Bari back in League football

Bari are a League team again after winning promotion to Serie C on Thursday.

The runaway leaders of Serie D Group I clinched the title with two games to spare, courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Troina.

Bari were expelled from Serie B last summer due to financial irregularities but were re-founded by Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis.

The club have been run by his son Luigi, although De Laurentiis’ involvement sparked controversy as he would have to sell one of the two clubs if Bari ever returned to Serie A under his watch.
