The season 2004/2005 was the first with expanded Serie A league from 18 to 20 clubs. Juventus finished as champions, but the title was not awarded due to involvement in the Serie A scandal of 2006.
The album Calciatori covers with stickers all the four professional leagues (A, B, C1 and C2). It begins with the calendar of the season and the shining sticker of the Calciatori emblem (half sticker that comes together with the emblem of Acireale from Serie C1). Serie A clubs are then shown in alphabetical order with four pages and 24 stickers each: the team photo, the supporters, the club badge (shining sticker), the coach, and 20 players. On these pages there is space for up to 6 update stickers per club, which were released in an update set including a total of 104 stickers. The mini stickers "Trasferito" (=transferred) can be placed in correspondence of the replaced player/manager.
In the middle of the album there is a section dedicated to the winners of the season 2003-2004. These 10 stickers could be found in Ringo products and not in regular packets. Here we find stickers of Shevchenko (top scorer Serie A), Luca Toni (top scorer Serie B) and the winners of the season's titles.
Serie B clubs have a total of 8.5 stickers each: the team photo (full sticker) the shining club badge (half sticker) and 14 players (half sticker each). Palermo won the Serie B championship 2004/2005 and got promoted to the Serie A.
The third professional league (Serie C1) is divided in two groups (A and B). The first group includes 19 clubs and the second 18 clubs. For each club the collection includes a team photo (full sticker) and a shining club badge (half sticker). There are in total 56 clubs divided in three groups (A, B, and C).
The last professional league (Serie C2) is included with just a shining club badge (half sticker) per club. The last section of the album is dedicated to the Women's Serie A and it includes a team photo and club badge sticker for each of the 12 competing clubs.
