Francesco Ardizzone (born 17 February 1992) is an Italian footballer who plays for Italian Serie B club Virtus Entella

Biography[edit]

Born in Palermo, Sicily, Ardizzone started his professional career at U.S. Città di Palermo. He was the member of the reserve from 2009 to 2011. Ardizzone made his debut in the last group stage match of 2010–11 UEFA Europa League on 15 December 2010.[2]

Reggiana[edit]

On 1 July 2011 Ardizzone left for Italian third division club Reggiana along with Adriano Siragusa, as part of the deal that Gianluca Di Chiara moved to Palermo. Both clubs retained 50% registration rights of Ardizzone and Di Chiara.[3] Half of the "card" of Di Chiara was valued for €140,000 at that time.[4]

Ardizzone made 21 appearances in 2011–12 Lega Pro Prima Divisione. In June 2012 Reggiana acquired Ardizzone outright.[5][6]

Pro Vercelli[edit]

On 29 August 2013 Ardizzone was sold to F.C. Pro Vercelli 1892 in another co-ownership deal for a peppercorn of €500.[7][8][9] In June 2014 the co-ownership of Ardizzone and Mattia Bani were renewed.[10]

International career[edit]

Ardizzone capped 3 times in friendlies and 2 times in 2011 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship elite qualification for Azzurrini in 2010–11 season. In 2011–12 season he was promoted to Italy U20 team. He played 3 times in 2011–12 Four Nations Tournament and two additional friendlies against Macedonia and Denmark.
