The 1926–27 Divisione Nazionale season was won by Torino on the field, however the title was revoked during the following season due to alleged match fixing in a derby match against Juventus. This was the first Italian championship organized on a national basis.

Pre-Season qualifications[edit]

In 1926 the Viareggio Charter” submitted the Italian football's organization to the fascist regime. The Northern League was disbanded and it was substituted by the Higher Divisions Directory, an authority appointed by the fascists. Three clubs from Southern Italy were added to the original sixteen-clubs championship to make it a national league. The 20th club was chosen by a special qualification between the relegated clubs of the Northern League.
