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

The club currently plays in Serie B.


A.C. Carpi[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] Starting from the 1930s, they mostly played between Serie C and Serie D. Carpi achieved their best result in 1997, a third place 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[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.

In the season 2009-10 it gets the repechage in Lega Pro Seconda Divisione, given the number of teams in financial difficult.

In the season 2010-11 the team from Lega Pro Seconda Divisione was promoted to Lega Pro Prima Divisione.

Serie B[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.

Carpi FC's first ever fixture at Serie B level ended in a 1-0 defeat away to Ternana on August 24 2013. They're first victory 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.
