The first Gioiese was founded in 1918, and its colours was white and blue with stripes. The then president was Ugo Battaglini.
The first experience Gioiese had of such level occurred after World War II, when he participated in Serie C known as Lega Interregionale South until 1948.
With president Franco Musco Gioiese played at first at the Campionato Interregionale 1981-1982 with coach Franco Scoglio and won the championship by dominating from the first to the last day.
After the departure of Scoglio, the Gioiese prepared for next season in Serie C2 with a new coach Bruno Jacoboni, but the results came negative, with a relegation on the final day, despite beating Messina.
