The FIGC has voted to abolish pulling clubs back up a division to replace those who go bankrupt, hoping to reduce the number of teams.
Today the Federation passed a new rule that will come into effect from the 2016-17 campaign.
Under the current system, Parma have gone bankrupt and are unable to register for the Serie B season, so they’ll be replaced by one of the sides that dropped down from Serie B into Lega Pro this summer.
With the new rules, Parma would not be replaced, as the plan is to reduce both Serie A and Serie B to 18 teams.
