The 2019–20 Serie A (known as the Serie A TIM for sponsorship reasons) is the 118th season of top-tier Italian football, the 88th in a round-robin tournament, and the 10th since its organization under an own league committee, the Lega Serie A. Juventus are the defending champions. The season is scheduled to run from 24 August 2019 to 24 May 2020.[2]

Events[edit]

On 14 April 2019, Chievo returned to Serie B after 11 years.[3] Following this on 5 May Frosinone was relegated after one year[4] while the last team to be relegated was Empoli (on 26 May 2019) also after just one year.[5]

Teams that were promoted directly from 2018–19 Serie B were Brescia (on 1 May 2019, after 8 years of absence[6]) and Lecce (10 days later, after 7 years[7]) while the last team to join was Hellas Verona (after just one season of relegation) by winning the promotion play-off on 2 June.[8]

On 28 June 2019, Milan were excluded from Europa League after breaches of the UEFA Financial Fair Play Regulations. [9] Roma were then moved to the Europa League group phase while Torino entered the preliminary round.[10]
