Benevento Calcio is an Italian association football club based in Benevento, Campania. The club was originally founded in 1929 and re-founded in 2005. As of the 2017–18 season, Benevento is playing in Serie A.
After working their way up lower divisions in their earliest years, Benevento reached Prima Divisione, the third highest professional league at that time, in the 1934–35 season. Here it finished above clubs such as Reggina in its first season within the league. Although it did not win promotion to Serie B, the team did qualify to remain in the third tier of Italian football for the 1935–36 season, re-organized to a smaller 64-team league renamed Serie C.
The company F.C. Sporting Benevento S.r.l. folded in 2005. At the same time Benevento Calcio S.p.A. was founded.
In the 2007–08 Serie C2 regular season the team finished first in Girone C, winning direct promotion to the now called Lega Pro Prima Divisione for the 2008–09 season. In the 2008–09 season, Benevento's first season in Lega Pro Prima Divisione, they finished in 2nd place. This meant Benevento would be in a two-legged play-off. They won their first two-legged play-off, but lost to Crotone 1–0 (2–1) on aggregate in the final.
Gaetano Auteri was appointed as the head manager for the 2015–16 season. In this season, Benevento won its league and reached Serie B for the first time in its history. The mathematical certainty arrived on 30 April 2016, after defeating Lecce 3–0.
