Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

Serie A Weekly is proud to announce the arrival of (formerly, as the online portal to fantasy football targeted specifically for fans of Serie A. - Talk about going after a niche market. (now, which launched back in late January, knows exactly the kind of fan that will frequent its site. That’s because the new portal is devoted to the Italian soccer league that appears in its domain name. Some might find such an approach limiting, but founder Vince Cullotta sees a need in the marketplace.

“I think part of the problem with fantasy Serie A is that there are all of these sites out there that are doing it just to do it,” Cullotta told “The fantasy games are stripped down and not very exciting to the average fan. Serie A fans have nowhere else to go so they play because the options are limited.”

With an entire site devoted solely to Serie A — or Lega Calcio, for our Italian readers — Cullotta hopes to give his audience more than they might get from existing games such as those available via Yahoo, ESPN and Ole Ole.

“Our focus is the Serie A and nothing else, which sets us apart from other fantasy sites,” Cullotta said. “We want to raise the bar for Italian fantasy soccer.”

Along with the game, the site offers forums and a blog devoted to the league. The game itself offers 24 different scoring categories and provides live scoring, and the accompanying player news comes from one of the industry’s most respected sources in RotoWire.

“We’ve been impressed with Vince’s vision for his game and think it’s going to take off with a growing and untapped U.S. soccer market,” RotoWire president Peter Schoenke told “RotoWire has expanded our soccer coverage to include all the world’s major leagues, so it was a natural fit for us to work with Serie A Live.”

Of course, no matter how strong the effort, there figures to be a limited audience in this country. The American appetite for all things soccer beyond the youth level has proved to have its boundaries.

On the other hand, the wonderful thing about the Web is that a site’s access is not limited to its country of origin (at least not around these parts). To that end, Cullotta says he has plans to extend the reach overseas in the coming years, specifically into the United Kingdom and Italy.

That kind of audience should come with a healthier appetite.
