Società di Educazione Fisica Torres 1903 (usually referred to simply as Torres) is an Italian association football club based in Sassari, Sardinia. The team currently plays in Lega Pro.

History[edit]

Foundation[edit]

The club, that is the oldest football team in Sardinia, was founded in 1903 as Società di Educazione Fisica Torres and renamed in 1920 as Torres Calcio.

The three refoundations[edit]

The club was refounded in 1991 as Polisportiva Sassari Torres. Torres played in Serie C1 in 2005–06 season, finishing 3rd and qualifying for the promotion playoffs. It lost in the semifinal round: 2–0 on aggregate to Grosseto.

The club went bankrupt and was refounded in 2006 as Sassari Torres 1903 and placed in Serie C2.

After the second season in C2, in 2008, the club ceased again operations due to financial troubles and was refounded with the current denomination. The club competed, for the 2008–09 season, in Promozione, the 7th level of Italian football. At the end of the season, the club gained direct promotion to Eccellenza after finishing in the first place.

The 2011-12 season was one of the most successful in the club's recent history: Torres won the Coppa Italia Sardinia and finished first in Eccellenza Sardinia and was so promoted to the 2012-13 Serie D.

In 2012-13 Serie D Torres finished first in Girone G and was promoted to Lega Pro Seconda Divisione. In their first season back into professionalism, Torres could not avoid relegation after losing on playoffs to Forlì, but was successively readmitted as one of the 60 clubs of the newly unified 2014–15 Lega Pro to fill a vacancy.
