The 2022–23 Serie C is the ninth season of the unified Serie C division, the third tier of the Italian football league system.

Changes[edit]

The league will be composed by 60 teams, geographically divided into three different groups. The group composition will be decided and formalized by the Serie C league committee between July and August.

The following teams have changed division since the 2021–22 season:

Vacancies[edit]

On 1 July 2022, the Co.Vi.So.C. rejected the league applications of Teramo and Campobasso.[11] Both exclusions were confirmed on appeal on 8 July 2022, with both teams announcing their intention to request one further appeal in front of the Italian National Olympic Committee sports magistrature,[12] which was rejected.

The appeal at TAR of Lazio was rejected on 3 August 2022, leading the football league to confirm the repechages of Fermana and Torres. However, later on 4 August 2022, the Council of State suspended the exclusion of Campobasso, with a final appeal sentence scheduled on 25 August;[13] as a direct consequence, the Lega Pro football league postponed indefinitely the announcement of the fixture list.[14] On 26 August 2022, the Council of State finally confirmed the exclusion of both Campobasso and Teramo.[15]

Name changes[edit]

On 26 August 2022, Juventus Under-23 (Juventus's reserve team) changed its name to Juventus Next Gen.[16]
