Fabrizio Castori’s side have gained promotion to Serie A for the first time in 23 years after a 3-0 win over Pescara on Monday.

The owner Claudio Lotito, is also the Chairman of Serie A side Lazio. Therefore, he must sell one of the two clubs as it is forbidden to own more than a club in Italy’s top flight.

Lotito is expected to sell Salernitana, but he has 30 days to do so. The rule specifies it is prohibited to sell the club to relatives up to the fourth degree.

FIGC President Gabriele Gravina has confirmed Lotito has no alternatives but to sell the club.

“It’s a rule in line with those of FIFA who does not permit the ownership of more than a club a professional level,” Gravina said before Salernitana’s game today.

“President Lotito has enjoyed a derogation for many years and everybody knew what would happen.

“The rules are clear, his ownership can’t continue and if it does, it would prevent Salernitana from taking part in Serie A next season.”
