New Coppa Italia format ratified

A new format for the Coppa Italia has been made official, but after controversy over previous plans, four Serie C sides are included.

The Lega Serie A had announced it would reduce the tournament to only 20 Serie A and 20 Serie B clubs.

This caused outrage, especially in the wake of the Super League fiasco, and prompted a change of heart.

The new format for the Coppa Italia was ratified today, involving 20 Serie A clubs, 20 from Serie B and four from Lega Pro/Serie C.

There will be 36 sides entering directly, plus four who can qualify via preliminary rounds involving eight teams.

Once again, every round of the Coppa will be a single knockout fixture, except for the semi-finals, which are home and away.
