Spezia win promotion to Serie A for first time despite defeat

Friday, August 21, 2020

Spezia have reached Serie A for the first time in history and follow Benevento and Crotone despite  Thursday’s 1-0 defeat to Frosinone in the Serie B play-off.

The Ligurians lost 1-0 against Frosinone but it was enough to take them to the top flight after the 1-0 win at the Benito Stirpe last Saturday.

However, Spezia were promoted on the tiebreaker rule of having finished higher in the table in the regular season. Spezia finished third and Frosinone eighth.

The other promoted teams are Benevento, which won Serie B by 18 points, and Crotone.

Spezia was founded in 1906 and last played in Italy’s first division in the 1920s, before the Serie A was formed.

The team is based in La Spezia, a city along Italy’s northwestern coast with a population of less than 100,000.
