Regulation

Football in Italy expanded its popularity during the 10’s. In summer 1912, minor clubs took control over the Italian Football Federation, and imposed a championship reform. New vicepresidents Mr.Valvassori and Mr.Faroppa created a new format with more clubs but more groups, regionalising the tournament.

The round robin was abolished. The old main tournament was split in two groups of six clubs, with solely ten matchdays, while the Oriental group became a full member of the championship.

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

An experimental Southern section was introduced.
