Serie A is the top tier of Italian football. It was officially founded in 1898, although the current format of a round-robin league system was only introduced in 1929. Inter Milan have competed in the most Serie A seasons, featuring 82 times to date.
There are 20 teams in the league, with the top 3 sides qualifying for the following season's Champions League. The most successful side in Serie A history is Juventus, who have won the league title 29 times, followed by the two Milan clubs, AC and Inter, who have both won it 18 times.
Clubs in Serie A, predominantly in the 80's, were known for their brilliant defensive discipline. Formations and tactics were often centred on defensive performances. Today it is still regarded as one of the most tactically astute leagues in Europe.
The Serie A has had the FIFA World Player of the Year in its ranks on 10 occasions in its history (more than any other league), including Ronaldo and Zidane - who each won it twice while playing in Italy.
Juventus are currently the side to beat in Serie A, boasting world class players such as Paul Pogba, Carlos Tevez, Arturo Vidal and Andrea Pirlo.
While former league giants AC Milan seem to have fallen from grace, both Roma and Napoli have recently enjoyed a resurgence in form and will look to challenge Juventus for the league title in the coming seasons.

In the 2011-12 season Juventus famously went the entire season without losing a single match.
The all-time leading goa lscorer in the competition’s history is Silvio Piola who scored 274 goals. Roma captain Francesco Totti is 2nd on the list with over 230 goals. Giuseppe Meazza – the person who AC Milan and Inter Milan’s shared stadium is named after - features 5th on the list.
