The 2012–13 Serie A (known as the Serie A TIM for sponsorship reasons) was the 81st season since its establishment and the 3rd since its organization under a league committee separate from Serie B. It began on 25 August 2012 and ended on 19 May 2013. Juventus were the defending champions.
A total of 20 teams contested the league, comprising 17 sides from the 2011–12 season and three promoted from the 2011–12 Serie B. As in the previous years, Nike provided the official ball for all matches, with a new Nike Maxim Serie A model to be used throughout the season for all matches.
The 2012–13 season features the return of Pescara, Torino, and Sampdoria, who were promoted back to Serie A after nineteen, three, and one years respectively. It is also Cagliari's first season out of Stadio Sant'Elia after more than 40 years, following its closure due to safety issues; as a replacement, the team agreed to renovate the Stadio Is Arenas located in Quartu Sant'Elena, in order to use it as its home venue for this season (Cagliari has ongoing plans to build its own brand-new stadium in the next few years). The fixtures were presented on 26 July in a lavish hour-long televised ceremony.
Positions by round
The table lists the positions of teams after each week of matches. In order to preserve chronological evolvements, any postponed matches are not included to the round at which they were originally scheduled, but added to the full round they were played immediately afterwards. For example, if a match is scheduled for matchday 29 (Sampdoria vs Internazionale), but then postponed and played between days 30 and 31, it will be added to the standings for day 30.
If there is a color without a number, it means that the team is at least qualified for that round.
