Cuoiovaldarno Romaiano Football Club,[1] colloquially known as Cuoiovaldarno, was an Italian football club based in Santa Croce sull'Arno, Tuscany.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 2003 with the denomination of Cuoiopelli Cappiano Romaiano, as a merger between Cappiano Romaiano, a small team from Ponte a Cappiano, frazione of Fucecchio, who was just promoted to Serie C2 at the time, and Cuoio Pelli, a regionally more renowned Serie D team from Santa Croce sull'Arno.

The club played in Lega Pro Seconda Divisione consecutively from 2003 to 2009, when they were defeated by Bellaria in the relegation playoffs. In June 2009, the club also announced to have switched to the denomination of Cuoiovaldarno.[1] However, only a month later the club's chairman decided to renounce playing in Serie D for the 2009–10 season, thus causing the exit of the club from football panorama.

Colors and badge[edit]

The team's colors were white, red and blue.
