Founded in 1898, Serie A is the top-tier league in Italian football. The winner of Serie A is awarded the Scudetto and the Coppa Campioni d'Italia. 

Since the 1929-30 season, the Serie A has been held in a round-robin format where each club plays the other side in a home and away fixture. Before this, regional and inter-regional rounds were held to determine the winner.

The top division Italian league is considered to be the most tactical and defence-oriented league among the top five leagues in Europe.

Since 2004-05, there have been 20 Italian clubs competing in Serie A every season.

The top-four placed teams in Serie A directly qualify for the UEFA Champions League while the fifth and Coppa Italia winners qualify for the UEFA Europa League.

Meanwhile, the bottom three teams at the end of the season are relegated to Serie B. They are replaced by the top three sides from Serie B.

From 1915 to 1919, the Serie A was postponed due to the First World War while the league was once again cancelled between 1944 and 1945 due to the Second World War.

AC Milan are the reigning champions of Serie A, having finished at the top of the 2021-22 standings. Milan secured 86 points from 38 matches, two points clear of second-placed Inter.

Who won the first Serie A?

Genos won the inaugural edition of Serie A in 1898. The Red and Blues defeated Internazionale Torino 3-1 following extra-time. The first edition of Serie A was a knock-out tournament featuring just three clubs from Turin. Apart from Genoa, Foot-Ball Club Torinese and Reale Società Ginnastica di Torino were the other two teams who participated in the tournament.

Who has won the most Serie A titles?

Juventus are the most successful team in Serie A, having won the title a record 36 times. The Old Lady also hold the record for winning the most consecutive titles in Serie A. Between 2011 and 2020, Juventus won nine Serie A titles on the trot.
