The Lega Calcio has split between Serie A and B, effectively creating a sort of Premier League in Italy from 2010-11.

Since 1946 the Lega Calcio represented all the clubs in the top two tiers, but the inability to decide on how the money would be split has seen the big sides break away.

“We have created the new Lega Serie A,” announced Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini upon leaving the meeting in Rome.

“Am I satisfied? No, but it was necessary.”

Only Lecce did not take part in the request to split from Serie B sides, but the 19-club vote was the majority needed for this radical step.

Maurizio Beretta has been named the man who will be in charge of this new top flight union of clubs.

“I am honoured to put myself at the service of the clubs to adopt a more European and international approach in a sector where we have the potential for extraordinary results,” said Beretta.

“The mandate is clear, we will take the first steps to construct a Lega A and there are several details that need to be whittled down. The process will develop over the next 12 months.”

Beretta was the candidate to be the new Lega Calcio President, but the disagreements over numerous meetings prompted this new role.

It also means an interim President for the Lega Calcio in its existing form must be chosen because the clubs failed to elect a new leader.

“We are starting work now so that this Lega A can be operational from July 1 2010,” commented Milan Vice-President and former Lega Calcio President Adriano Galliani.

“Next year there should be no particular problems because we have already agreed on the division of money within Serie A and between A and B. From 2010 there will be separate Lega entities for A, B and C.”

Nah, but instead of Lega Calcio the governing body of Serie A will be called Lega A. Serie A will still be called Serie A I assume, if the peeps in Lega A don't come up with any other ideas.

Maybe they'll try to sell something along with Serie a like:
Barclay's Premier League
BBVA (la) Liga
Liga Sagres

Anyways it would be cool to get more info about this move. Even if in Italian(I don't really speak Italian). Channel four is way too superficial.
