Season2022–23
2023–24

The 2022–23 Serie D is the seventy-third season of the top level Italian non-professional football championship. It represents the fourth tier in the Italian football league system.

Rules[edit]

The season will provide a total nine promotions to Serie C (those being the winners of all nine groups). Teams placed between second and fifth for each group will play a so-called "playoff tournament", starting with two one-legged games played at the best placed team's home venue:

  • 2th-placed team vs 5th-placed team;
  • 3th-placed team vs 4th-placed team.

In case of a draw by the end of the game, two extra times will be played; in case of no winner after that, the best-placed team will advance to the final.

The two winning teams will then play a one-legged final, to be hosted at the best placed team's home venue, with the same rules as in the first round. The nine playoff winners for each group will be prioritised to fill any potential Serie C league vacancies.[1]

The two bottom-placed teams for each league group are automatically relegated to Eccellenza. Two two-legged relegation playoff games (known in Italian as "play-out") will therefore be played between:

  • 13th-placed team vs 16th-placed team (for 18-team groups), or 15th-placed team vs 18th-placed team (for 20-team groups);
  • 14th-placed team vs 15th-placed team (for 18-team groups), or 16th-placed team vs 17th-placed team (for 20-team groups).

In case of an aggregate draw after the second leg, two extra times will be played; in case of further aggregate draw, the worst-placed team will be relegated.

In case the two teams will have a league gap of at least eight points, the relegation playoff will not take place and the worst-placed team will be automatically relegated instead.[2]

Teams[edit]

The composition of the league involves nine divisions, grouped geographically and named alphabetically.

Teams relegated from Serie C[edit]

The following teams were relegated from the 2021–22 Serie C:

Catania were instead excluded during the season; as per Article 52 of N.O.I.F., a phoenix club from Catania was therefore allowed to submit application to participate in the Serie D league.[3][4]

Teams promoted from Eccellenza[edit]

The following teams were promoted from Eccellenza:[5][6]

PO Promoted as national playoff winners. CI Promoted as Coppa Italia Dilettanti runners-up, due to tournament winners Barletta having been promoted directly to Serie D. 1 Livorno were readmitted to Serie D after Figline's promotion was revoked due to unsportsmanlike conduct in a promotion playoff game.[7]

Relocations, mergers and renamings[edit]

  • Cascina relocated to Ponsacco and was renamed Mobilieri Ponsacco.[8]
  • Atletico Terme Fiuggi relocated to Riano and was renamed Roma City.[9]
  • Muravera relocated to Tertenia and was renamed Sarrabus Ogliastra.[10]
  • Stresa merged with Lesa Vergante and was renamed Stresa Vergante.[11]
  • Sona changed its name to Chievo-Sona.[12] The renaming was reverted later in September 2022.[13]
  • Athletic Carpi changed its name to Carpi.[14]
  • FYA Riccione changed its name to United Riccione.[15]

Exclusions[edit]

In July 2022, the Serie D football committee announced Rieti and Delta Porto Tolle had not submitted its league application, whereas Lornano Badesse had renounced their right to take part to the season.[16][17]

Later in August 2022, Giarre were also excluded due to unpaid salaries.[17] Giarre's exclusion was successively suspended by the Administrative Court of Lazio, following an appeal by the club.[18] On 8 September 2022, the Administrative Court of Lazio confirmed the Serie D committee decision about Giarre's exclusion.[19]
