Events


On 14 April 2016, it was announced that Serie A was selected by the International Football Association Board to test video assistant refereeing, which were initially private for the 2016–17 season, before allowing them to become a live pilot phase with replay assistance in the 2017–18 season at the latest. On the decision, FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio said, "We were among the first supporters of using technology on the pitch and we believe we have everything required to offer our contribution to this important experiment."[7]

On 29 April 2016, Crotone earned their first ever promotion to Serie A.[8] One week later, Cagliari was also promoted after just one year in Serie B.[9] On 9 June 2016, Pescara won the Serie B play-off to return to Serie A after a 3-year absence.[10]

On 13 April 2017, historical Milan president Silvio Berlusconi sold the ownership of the club to Chinese-born, Luxembourg-based Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux, with Li Yonghong as representing acting chairman.[11] The former Prime Minister left the club after 31 years and 29 trophies.
