Serie A to introduce salary cap

Serie A is set to adopt a salary cap from the 2023/24 season, according to a report in La Repubblica. From the 2023/24 season, the signing of players would be blocked for those who have a team cost – that is, the sum of salaries, commissions for agents and market balance – greater than 80% of revenues.

The report suggests the move will also extend to Serie B and Lega pro and La Repubblica describe it as ‘the goal that football leaders want to set.’ There is even a  prospect of bringing it down to 70% in 2024, a strategy that aims to secure the accounts of a system that has been losing €1 million a day for the last 12 years.

The next meeting between the Football Association and the professional leagues is set for 28 July. On that day, the intention was to set the criteria for registration for the 2023/24 championships. In reality, only key principles of the proposal could pass.

Serie A has insistently asked for gradualness, both in the introduction of a ban for those failing to comply and also to gradual sanctions. That is: to not exclude from the competitions those who do not join, but a fine, penalty and only for those who do not comply within a set time, an exclusion.
