Football Italia calcio quiz - Serie A 2003-04

The 2003-04 season saw Serie A say hello to one star of the future, Ricky Kaka, and goodbye to one of the greats, Roberto Baggio. As the Brazilian’s Milan lifted their 17th Scudetto at the end of it, the Divine Ponytail bowed out after a mesmerising career.

Ultimately, the Rossoneri claimed the title by 11 points, with Roma and Juventus fighting it out for second. Inter rounded off the top four while the teams doomed to Serie B – Perugia, Modena, Empoli and Ancona – were eventually settled by a relegation play-off.

Epidemic of calcio bankruptcies

Since Fiorentina went bankrupt in 2002, 153 Italian clubs have had to be refounded, merged with other clubs, or disappeared altogether.

This week saw Bari and Cesena fail to register for Serie B, and both clubs will be declared bankrupt and begin again in Serie D, providing someone can be found to take on the club.

Under Italian rules, control of the sporting entity passes to the mayor of the city in question, who can then appoint a successor.

What happened to Modena?

Today the Lega Pro will officially throw Modena out of the league, and the club will be declared bankrupt.

The Canarini haven’t played their last four games, and their no-show against Santarcangelo yesterday will see them expelled from the division.

Bankruptcy will follow, ending 105 years of history, but how did the former Serie A side get into this situation?

Words: Gaby McKay

Today is set to be the fourth, so failing to turn up for the Santarcangelo fixture will see the club thrown out of the division.
