The sport club was founded in 1908. The unofficial football activity began in 1910, and the football team was created in 1913.
In February 2009, the club made national headlines by hiring 70-year old UEFA Cup-winning coach Luigi Simoni as technical director (due to age limits), with former under-19 team boss Riccardo Tumiatti being promoted as first team coach. In the season 2010-11 Lega Pro Prima Divisione season the club won promotion to Serie B after 63 years, under the guidance of Vincenzo Torrente (as appointed by Simoni himself). However, Gubbio's stay in the second tier of Italian football lasted only one season as they were immediately relegated back to Lega Pro Prima Divisione.
