Empoli crest

 

On Monday 4th May, Tuscan Serie B side Empoli FC won promotion under coach Alessio Dionisi from the Italian second tier, Serie B to, Serie A with just two games left to play, the first one against their closest rivals Salernitana.

Known as a bit of a yo-yo club over the past few years, having been relegated from Serie A inĀ  2016/17 before re-gaining promotion immediately the following season and then being promptly relegated again at the end of 2018/19, Empoli, founded in 1920, will hopefully now have the infrastructure in place to remain in Serie A for a number of years to come.

Bravo Empoli, Moltobene!
