Il declino della Serie A/ The Decline of Serie A

Dear all,

I'm a university student from Southampton Solent in England studying '"Football studies and Business".
My name is Vitale and I was born in England of Italian parents, I'm very fond of football in general but in particular Italian football. For my thesis I chose to investigate the current situation of Serie A. I therefore kindly ask for a little help expressing your opinion on the current state of Serie A answering my questions attached to this link. http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/Y5PO7/
Your answers will help me figure out what you think might need to be changed and in what manner, to bring back to the fans Italy most ‘loved sport’. We all have a duty to bring Italian football to its former glory known and restore its prosperity.
It would be for me an honor to include your opinions in my thesis.
I would like to thank you in advance for your attention,
I offer you my best regards

Is Serie A worst today then what it was in 1990s? yes, though I'm starting to think otherwise. Is Serie A in decline? Absolutely not because a decline means that you're still on a downward trend. If we are to use the Business Cycle as a tool to see where we are then Serie A is at the beginning of the Recovery Phase. Serie A hit bottom somewhere between 2008-2010.


I'm a passionate Serie A and Azzurri fan. I've been following both Serie A and Azzurri ever since its heyday and it hurts to see the fall of Serie A. But to tell you the truth, the fall of Serie A did not start when the stars left Serie A during early 2000s but Serie A it started during the 1990 WC in Italy. 1990 World Cup was the best thing that could've happened to Italy, but looking back from 2015 it was the worst thing. Why? Because it was a short-sighted approach. Twelve stadiums were the venue, ten being renovated and two new stadiums. Of the twelve stadiums, only three stadiums offers good pitchview because it is w/o an athletic track. The 9 that remains, Dell Alpi was demolished after just 16 years being built, Stadio Friuli had 75% of it demolished during its recent renovation, Renato Dell'Ara will see the 50% demolition of its structured within the next 12mos, Stadio Sant'Elia will see 100% demolition within the next 3 years, Stadio Artemio Franchi soon will probably be demolished once Fiorentina move to their new stadium, San Paolo well I think Fabio Cannavaro describes it well "When I pass by the San Paolo it makes me sad". There are two more stadiums San Nicola and Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi, but I think you got the point. As you can see, we're just starting to recover from the mistakes made at World Cup 1990 at 26 years later.

There are several reasons behind the fall of Serie A. One of the reason that everyone seems to unify on are the dilapidated infrastructures and the lack of gameday revenue due to renting of the stadiums. Dilapidated infrastructures cost Serie A marketability on television and transfer targets while renting stadiums means that it prevent teams to fully keep the revenue they receive from ticket sales. Since 2010, Serie A was able built two new stadiums, Juventus Stadium and Stadio Friuli, and privatize them along with Mapei Stadium - Citta del Tricolore. Within the next 18months, Serie A will hopefully add another 3 brand new stadium with Stadio della Roma, the new Fiorentina Stadium, and Stadio Casaleno di Frosinone and renovate another two with Stadio Atleti d'Azzurri Bergamo and Stadio Dell'Ara and while privatizing all of them. So if you include, San Siro, Ferraris, Olimpico, and Olimpico di Torino then we will have 14 out of the 20 teams with respectable stadiums.

We haven't even touched on the youngsters and the rise of Serie A with the stadium projects which would benefit not only the league but the entire nation. But let start on these.

Forget stadiums, merchandising, other shit for a while... it's all true of course, but forget it for a while. In terms of quality of the players serie A is not the best league in the world but just the Spanish Liga is definitely better, while the English Premier league, in spite of the huge money incomes is pretty much on the same level, and so it's the Bundesliga. I love to repeat that when Italy won the world cup in 1982 serie A were more or less the 10th best league in Europe, so talking about decline makes me smile. It is not the Roman Empire, it's a country with a strong tradition in football the way many other countries have a strong traidtion in football. You must not forget Italy has fantastic traditions, but also a traditional incompetence if not corruption of our leaders. Nothing new. It has always been like that, maybe a little better now actually! The stadiums of the world cup in 1990 are a clear example of what I mean, but while they surely were a waste of money and an opportunity which was missed, no one would dare to say it wasn't predictable because everything is built in Italy is first of all an opportunity to skim money.

The link looks legit, maybe a "student" created a bot and decided to spam forums so he can get more responses.
