AC Milan's 17th scudetto celebrations

The 2003-2004 season in Italian Serie A football contained 18 teams for the 16th and last time from the 1988-89 season. With the bottom three being relegated, the 15th placed side would face the 6th highest team from Serie B, with the winner playing in the Serie A in 2004-2005.

As usual, the top two teams would progress directly to the UEFA Champions League group stage, while 3rd and 4th place would have to begin in the 3rd qualifying round. The UEFA Cup places would be awarded to 5th and 6th place, and the winners of the Coppa Italia.

AC Milan won their 17th scudetto; Roma impressed and were pushing for the title until the last few weeks of the season; Internazionale only made it to the Champions League ahead of Parma and Lazio on the last day thanks to Adriano, who had been signed from Parma earlier in the season; Lazio won the Coppa Italia against Juventus, handing Udinese the UEFA Cup spot; Ancona were relegated with only two wins, the joint lowest tally ever (Brescia Calcio's 12 points in Serie A 1994-95 is still the lowest ever); Empoli and Modena were also relegated; Perugia lost their play-off with Fiorentina, who returned to Serie A after a two year absence.

Ukrainian forward Andriy Shevchenko of Milan was the top scorer with 24 goals. The 2003-2004 league was the last professional season in the career of former European Footballer of the Year and Italian international Roberto Baggio, who finished among the tournament's top ten scorers with 12 goals, and among the all-time top five scorers, with 205 career goals. It was also the last Serie A season for Baggio's former teammate Giuseppe Signori, who then moved to the Greek Super League. Signori ended his career in Italy as the seventh highest scorer ever in Serie A.
