Date set for Serie B playout

The dates for the Serie B playout between Venezia and Salernitana have been set for early next month.

Palermo’s relegation to Serie C was revised to a 20-point deduction on Wednesday, keeping them in the second tier.

However, that had ramifications for Foggia, who were relegated to the third tier.

As a result, 14th-place Venezia will contest Salernitana, who finished one spot below them, in a playout to determine who joins Foggia, Padova and Carpi in Serie C next season.

The first leg will be played in Salerno on June 5, with the return fixture to take place in Venice four days later.
