Salernitana The president of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), Gabriele Gravina said on December 31 they will be kicked out of Serie A if they do not find a new owner by December 31.
The Salerno side were promoted from Serie B for the first time in 23 years last season but their owner, Claudio Lotito, already owns another Serie A team, Lazio.
Ownership of multiple teams in the same league was a violation of league regulations and control of the club was given to a trust to find a new buyer. However, they were still unsuccessful with 10 days left to the agreed deadline.
Gravina said after the FIGC board meeting: “There won’t be any slack when it comes to the December 31 deadline for the sale of Salernitana.
“If there aren’t any new developments by December 31, Salernitana will be out.”
Serie A made a request to the FIGC last week to keep Salernitana in the league until the end of the season while it tries to find a buyer after failing to receive a suitable offer.
Salernitana is at the bottom of the standings with eight points from 18 games, and is not traveling in the match against Udinese on Tuesday after the local health authority banned them from travel due to positive COVID-19 cases on the team.
