The Serie B (Italian pronunciation: [ˈsɛːrje ˈbi]) is the second division of women's football in Italy. Established in 1970, it has been run by the Italian Football Federation.[1] The teams which finish Serie B in the top 2 positions are promoted directly to the Serie A, while the bottom two are relegated directly to the Serie C. Since 2015 it has decreed by the Italian Football Federation all male Serie B teams must provide women's teams also.[2][3]
