Serie A

Serie A is the primary soccer league in Italy.  It is sponsored by Telecom Italia and therefore more correctly called Serie A TIM. The second league was formerly known as Series B but is now due to a sponsorship deal known as Bwin league.

There has technically been two different Serie A in Italy. The first was formed for the 1929-30 season and was played until 2010. That Serie A was organized by Lega Calcio. Before the 2010-11 season a new league was formed, the Lega Serie A. The two leagues are however despite this often referred to as being the same and most people still think that the league was formed in 1929-30 and not in 2010-11. Serie A is home to some of the internationally most successful soccer clubs and Serie A has produced the highest number of European Cup finalists. It is commonly ranked as the 4th strongest league in the world although the 2011 IFFHS ranking placed them at 5th place.

There are currently 20 teams playing in Serie A. Serie A is know for good soccer and exciting games. It is however also known for cheating and has been tarnished by several corruption scandals in which teams have been removed from the division or lost their titles. The most famous scandal is the Calciopoli (soccerville) scandal in 2006 where investigators where able to find enough evidence of cheating and in which Juventus lost two champion titles and was moved down to serie B. Other involved teams include Milan, Florentina, Lazio and Reggina

Serie A is home to 3 of the worls most famous teams Juventus, Milan and Internazionale. (inter). Milan is one of two clubs with the most official international titles in the world.
