Carpi promoted to Serie A for the first time in their history

Carpi celebrate after gaining promotion to Serie A on Tuesday.

Small-town club Carpi have been promoted to Serie A for the first time in their history.

The recent comments from newly-elected FIGC chief Carlo Tavecchio have cast a shadow over Italian football.
Carlo Tavecchio is pushing ahead with plans to cut the number of clubs.

President of the Italian FA (FIGC) Carlo Tavecchio has renewed calls for the top two divisions of Italian football to be reduced in size to help free up time for the national team.

Italy coach Antonio Conte saw his request for a meeting earlier this month rejected by the clubs, who did not want to deprive themselves of players during the season on dates which were not set aside for internationals by FIFA.
