Bologna had to match Lecce's result against Vicenza in their home game against play-off contenders Pisa to ensure promotion and they did so when both sides won 1-0.

"We have worked with enthusiasm over the last three years and that has allowed us to recover as a club to the point where 35,000 people turned up today," Bologna president Alfredo Cazzola boomed.

"This club and this city definitely deserve a place in Serie A. We asked the fans not to invade the pitch so that the squad could do a lap of honour and they did.

"I am very proud that we have completed the mission we set for ourselves two and a half years ago."
