History[edit]

A.S. Calcio Figline[edit]

Old logo Calcio Figline

Founded in 1965, Figline always played in the amateur leagues until 2008, being promoted to Serie D in 2006 and then winning a second promotion as 2007–08 Serie D/E champions, thus achieving a spot in the Lega Pro Seconda Divisione for the 2008–09 season; both promotions came with Leonardo Semplici as head coach and attacking midfielder Anselmo Robbiati, formerly of Internazionale and Fiorentina, as captain.[2]

In their first professional campaign, the Tuscans were joined by another player with past and significant Serie A experience, former Fiorentina, Siena and Italy international Enrico Chiesa. The season immediately saw Figline as a serious contender for the league title, and on 10 May, despite losing 1–0 in a Tuscan derby to Colligiana, Figline mathematically won the 2008–09 Lega Pro Seconda Divisione – B title in a second consecutive triumph for the gialloblu, who will now join Lega Pro Prima Divisione in the 2009–10 season.[3][4][5]

On July 2010 the club was declared inactive to the FIGC after being refused entry to the Lega Pro Prima Divisione because of the large debts.
