<b>Lega calcio: 20 teams in Serie A next season</b>

Following this afternoon's Lega Calcio meeting, it has been announced that as of next season, Serie A will contain 20 teams, while 22 will play in Serie B.

The move comes after Serie B sides protested at the decision of the federation to enlarge Serie B to 24 teams. Fiorentina's promotion also angered many as they went up on stature alone.

This season there will be five promotions from Serie B and three relegations from Serie A, plus a playoff between Serie B's 6th highest side and Serie A's 4th from bottom.

On Thursday Serie B's matchday three will be played, while the first two rounds will be played on another date.

Now this is interesting, Serie A will be like EPL then, 4 more games to play. But I don't really see the point in this, since teams already have way too many games during the season. That's why they reduced the CL games.
