Italian FA President: “I hope we’ll have an 18-team Serie A by the 2023/2024 season.”

The president of the Italian football federation (FIGC), Gabriele Gravina, announced at a press conference today that his aim is to lower the number of clubs in Serie A from 20 to 18 within the next few years.

Eyeing to reform Italian football, Gravina announced the proposal following a meeting of the FIGC’s federal council this afternoon.

“I’ve been working on this project and soon it will be submitted to all of the necessary bodies,” Gravina revealed to the media.

“If this were to happen, we would have an eighteen team Serie A beginning in the 2023/2024 season. We wouldn’t be the first federation to do this, though, we would still be a part of the early adopters of this reform.”

“I’m interested in reforming Italian football. The first talks to enact this change could take place as early as Friday,” he concluded.
