ROM: Salernitana is out of the series A thrown if it does not find a new owner by December 31, said the President of the Italian Football Association (FIGC), Gabriele Gravina, on Tuesday.
The team from Salerno rose last season for the first time in 23 years from Serie B, but their owner, Claudio Lotito, already owned another Serie A team, Lazio.
Having multiple teams in the same league is against league rules and control of the club has been turned over to a trust to find a new buyer. However, they still need to be successful 10 days before the agreed date.
« There will be no delays when it comes to the December 31st for the sale of Salernitana, » Gravina said after a meeting of the FIGC council.
Serie A filed a request with the FIGC last week to keep Salernitana in the division until the end of the season while they try to find a buyer after failing to receive suitable offers.
Salernitana is bottom of the league with eight points from 18 games and did not travel to their game against Udinese on Tuesday after the local health authority banned them from traveling due to positive COVID-19 cases in the squad.
