Lega Serie B Press Release – Lega Serie B assembled via videoconference. All the clubs were present. To begin, the start and end dates of the 2021/22 season were approved, with the championship set to begin on 21 August after an opening day on Friday 20 August, and it will end on 6 May. As is tradition, matches will be played on boxing day (26 December), and again on 29 December, with the winter break scheduled from 30 December to 14 January. The tournament will observe the break during the commitments of the international teams.

Goal-line technology, which will be integrated with the VAR technology for all situations relating to the goal line, was also approved by the assembly, according to President Balata. This will be extremely useful in the decision-making phase for fouls and offsides in the penalty area, thanks to a particularly precise high frame rate. The assembly unanimously approved the proposal, identifying it as an objective in the project that further enhances the quality of Serie BKT.
