EventsEdit

On 14 April 2019, Chievo returned to Serie B after 11 years.[3] Following this on 5 May Frosinone was relegated after one year[4] while the last team to be relegated was Empoli (on 26 May 2019) also after just one year.[5]

Teams that were promoted directly from 2018–19 Serie B were Brescia (on 1 May 2019, after 8 years of absence[6]) and Lecce (10 days later, after 7 years[7]) while the last team to join was Hellas Verona (after just one season of relegation) by winning the promotion play-off on 2 June.[8]

On 28 June 2019, Milan were excluded from Europa League after breaches of the UEFA Financial Fair Play Regulations. [9] Roma were then moved to the Europa League group phase while Torino entered the preliminary round.[10]
