2014–15 Serie B

The 2014–15 Serie B was the 83rd season since its establishment in 1929. A total of 22 teams contested the league: 16 of which returning from the 2013–14 season, 4 of which promoted from Prima Divisione, and three relegated from Serie A. The original concept was that due to Siena's exclusion because of financial issues and the fact such vacancy will not be filled in preparation of a future reduction to a league composed by 20 teams, this season featured 21 participant clubs instead of the usual 22. However, on 11 August 2014, Novara won an appeal and the league confirmed a 22nd team.[1] On 29 August, the league chose Vicenza Calcio as the 22nd participant.[2]

PlayoffsEdit

Promotion playoffsEdit

Six teams will play in the promotion playoffs. A preliminary one-legged round, played at the home venue of the higher placed team, involved the teams from 5th to 8th place. The two winning teams will then play against the 3rd and 4th-placed teams in two-legged semifinals. The higher placed team plays the second leg of the promotion playoff at home. If scores are tied after both games in the semifinals, the higher placed team progresses to the final. The same conditions apply to the final.

  Preliminary round     Semifinals     Two-legged final
