Cancelled relegationsEdit

Juventus relegation created a big problem. The regulation was chaotic, with relegations decided at national level but promotions at regional level, without coordination. Unfortunately for the Turinese club, Piedmont was the sole region which correctly applied the format.

Minor clubs immediately took the opportunity for another expansion of the championship. FIGC managers Mr.Baraldi and Mr.Baruffini proposed to expand the groups to ten clubs each, with a separate final round for a total of twenty-eight matchdays. But Juventus problems were not resolved: minor Piedmontese clubs voted to fill their group with teams from lower "Promozione" championship. However, Milanese manager Mr.Mauro, a friend of Juventus manager Mr.Malvano, advised that an available spot had been created in the Lombard group. Juventus immediately accepted, so postponing their first relegation for other 93 years.

RegulationEdit

The Northern championship, which was the main tournament, was split in three groups of ten clubs, with eighteen matchdays, even if the Oriental group could not be filled.

Best two clubs of each group went to the final group. Last clubs should be relegated.

The experimental Southern groups had their own special regulations.

TeamsEdit

US Alessandria for Piedmont, Liguria for Ligury, Nazionale Lombardia for Lombardy, and Petrarca Padua had been promoted according to the national regulation. However, Lombard local committee also promoted Juve Italia and AC Milanese Lambro, while Venetian local committee also promoted Udinese.

Following Baraldi-Baruffini agreement, three relegated clubs were re-elected, while Vigor Turin and Savona Calcio were also promoted. Finally, Como and Brescia FC were also invited to join.
