The women's football Serie A is the highest-level league competition for women's football clubs in Italian football. It was established in 1968 but main teams were composing two different federations and leagues (FICF and UISP).
In the following season main UISP teams entered FICF federation so that all Serie A teams played a single league championship.

In 1970 a new federation (FFIGC) was constituted in Rome, but not all former FICF teams entered FFIGC so that Serie A competitions had been organized by two independent federations and leagues again. In 1972 the two federations merged in the new "united" one (FFIUAGC = Federazione Femminile Italiana Unita Autonoma Giuoco Calcio) but a few ones didn't agree and refounded an independent federation in Viareggio (FICF).

Finally in 1974 a single national top Serie A league was established.

As the Serie A is currently in the top eight of UEFA women's leagues[1] the top two places qualify for the UEFA Women's Champions League.
