Pre-league qualifications[edit]

Due to the high numbers of participants, the FIGC had to organize a qualification tournament, in order to reduce them to three rounds of 12 sides each.

Moreover, after U.S. Livorno and Pro Livorno's merger, a spot in the Prima Divisione was freed and rounds 3 to 5 had to be organized.
