The 2006–2007 season is the 105th season of competitive football in Italy.

Overview[edit]

The look of Italian football in the first divisions took major changes as a result of suspected match fixing. The scandal saw 29 time Serie A champions Juventus relegated from the top division to the second division Serie B.

Fiorentina and Lazio began the season in Serie A with deductions of 15 points and 3 points respectively. Milan were given an 8 point deduction, but played in the Champions League after defeating Red Star Belgrade in the third qualifying round.

Catania made their first appearance in Serie A since 1984 after being promoted from Serie B.

Val di Sangro play their first season of professional football in Italy, after being promoted from Serie D to Serie C2.

Events[edit]

National team[edit]

Italy will begin their qualifying campaign for Euro 2008. The 2006 FIFA World Cup champions are coached by Roberto Donadoni.
