Similar to other countries of the world, Italy also has its own top football league called Serie A.  The sponsor for Serie A is actually Italy’s top mobile phone service provider, Telecom Italia Mobile (also known as TIM), making Serie A’s official name “Serie A TIM.”  Serie A was originally founded during the year 1898, making it one of the world’s oldest football leagues; however, during this time the league was structured differently than it is today.  The teams were actually separated into regional groups, but in 1929 the structure of Serie A was reformed and is considered by many to be more organized than the original.

 

Since the year 2004, twenty teams comprise Serie A and each team plays a total of 38 games in a season (comprising a total of 380 games for the entire season).  The format followed by Serie A is extremely functional, with the season divided into two halves.  During the first half of the season (called the “andata”) each team will play every other team once – half of the teams will play in their home stadium and the other half will be playing “away” games.  During the second half of the season (called “ritorno”) each team will play every team that they played before in the exact same order, however the home games and away games are switched.  Every team that played an away game before will play that exact same team but in their home stadium.  Many fans of Serie A agree that this format is easy to follow and keep up with as far as scores are concerned.
