Carpi Football Club 1909 is an Italian football club located in Carpi, Emilia-Romagna.

The club currently plays in Serie B.


A.C. Carpi (1909–2000)[edit]

The club was founded in the summer of 1909 by local student Adolfo Fanconi as Jucunditas (Latin for "gaiety"), and changed their denomination to Associazione Calcio Carpi a few years later.[1] Carpi played three seasons in the Italian Football Championship, the precursor to Serie A, from the 1919-20 season until 1921-22. Starting from the 1930s, they mostly played between Serie C and Serie D. Carpi achieved their best result in 1997, a third placed finish under coach Luigi De Canio which allowed them to play the Serie B promotion playoffs then lost to Monza.[1] The club was cancelled in 2000 following relegation to Serie D and subsequent bankruptcy.

Carpi F.C. 1909 (2000–present)[edit]

A new club, named Calcio Carpi, was therefore admitted to Eccellenza Emilia–Romagna. The club assumed the current denomination in 2002, following promotion to Serie D and a merger with the second team of the city, Dorando Pietri Carpi, that had just reached Serie D as well. Pietri Carpi also sold its license to Boca.

At the end of the 2009-10 season, through repechage due to the numbers of teams in financial difficulty, the club was admitted into Lega Pro Seconda Divisione. In 2010-11, the club's first season in the higher division, it was promoted again to Lega Pro Prima Divisione. In the 2011-12 season, as a result of the work being done on their stadium, the Sandro Cabassi, the team played in the Mapei Stadium – Città del Tricolore.

Serie B (2013–present)[edit]

In the season 2012–13 the team was promoted from Lega Pro Prima Divisione to Serie B for the first time ever when they defeated Lecce in the Girone A Playoff Final 2–1 on aggregate. This was the club's third promotion in just four seasons.

Carpi FC's first ever fixture at Serie B level ended in a 1–0 defeat away to Ternana on 24 August 2013. Their first win came in the manner of a 2-0 victory at Spezia Calcio courtesy of goals from Fabio Concas & Roberto Inglese. Carpi's first season in Serie B ended in a 12th place finish, only 3 points away from a Promotion playoff place, ensuring their place for another season.

The 2014–15 Serie B campaign saw Carpi, managed by experienced coach Fabrizio Castori, completing the first season half in a surprise first place, with a record, 43 points and a nine-point advantage to second-placed Frosinone.
