Serie A increasingly northern

Serie A is increasingly northern-centric, with 15 out of 20 clubs for the 2018-19 season based above Rome, while Emilia-Romagna have four sides.

The make-up of the 20-team division was confirmed with last night’s Serie B promotion play-off final, as Frosinone got the better of Palermo, 3-2 on aggregate.

They join Empoli and Parma, who were promoted automatically as first and second in the Serie B campaign.

This means 15 out of the 20 top flight clubs are based from Tuscany upwards, as Rome and below are considered the south.
