Serie A is a professional league competition for football clubs in Italy. League format is round robin where each team will meet twice within one season. It is regarded as one of the best football leagues in the world, one of top four leagues in Europe. In this current year, Serie A is eligible to send four teams to Champions League competition.
The league hosts three of the world’s most famous clubs as Juventus, Milan and Internazionale. Famous players are mostly coming from those clubs. These teams along with Lazio, Fiorentina, Roma and Napoli, are known as the Seven Sisters of Italian football. The Serie A Championship title is often referred to as the scudetto (“small shield”) because since the 1923–24 season, the winning team will bear a small coat of arms with the Italian tricolor on their strip in the following season.
