In the same week AFC Bournemouth all but sealed the promotion to the Premier League with three promotions in six seasons, a team from Italy has gone one better.

Carpi FC sealed promotion to Serie A for the first time in club history, their fourth promotion in six seasons, after a 0-0 draw with Bari on Tuesday night which secured at least a second place finish in Serie B.

The Biancorossi needs just two more points from its final four games to win the title as their remarkable rise continues. Their Stadio Sandro Cabassi home holds just over 4,000 fans and they won promotion from Serie D, a semi-pro league, just five years ago.

Remarkably, they have achieved four promotions in six seasons with largely the same group of players and they will now welcome the likes of Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Roma and Lazio to the town of just 67,000 people in the province of Modena.

Below is video footage of the Carpi players celebrating in the locker room as their manager Fabrizio Castori has masterminded the promotion to Serie A in his first season in charge. Bravo.
