The newly appointed Italian Football Association President Tavichio is preparing a major reform of Serie A and Serie B, hoping to change the pattern of Italian football.

According to Italian media, Tavizio Austria mainly planned three major reform policies. First of all, the new plan stipulates that both Serie A and Serie B will be reduced. Serie A will be reduced from the original 20 teams to 18 teams, and Serie B will also cut 2 teams to 20 teams. Secondly, Tavichio hopes that Serie A will cultivate more local talents, and it is mandatory that 6 of the 11 starting players in the league must have 6 local Italian players. Third, Italy may want to introduce the concept of "labor certification" like England, and limit the number of non-EU players in various clubs.

The Italian national team has lost two consecutive World Cup group matches, and Italian football is in an embarrassing period.

In the five major European leagues, no league has made mandatory requirements for the number of local players. Let’s take a look at the rules for foreign players and local players in the five major European leagues:

Premier League: No foreign aid restrictions but requires labor certification for at least 8 local players

There are no restrictions on foreign aid (non-EU players) in the Premier League, but these foreign aids must have a labor license, and a maximum of 3 foreign aids can be played at the same time. The labor certification requires non-EU players to participate in at least 75% of the international A-level matches of the national team in the past year. In addition, the country's FIFA ranking must be in the top 64, but it does not rule out that they can be obtained through special application methods. In addition, the FA also expressly stipulated that in each team's registered league list of 25 people, 8 local British players (England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales) must be included.

Bundesliga: Foreign aid is restricted to 4 local players at least 12

The Bundesliga clearly stipulates that each club has 4 foreign aid quotas, but each game The game can only play a maximum of 3 people. In addition, it is also mandatory for each club to have at least 12 local players in the first team (the program was implemented in 2006, initially requiring at least 4 people, and an increase of 2 people per year to 12 people).

La Liga: Foreign aid is limited to 3 players

La Liga stipulates that each participating club only allows 3 foreign players.

Ligue 1 league: foreign aid is limited to 4 people

Ligue 1 league allows each participating club to have 4 foreign aids, and at the same time The maximum number of people playing is also limited to 3 people.

Serie A: Unrestricted foreign aid Local players "3+3"

The number of foreign aid for each team in Serie A is actually unlimited. Only in terms of signings, only one overseas non-EU player can be introduced in a summer (the foreign aids already in Serie A are not counted). If you want to introduce more, you must sell one foreign aid, and the number of foreign aids is also limited. For 3 people. In addition, the Italian Football Association has promulgated a "3+3" policy for local players, which requires each club to have at least 3 players from their own youth training and at least 3 players from other clubs in Italy.
