Spezia was promoted to Italy’s Serie A for the first time on Thursday.
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.
