Campionato Sammarinese di Calcio (English translation: Sammarinese League) is an amateur league competition for football clubs located at the top echelon of the Sammarinese football league system and has been operating since 1985. Currently, Campionato Sammarinese di Calcio is ranked at No.53/54 among European leagues according to UEFA's league coefficient, which is based on the performance of Sammarinese clubs in the Champions League and the Europa League.[1]

Rules[edit]

Until 1996, the league had two levels, Serie A1 and Serie A2, and a relegation/promotion system. However, the teams promoted from the second level could also participate in the championship play-off against Serie A1's first teams. Nowadays, all the clubs play at the same level, split into two divisions called Girone. The first three teams in each girone enter a play-off tournament to decide the championship winners, who qualify for the UEFA Champions League preliminary phase. The domestic cup winners qualify for the Europa League preliminary phase.[2]

The teams play home and away matches in their gironi and once against the teams from the other girone.

Grounds[edit]

Sanmarinese teams do not have home grounds of their own. Instead, the following venues are randomly chosen for every match:

Sometimes the Stadio Olimpico, based in Serravalle, is also used. Since there are not many grounds, matches are played on two days of each week, usually Saturday and Sunday. The play-off finals and the European fixtures are always played in the Stadio Olimpico.
