The Italian Serie A is the first division of football in Italy. The tournament was founded in 1898 under the name Campionato Federale. During their first 20 years, the teams were organized by groups according to the region to which they belonged. In 1929, with the professionalization of soccer in the country, he changed the nomenclature to the current one and completely remodeled its structure.
It is made up of 20 clubs that face each other over 38 days. The first four classified obtain a place for the Champions League. The fifth accesses the Europa League. The sixth plays the Europa Conference League. The three teams with the fewest points are relegated to Serie B. Until 2005, in the event of equality of points that had to be broken to decide the champion, qualification for European competitions or relegation, a two-legged play-off between the two involved. Since then, the first tiebreaker criteria have been head-to-head and overall goal difference.
In ancient times, each team in the league sold its broadcasting rights individually. Starting in the 2010-11 season, they were collectively sold to the various television networks.
