Empoli promoted to Serie A!

Empoli and Coach Aurelio Andreazzoli have earned promotion to Serie A after 12 months in the second division.

The Tuscan club secured a top two finish with today’s 1-1 result against Novara, as last night second-place Palermo lost 3-0 to Venezia.

It is a return to Serie A for Empoli, who were relegated in 2016-17, and will be their 13th top flight campaign.

Andreazzoli achieved something remarkable, as he only took over on December 17 after Vincenzo Viviani was fired.

He worked with Luciano Spalletti for many years and was temporarily Coach of Roma in the final weeks of the 2012-13 campaign, reaching the Coppa Italia Final.
