MUMBAI: The upcoming season of Serie A will be the 118th season of top-tier Italian football and fans can expect nothing less than non-stop nail-biting action from August 24, 2019 to May 24, 2020 live and exclusive on SONY TEN 2 and SONY TEN 2 HD channels.

Serie A is amongst the premier football leagues in the world and hosts some of the most famous football clubs like Juventus FC, AC Milan, AS Roma, Napoli SSC and Inter Milan among others. The league is ranked third among European leagues according to UEFA's league coefficient and is home to some of the world’s best footballers like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gianluigi Buffon, Gonzalo Higuain, Lorenzo Insigne, Romelu Lukaku and Matthis De Ligt to name a few.

It’s well-known that football is interwoven in the Italian fabric and club rivalries run beyond just teams and there is a lot to look forward to in Serie A this season.

· “The Phenomenon” - Cristiano Ronaldo’s move from Real Madrid to Juventus FC did send reverberations across the footballing world. However, Juventus has hugely benefitted from his presence and is all set for his second season with them. Stay tuned to see if he can be the messiah in raising Juventus FC to domestic and European grandeurs this season.

· Playground of Success - Serie A has been the playground in which many of the greatest managers in history cut their teeth before achieving success elsewhere. The tactical rigor of Serie A has produced some of the finest innovators in the game such as Maurizio Sarri, who returns to the Italian league but this time managing his previous nemesis, Juventus FC.

· Key Transfers - Change is the only constant, but in football, it makes and breaks the teams. This season, there have been some major shifts as Juventus made a big statement by signing the teenage defender, Matthis De Ligt, for a fee of $84.3 million and Romelu Lukaku made his move from Manchester United FC to FC Inter Milan.

· Fiercest Rivalries - With many Serie A clubs hailing from Italy’s major cities, there are a plethora of derbies - Juventus and Fiorentina share Serie A’s most bitter rivalry followed by The Milan Derby which is the most awaited fixture in the Italian football calendar and finally Lazio Vs. Roma which is billed as the battle of Rome, a fixture where the fans take center stage.

The Italian league has been gaining in popularity in India over the past few years and became the most sampled international football league in the 2018/19 season. Fans in India can catch Serie A live on SPSN channels, along with a vast bouquet of premier football properties like UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, FA Cup, FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019, FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Paraguay 2019 and many more.
