History[edit]

The club was founded in 1925 as U.S. Neritina.

Serie C[edit]

It has a quite glorious past, with three seasons in the Italian Serie C, the former 3rd level of Italian football, between the 60s and the 70s and having won 3 Coppe Italia Regionali and 1 Coppa Italia di Serie D.

From the 1998-99 to the 2001-02 season it has played in Serie C2.

Radiation and refoundation[edit]

On 6 November 2013 after renouncing to play four games in Serie D[1] Nardò was removed by LND.[2]

Before the 2014-15 season the club bought the sporting rights of ASD Copertino (from Copertino), establishing ACD Nardò. It was subsequently admitted to Eccellenza Pugliese.
