Lega Pro President Gabriele Gravina has been formally put forward as a FIGC Presidential candidate alongside Damiano Tommasi.
So far, there are two official candidates, although Lega Nazionale Dilettanti chief Cosimo Sibilia is another likely name on the table.
The Federation is without a President, as Carlo Tavecchio resigned following Italy’s failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
This morning, the Lega Pro – Italy’s third division – voted unanimously to present Gravina as a candidate for the FIGC job.
“For the next 48 hours, I will work to complete my platform and present the terms of my candidacy,” Gravina told TMW Radio.
“The unanimous vote makes me proud, because it proves over the last two years we have done teamwork and proved we can win together.
“I think it’s all ultimately tied to the position of the Lega Serie A. I am not particularly optimistic, but we must work for the general interest of football in Italy and not just a few areas.”
