Regulation

Following the creation of the Italian national football team, the Italian Football Federation revamped its championship.

The round robin was introduced for the first time.

Registration was free and only subject to a quality committee. The eight clubs of the last years were joined by Ausonia, a Milanese car factory‘s club which paid the enrolment tax to try the experience of a national football championship.[1]
