L'Aquila Calcio 1927 is an Italian association football club located in L'Aquila, Abruzzo. They currently play in the Lega Pro Prima Divisione in Girone B.

History[edit]

Existence of football clubs in L'Aquila can be traced back to 1910, when an amateur club called Football Club L'Aquila, then unregistered to the Italian Football Federation, already existed. In 1926, the club began using red and blue as their official colors. In 1929, a new club called Società Sportiva Città dell'Aquila was founded, but lasted only a few years. In September 1931, Associazione Sportiva L'Aquila was founded as local fascist sports organizations starting playing in the locally-organized Seconda Divisione. After two promotions, L'Aquila spent its first season in the second-tier Serie B.[1] In 1936, a train accident in Contigliano, Lazio seriously injured several of the team's players and left head coach Attilio Buratti dead. Later, the club later did not manage to escape relegation and its Serie B tenure ended after three seasons.

On December 1937, L'Aquila played a Coppa Italia game against Juventus and lost by a three-goal margin, 4–1. The club spent a total of five consecutive seasons in third-tier Serie C before they were dismissed from play during World War II. In 1943, the club was refounded as Sportiva L'Aquila 1944 playing in Serie C three more seasons from 1945 to 1948. After spending several seasons in the lower tiered leagues, the club was readmitted to Serie C in 1958, where it spent a decade after being relegated to Serie D in 1969. The club won promotion to Serie C2 in 1979, though again, they were relegated to amateur football status in 1982.

In 1993, the club was readmitted to Serie C2 to fill a league vacancy, but the club fell through a year later due to bankruptcy. In 1994, Associazione Sportiva L'Aquila was founded and admitted to Eccellenza, and then became Vis L'Aquila in 1995 after a merger with Serie D squad Paganica Calcio. In 1998, the club won promotion to Serie C2, and reached Serie C1 in 2000 after winning a playoff against Acireale.

In 2004, the club was relegated back to Serie C2, only to fall through once again and readmitted to Eccellenza under their current name. Following the 2009 L'Aquila earthquake, the club was promoted to Serie D under deliberation of the Lega Nazionale Dilettanti after it was realized the club was unable to complete the remaining two games left in the season with the club sitting at the top of the division. In the 2009–10 season, the club was promoted from Serie D to the Lega Pro Seconda Divisione.
