The 1925–26 Prima Divisione season, its final season, was won by Juventus.

Northern League[edit]

Regular season[edit]

Udinese and Parma FC had been promoted from the Second Division.

Goal average was introduced eliminating the tie-breakers.

The Northern League decided to create the Serie A with 16 teams starting in 1926, so the last four teams of each group should be relegated.

However, just after the end of the regular season the fascists postponed thus project under protests of Southern clubs which would be excluded. They imposed a National Division of two groups instead, and all relegated clubs entered into an extraordinary qualification for the new tournament.
