to the Premier League.

Those changes will be made public at the extraordinary general assembly of the Italian Football Federation next month.

“At the moment, the system does not give Serie A the autonomy and decision-making weight it must have concerning making economic decisions,” Serie A President Lorenzo Casini shared with the media after the shareholders’ meeting.
