Italy serie A
Serie A (Italian pronunciation: [ˈsɛːrje ˈa]), also called Serie A TIM due to sponsorship by TIM, is a professional league competition for football clubs located at the top of the Italy football league system and the winner is awarded the Scudetto and the Coppa Campioni d'Italia. It has been operating as a round-robin tournament for over ninety years since the 1929–30 season. It had been organized by the Direttorio Divisioni Superiori until 1943 and the Lega Calcio until 2010, when 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 was the world's second-strongest national league in 2014 according to IFFHS. Italy Serie A is ranked third among European leagues according to UEFA's league coefficient, behind La Liga and the Premier League, and ahead of the Bundesliga and Ligue 1, which is based on the performance of Italian clubs in Uefa Champions league football and Uefa league football during the last five years. Serie A led the UEFA ranking from 1986 to 1988 and from 1990 to 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. Similarly, the 1945–46 season, when the round-robin was suspended and 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. All the winning teams are recognised with the title of Campione d'Italia ("Champion of Italy"), which is ratified by the Lega Serie A before the start of the next edition of the championship.
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 from 2000 to 2008, with the first two also being founding members of its successive organisation, European Club Association (ECA). More players have won the coveted Ballon d'Or award while playing at a Serie A club than any league in the world other than Spain's La Liga, although Spain's La Liga has the highest total number of Ballon d'Or winners. 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 with the most official international titles. The club is also the only one in the world to have won all possible official confederation competitions. Milan is joint third club for official international titles won in the world, with 18. Internazionale, following their achievements in the 2009–10 season, became the first Italian team to have achieved a treble. Inter are also the only team in Italian football history to have never been relegated. Juventus, Milan and Inter, along with Roma, Fiorentina, Lazio and Napoli, are known as the Seven Sisters of Italian football.
Serie A is one of the most storied football leagues in the world. Of the 100 greatest footballers in history chosen by FourFourTwo magazine in 2017, 42 players have played in Serie A, more than any other league in the world. Juventus is the team that has produced the most World Cup champions (25), with Inter (19), Roma (15) and Milan (10), being respectively third, fourth and ninth in that ranking.
Serie A, as it is structured today, began in the 1929-30 season. From 1898 to 1922 the competition was organized in regional groups. Due to the steadily increasing number of teams participating in regional championships, the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) split the IHK (Italian Football Confederation) in 1921. When the IHC teams rejoined the FIGC, they formed two supra-regional divisions that renamed categories into divisions and the FIGC sections divided into two North-South sections leagues. In 1926, due to internal crises and fascist pressures, the FIGC changed the internal framework and added southern teams to the national division, eventually leading to the final settlement between 1929 and 1930. In 1927, no title was awarded after Turin was robbed of the FIGC of the championship. Turin was declared a champion in the 1948/49 season after a plane crash at the end of the season in which the entire team was killed.
The title of the Serie A championship is often referred to as a scudetto ("small shield"), since the winning team since the 1923/24 season in the following season a small coat of arms with the Italian tricolor on the jersey. The most successful club is Juventus with 35 championships, followed by Milan and Internazionale with 18 championships each. From the 2004/05 season the club was awarded on the field after the last round of the championship an actual cup. The trophy, called Coppa Campioni d'Italia, has been officially used since the 1960/61 season, but was transferred between 1961 and 2004 to the winning clubs at the headquarters of the Lega Nazionale Professionisti.
In April 2009, the Serie A announced a separation from Serie B football. Nineteen of the twenty clubs voted for the step in a dispute over television rights; The desperate Lecce had voted against the decision. Maurizio Beretta, former head of the Italian employers' association, became president of the new league.
In April 2016, it was announced that the board of the International Football Association selected Series A to test video reruns that were originally private for the 2016-17 season, so that they could become a live pilot phase. The repeat support was implemented in 2017 -18 season. Commenting on this decision, FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio said: "We were among the first advocates of using technology on the pitch and we believe we have everything we need to contribute to this important experiment.
In the season from August to May each club plays twice against the other teams. Once at home and once abroad, a total of 38 games per team until the end of the season. So a real round-robin format is used in Italian football. In the first half of the season, the so-called andata, each team plays a total of 19 games long against each league opponents. In the second half of the season, the so-called Ritorno, the teams play in exactly the same order as in the first half of the season. The only difference is that the situation is changed at home and abroad. Since the 1994/95 season, the teams have received three points for a win, one point for a draw and no points for defeat.
The top four Serie A teams qualify directly for the group stage of the UEFA Champions League (from the 2017/18 season). Teams finishing in fifth and sixth place qualify for the UEFA Europa League tournament. A third UEFA Europa League is reserved for the winner of Coppa Italia. If the Coppa Italia champion has already qualified in the first seven Serie A teams for European football, the seventh-placed Serie A team will receive the UEFA Europa League place. The three worst placed teams descend into Serie B.
In the 2005/06 season, when two or more teams are tied in points (for any location), the decisive triggers are:
Head-to-head records (results and points)
Goal difference from head to head games
Goal difference overall
Higher number of goals scored
Until the season 2004/05 would be determined in a playoff the champions, the European points or the descent, if the two teams would be tied. Each play-off was held after the end of the regular season. The last playoff championships took place in the 1963/64 season, when Bologna and Inter both ended with 54 points. Bologna won the play-off 2-0.
