Stadium law can transform Serie A

The law treating antiquated stadiums as precious antiques to be protected could finally change, and Richard Hall sees it as a transformative moment for Calcio.

Have you ever seen the proposed design for the new Napoli Stadium? What about the renovation of Bologna? How about that Siena re-model with the grass roof (yes grass, not glass)? Or the Stadio Della Roma project that has been going for pretty much a decade at this point?

Antonio Conte was happy to see Inter ‘send a signal of consistency’, pointed out that Christian Eriksen is still ‘settling’ at the club and said he’s seeing ‘the work starting to bear fruit’.

Trapani, Catania and Siena miss wage payments

Serie B side Trapani, Serie C outfits Siena and Catania have been deferred to the Disciplinary Commission and could be docked points for not paying wages on time.

The FIGC prosecutor received notice from the COVISOC that the three clubs did not pay their employees the February 2020 salary by the March 16 deadline.

Football Italia calcio quiz - Serie A 2005-06

Think you know your Capocannoniere from your catenaccio? Test your Serie A knowledge with Football Italia’s calcio quiz, 2005-06 edition!

The 2005-06 Serie A season will ultimately be remembered for one thing: Calciopoli. The investigation exposed a web of contacts and undue influence, with Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi sitting at the centre of it.

Calciopoli only came to light in May 2006, at a time when Juve should have been celebrating the Scudetto. Instead they were relegated to Serie B and had two titles stripped from their record, with the fallout from that decision still causing controversy today.

Football Italia calcio quiz - Serie A 2003-04

Think you know your Capocannoniere from your catenaccio? Test your Serie A knowledge with Football Italia’s calcio quiz, 2003-04 edition!

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.
