The year is 2023, the command of Brazilian football is in chaos, the president of the local federation was removed from office by the courts, as a result the national teams are being threatened with a ban from international competitions by FIFA, an ideal scenario for a revolution in football. organization of local football.
Thanks to this crisis, the state federations lost their strength behind the scenes of local football, with this the clubs decided to take the reins of organizing local championships, like the old state championships that occupied 16 long dates in the calendar and were played from January to April, were abolished for the year 2024 onwards, but due to some pressure from more regional clubs that did not want to completely lose their local matches, an agreement was reached that instead of the old state championships, the old regional cups would be restored, but with far fewer dates so as not to impact the national calendar and still maintain local rivalries.
However, the main change was that the old state championships ceased to exist and a fifth national division was created divided into 27 new state championships, only for clubs that are not in the first four national divisions in the country and with access and relegation between the Brasileirão - Série D is this new division called Séries Estaduais Brasileiros (Brazil - Série E), in this way all clubs in the country will have a national calendar of at least six months of guaranteed games and in general the calendar has become leaner for clubs with lower lineups. seniors who play international commitments.
Finally, another important change was a change in the Copa do Brasil, which has 7 phases, all played in a single match, with the exception of the Semi-finals phase, which continues in round-trip matches, and classification is no longer via state, now all clubs from Series A, B and C are classified and the rest are classified based on their performance in Series D.
This is how the new national pyramid looked:
Level 1 - Brailierão - Series A - 20 clubs
Level 2 - Brailierão - Series B - 20 clubs
Level 3 - Brailierão - Series C - 20 clubs
Level 4 - Brailierão - Series D - 64 clubs
Level 5 - Brailierão - Series E - 27 new state championships - more than 500 clubs in total.
