The 2014–15 Serie A (known as the Serie A TIM for sponsorship reasons) is the 113th season of top-tier Italian football, the 83rd in a round-robin tournament, and the 5th since its organization under a league committee separate from Serie B. It began on 30 August 2014.

A total of 20 teams compete in the league: 17 sides from the 2013–14 season and three promoted from the 2013–14 Serie B campaign. Juventus are the defending champions.

Events[edit]

The season will feature the return of Palermo after only one season in the second division and Empoli, whose last appearance was in the 2007–08 season. Cesena, the play-off winner, returned to the top level after two years in Serie B.

The pre-season saw two ownership changes: Cagliari was sold from Massimo Cellino to Milanese enterpreneur Tommaso Giulini, a former board member at Internazionale. Sampdoria was sold by Edoardo Garrone (son of the late Riccardo Garrone) to Rome-based film businessman Massimo Ferrero.

Rules for classification: 1st points; 2nd head-to-head points; 3rd head-to-head goal difference; 4th goal difference; 5th number of goals scored; 6th public draw.
(Head-to-head record is applied for clubs with the same amount of points only once all matches between said clubs have been played)[8]
2The FIGC rejected the application of Parma for a UEFA license, because Parma had overdue tax debt; their place goes to seventh-place Torino, which has a UEFA license.
(C) = Champion; (R) = Relegated; (P) = Promoted; (E) = Eliminated; (O) = Play-off winner; (A) = Advances to a further round.

Positions by round[edit]

The table lists the positions of teams after each week of matches. In order to preserve chronological evolvements, any postponed matches are not included to the round at which they were originally scheduled, but added to the full round they were played immediately afterwards. For example, if a match is scheduled for matchday 29 (Fiorentina vs Sampdoria), but then postponed and played between matchdays 30 and 31, it will be added to the standings for matchday 30.
