In the Serie C2 2007-08 regular season, Lumezzane finished fourth in Girone A, and qualified for the promotional playoffs. The team defeated third-placed Rodengo Saiano in the semi-finals, 2–1 on aggregate. In the finals, it defeated fifth-placed Mezzocorona because it was the higher classified team after the pair ended in a 0–0 aggregate tie, thus winning promotion to the now-called Lega Pro Prima Divisione for the 2008–09 season. Mario Balotelli is the most notable ex-player. He now plays for Liverpool F.C. and Italy. On 26 November 2009, Lumezzane beat Atalanta Bergamo, a Serie A team, away from home, in the Coppa Italia, giving them one of the biggest victories in their history.
