[2010-11] Lega Pro fixtures released

The Lega Pro have today drawn up and presented the fixtures for the 2010-11 season at a ceremony held in Florence.

During the summer, the Lega Pro had to deal with the aftermath of 20 clubs being thrown out from its Prima Divisione and Seconda Divisione for financial problems.

Last week the governing body for the third and fourth tiers of Italian football confirmed the replacement clubs, albeit short in numbers, and released the geographic groups for the five groups, and today the 85-member clubs finally found out their calendars for the new season.

Lega Pro 1's Girone A and Girone B will both consist the normal 18 clubs each, but Lega Pro 2's Girone A will only have 17 clubs and Girone B and Girone C will have 16 each, meaning the relegation format in the fourth tier has had to be changed.

The brand new season kicks off on August 22, which is on the same weekend as Serie B. However, the season dates - including for breaks during the season, the final day of the regular phase of the campaign, the end-of-season promotion play-offs and relegation play-outs - vary from division to division.
