Serie B playouts back on?

Serie B has been thrown back into chaos after a court blocked the League’s decision to cancel relegation playouts. 

Foggia had appealed to have their six-point deduction lifted following Palermo’s demotion for financial irregularities.

CONI appeals court chief Franco Frattini then ruled last week that the original verdict would stand, resulting in the Apulians’ relegation to Serie C.

However, it was confirmed on Thursday that the Regional Administrative Court (TAR) had frozen the Lega B Governing Council’s decision not to hold playouts.

TAR will reach a verdict over Foggia’s appeal on June 11, at which point Salernitana may be forced to contest a playout with the former.
