JuventusJuventus - Juventus became the first Italian club to have a B team in the Italian League. The Bianconeri will send their young team to appear in Serie C. The Juventus B team is named Juventus U23. Juventus U23 will have a chance to go up to Serie B, but they cannot get a promotion to Serie A.

Juventus U23 will be coached by former Fiorentina midfielder, Mauro Zironelli. The team has already begun the preparations for the start of Serie C on August 25th, 2018.

The entry of Juventus U23 to Serie C cannot be separated from the rejection of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) against the request of two Serie D clubs, Prato and Como. The two clubs are considered not eligible. "Prato and Como were not accepted in the Serie C season 2018-2019" FIGC wrote in a statement quoted by Football Italia.

"FIGC's extraordinary commissioner, Roberto Fabbricini, has examined the application submitted by the two clubs. After being examined, the clubs did not fulfill all the conditions required. He also refused both requests. Instead, Cavese, Imolese and Juventus B team has been accepted. "
