Serie A News And Tickets
Get all the latest news on Italy’s Serie A here as we cover both Serie A and the Italian team in the European competitions.
We also have tickets to all the important games in Serie A this season.
Serie A, also called Serie A TIM due to sponsorship by Telecom Italia, is a professional league competition for soccer clubs located at the top of the Italian football league system and has been operating for over eighty years since the 1929–30 season. It had been organized by Lega Calcio until 2010, but a new league, the Lega Serie A, was created for the 2010–11 season. Serie A is regarded as one of the best football leagues in the world and it is often depicted as the most tactical national league.
Serie A is the world’s second strongest national league according to IFFHS and has produced the highest number of European Cup finalists: Italian clubs have reached the final of the competition on a record twenty-six different occasions, winning the title twelve times.
Serie A is ranked 4th among European leagues according to UEFA’s league coefficient behind La Liga, Premier League and the Bundesliga, which is based on the performance of Italian clubs in the Champions League and the Europa League during the last five years. Serie A led the UEFA ranking from 1986 until 1999.
In its current format, the Italian Football Championship was revised from having regional and interregional rounds, to a single-tier league from the 1929–30 season onwards. The championship titles won prior to 1929 are officially recognised by FIGC with the same weighting as titles that were subsequently awarded. However, the 1945–46 season, when the league was played over two geographical groups due to the ravages of WWII, is not statistically considered, even if its title is fully official.
The league hosts three of the world’s most famous clubs as Juventus, Milan and Internazionale, all founding members of the G-14, a group which represented the largest and most prestigious European football clubs; Serie A was the only league to produce three founding members.
More players have won the coveted Ballon d’Or award while playing at a Serie A club than any other league in the world – ahead of Spain’s La Liga, although the actual number of Ballon d’Or won by players in these two leagues is equal at 18 each if including the FIFA Ballon d’Or. Milan is the second club with the most official international titles in the world (18).
Juventus, Italy’s most successful club of the 20th century and the most successful Italian team, is tied for fourth in Europe and eighth in the world in the same ranking.
The club is the only one in the world to have won all possible official continental competitions and the world title. Internazionale, following their achievements in the 2009–10 season, became the first Italian team to have achieved a treble.
Juventus, Milan and Inter, along with Roma, Fiorentina, Lazio and Napoli are known as the Seven Sisters of Italian football and are considered important European teams.
