F.C. Südtirol (usually referred to as simply Südtirol or less popularly Südtirol-Alto Adige) is an Italian association football club, based in the city of Bolzano, South Tyrol.[1]

Currently it plays in Lega Pro.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1974 in Brixen as S.V. Milland.

The team was renamed to FC Südtirol-Alto Adige in 1995, where Alto Adige is the Italian name of the province and Südtirol is the German name of the province . In 2000 the company incorporated as Fußballclub Südtirol s.r.l., thus becoming FC Südtirol and relocated to Bolzano [2] (though it was legally based in Brixen until 2011[1]).

In the 2010-11 Lega Pro Prima Divisione season, Südtirol was relegated to Lega Pro Seconda Divisione after the play-off,[3] but August 4, 2011 it was later readmitted to Lega Pro Prima Divisione to fill vacancies.[4]
