Calcio is the most popular sport in Italy

Football (Italian: calcio) is the most popular sport in Italy. The Italian national football team is considered one of the best national teams in the world. They have won the FIFA World Cup four times (1934, 1938, 1982, 2006), only Brazil (at 5) finished second (1970, 1994) and finished third (1990) and fourth (1978). They also won a European Championship (1968), which also appeared in two finals (2000, 2012), finished third in the Confederations Cup (2013), won an Olympic football tournament (1936) and two Central European international cups (1927-30) and 1933-35).

Italy's highest domestic league, Serie A football, is one of the most popular professional sports leagues in the world and is often referred to as the most tactical national football league. Italy's club teams have won 48 major European trophies, making them the second most successful nation in European football. Italy Serie A features three of the most famous clubs in the world: Juventus, Milan and Inter. All are founding members of the G-14, a group representing the largest and most prestigious European football clubs. Series A was the only league that spawned three founding members. Juventus, Milan and Inter are together with Roma, Fiorentina, Lazio and historically Parma, but now Napoli, known as the Seven Sisters of Italian Football. Italian managers are the most successful in European football, especially in competitions such as the Uefa Champions league football. More players have won the coveted Ballon d'Or Prize than any other league in the world.

In November 1907, FIF organized two championships in the same season:

Italian Championship, the main tournament that only Italian players were allowed to attend; The winners will be named Campioni d'Italia (Italian Champion) and awarded Coppa Buni

Federal Championship, a secondary tournament in which foreign players (if they lived in Italy) were allowed to play; The winners were proclaimed as Campioni Federali (Bundeschampion) and awarded the Coppa Spensley

The FIF wanted to organize two different championships to secure weaker clubs consisting of only Italian players ("squadre pure italiane", "pure Italian teams"), the national title and at the same time the big clubs, which are largely made up of stronger foreign players to play players ("squadre spurie internazionali", "wrong international teams") in a small competition for a "consolation prize". The majority of the major clubs (Genoa, Turin and Milan) withdrew from both championships to protest against FIF's self-reliant policies. The championship was won by Juventus against Doria, while the Italian championship in 1908 and Coppa Buni were won by Pro Vercelli, who defeated Juventus, Doria and US Milanese. However, the championship won by Juventus was later forgotten by FIGC due to the boycott of the dissident clubs.

In the 1909 season, the two different championships were re-organized, with Coppa Oberti instead of Coppa Spensley for the Federal Championship. This time, the majority of major clubs decide to withdraw only from the Italian championship to make the national competition the most relevant tournament and to reduce the Italian competition. The national championship won Pro Vercelli against Americans in the final, while the Italian championship was won by Juventus against Americans in the final. The strategy of the dissidents has proven itself: The failure of the Italian championship won by Juventus forced FIGC to recognize the national champion of Pro Vercelli later as "Campioni d'Italia 1909" and to reject the other tournament.

The format was changed for the 1909-10 season, which was played in a league format. There were nine clubs that played at home and away against each other. The separation between the national and Italian championships has not been completely abolished, as the unification of these tournaments was the last time that it was decided to award two titles at the end of the season. In fact, FIGC stated that the Bundesmeister (who now became the main title) would be the top-ranked club in the standings, while the Italian champion (who now became the runner-up) would be the top-ranked club among the four "pure Italian teams" from the head-to-head games. At the end of the season, Pro Vercelli and Inter were in first place, so a play-off was required to win the national title (the Italian title was won by Pro Vercelli). This season was the first victory for Internazionale, who defeated Pro Vercelli in the final with a score of 10-3. Even the Italian title win by Pro Vercelli was later forgotten.
