The Ital­ian Football Fed­er­a­tion (FIGC) has fi­nally elected a new pres­i­dent, al­most a year af­ter its va­cancy. Gabriele Grav­ina, who was the for­mer pres­i­dent of Serie C, ran un­op­posed and re­ceived 97.2 per cent of the votes at the elec­tion as­sem­bly. He has taken over from Carlo Tavec­chio who stepped down fol­low­ing Italy’s fail­ure to qual­ify for the World Cup in Rus­sia last sum­mer. The 65-year-old pre­vi­ously stood as one of three can­di­dates in an un­suc­cess­ful elec­tion in Jan­uary where none of the con­tenders re­ceived the nec­es­sary votes to win.
