Panini Calciatori 2015

Panini Calciatori, the most complete football sticker collection, presents for the season 2014-2015 an album which focuses on the young players of the league. The cover shows the most promising young talent of each team (Kovacic for Inter, Pogba for Juventus, Anderson for Lazio, etc...) and at the end of the album there is a section about the future of the Italian national team, with stickers of young prospects. The album opens with the calendar of the competition on the back of the cover and the first stickers, the official balls of the competition (two shining half-stickers). The right page includes the trophies and logos of the competition; this year there are only two stickers in this section, the trophy and logo of Serie A (both shining stickers).

The album continues showing the Serie A teams in alphabetical order. Each team is displaced over four pages and includes 26 stickers: the shining club badge, the coach, 20 players, the three official team kits (home/away jerseys, all fabric stickers), and one player in action related to one quiz question. 

This year there are no update stickers in each team page, but there is a special section dedicated to the winter transfers (Calciomercato) just after the Serie A teams. On four pages there are 44 stickers of players transferred during the season. This stickers can be obtained separately in a dedicated update transfer set. With the update set there are also mini stickers of new players that can be glued on each team page.

The young teams that take part in the young Italian championship (Campionato Primavera) find their space in a double page with the trophy and logo of the competition (both half sticker) and 42 half stickers of team photos.

The usual section with the highlights of the season (Il Film del Campionato) includes also this year 16 extra stickers that can be found in two separate packets released in a newspaper, one in January and the other in June 2015. The first packet includes the highlights of the first half of the season; here we have stickers like the top scorer Carlos Tevez (il Cannoniere), the shutter Buffon (la Saracinesca) and the high performer Dybala (alto rendimento). The second packet includes 8 stickers with the final verdicts: the man of the year (Tevez), the top scorers (Toni and Icardi), the high performer (Anderson), the champions (Juventus, 2 stickers), the winner, the second and the third team of Serie B (Carpi, Frosinone and Bologna, respectively).

Each team has 8 stickers on one page: the club badge (half sticker), the coach (half sticker), the team photo, and 18 players (three players per sticker).

The third division (Lega Pro) is divided in three groups. There is a sticker with the logo and official ball of the competition (both half stickers) and for each team a team photo (half sticker) and a club badge (1/4 of a sticker).
