Changes from 2019–20Edit

A total 166 clubs were admitted to the season, including the new incarnation of former Serie A club Siena.

TeamsEdit

The composition of the league will involve nine divisions, grouped geographically and named alphabetically.

Teams relegated from Serie CEdit

A total of eight teams from the 2019–20 Serie C were admitted: Siena (phoenix club, admitted after the previous club's incarnaton did not apply for membership), Picerno (relegated by office due to match-fixing) and the relegated teams Pianese, Gozzano, Arzignano, Rimini, Rende and Rieti.

Teams promoted from EccellenzaEdit

Due to the COVID-19 related suspension of all amateur sports leagues in Italy, promotions were picked explicitly by the Italian Football Federation based on the leagues' provisional standings at the premature conclusion of the season. No promotion playoffs were held, nor was the final phase of the Coppa Italia Dilettanti (whose winning team is normally automatically admitted into Serie D).

  • ^ merged with Città di Varese
  • ^ merged with Grumellese under the new denomination of Real Calepina
  • ^ merged with Tre Pini Matese under the new denomination FC Matese

EventsEdit

Due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy, the Lega Nazionale Dilettanti, who is responsible for the organization of the league, decided on 5 November 2020 to suspend the regular Serie D programme until 29 November, instead using this prolonged break to reschedule all games that could not be played due to COVID-19 related health concerns.[1]
