2022–23

The 2021–22 Serie A (known as the Serie A TIM for sponsorship reasons) will be the 120th season of top-tier Italian football, the 90th in a round-robin tournament, and the 12th since its organization under an own league committee, the Lega Serie A.[1] Internazionale are the defending champions.

Teams[edit]

Twenty teams compete in the league—the top seventeen teams from the previous season and three teams promoted from the Serie B.

Crotone (relegated after only one year in the top flight), Parma (relegated after two years in the top flight) and TBD were relegated to the 2021–22 Serie B.

On 4 May 2021, Empoli gain the promotion to Italian top level after a 2-years absence.[2] Less than a week later, Salernitana returned to the top flight after 22 years of absence.[3] The final team to be promoted will be known on 27 May, at the end of the playoff rounds.
