With the season finale approaching, the 2023 Serie D takes shape and already has 63 of its 64 known participating clubs. The last remaining spot will be occupied after the Copa Maranhão dispute, a tournament started last Sunday that gives the champion the chance to choose whether to participate in the Fourth Division or the Copa do Brasil.

In September, CBF announced the Brazilian football calendar for next year, with 24 dates for Série D. The competition starts on April 30 and ends on October 29, already in its final stages. .
In addition to the Maranhão issue, the state of Mato Grosso also awaited a definition from one of its representatives: Nova Mutum. The club won the FMF Cup and, if it chose a spot in the Copa do Brasil, rival Operário de Várzea Grande, runner-up in the state tournament, would enter the Série D. That’s what happened.

Within the regionalized blocks – as the dispute format should remain for 2023 -, eight groups will be formed, each with eight teams each, defined by the logistics of displacement of the teams.
In the first phase, the tendency is to repeat the first and second rounds, totaling 14 rounds – with the four best placed advancing to the second phase and, subsequently, facing two more knockouts (octave and quarterfinals) to reach to access.
The Northeast region, for example, will have the largest number of representatives, with 23 in total. In Pernambuco, Santa Cruz, eliminated in the round of 16, and Retrô, in the second phase, will be the participants.
