The 2016–17 Serie A (known as the Serie A TIM for sponsorship reasons) was the 115th season of top-tier Italian football, the 85th in a round-robin tournament, and the 7th since its organization under a league committee separate from Serie B. Juventus were the defending champions. The season ran from 20 August 2016 to 28 May 2017.[3][4][5]

Juventus won a record sixth consecutive title and 33rd title overall with a game in hand following their 3–0 win over Crotone.

Events

On 14 April 2016 it was announced that Serie A was selected by the International Football Association Board to test video replays, which will initially be private for the 2016–17 season, before allowing them to become a live pilot phase with replay assistance by the 2017–18 season at the latest. On the decision, FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio said, "We were among the first supporters of using technology on the pitch and we believe we have everything required to offer our contribution to this important experiment."[6]

On 29 April 2016, Crotone earned their first ever promotion to Serie A.[7] One week later, Cagliari was also promoted from Serie B after just one year of being relegated.[8] On 9 June 2016 Pescara won the Serie B play-off to return to Serie A after a 3-year absence.[9]

On 13 April 2017, historical Milan president Silvio Berlusconi sold the ownership of the club to Chinese born, Luxembourg based Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux, with Li Yonghong as representing acting chairman.[10] The former prime minister left the club after 31 years and 29 trophies.
