A new system to determine the champion and the relegated team in the Italian League in the event of a tie on points

Today, Friday, the Italian Football Association approved amendments regarding the determination of the league champion in the event of a tie in points and the relegation supplement that was applied last season.

And he said in a statement that in the event that two teams are tied at the top of the standings, a one-match supplement will determine the identity of the Italian champion.

However, according to the new laws, instead of holding the match in a neutral stadium, it will be held on the land of the team that occupies the first place.

And in “Serie A”, in the event that two teams are tied on points, the two direct confrontations during the season are first resorted to, then the goal difference, then the goals scored.

And the match can be held in the host stadium for the Italian Cup final – and the Olympic stadium in Rome in recent years – if the Italian authorities deem it necessary for the sake of public safety.

As for relegation, and when the last two places (20 and 19) fall directly to the second division, the seventeenth and eighteenth places will play two decisive matches in the event of a tie on points.

And this system began to be applied with regard to a tie in the relegation battle last season, but the decisive confrontation was from one match, and Hellas Verona decided it at the expense of Spezia 3-1 and remained in the top flight, while the latter was relegated.
