It was founded on 7 July 2010,[2] following a split between Serie A and Serie B clubs, which led to the dissolution of the Lega Calcio and creation of two new leagues, the Lega Serie A and Lega Serie B respectively.[3] Since April 2011, Lega Serie B has joined the European Professional Football Leagues association.[4]
