Unione Sportiva Dilettantistica Novese is an Italian football club from Novi Ligure, Piedmont. The club has won the 1921–22 Italian Football Championship, but now plays in Serie D/A.

Novese is the only Italian football team that won a championship without playing a single season in Serie A nor in Serie B.


Novese was founded in 1919 and entered Italian history by F.I.G.C. 1921–22 Italian Football Championship, a season when there were two competing major leagues in Italian football: the Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio (F.I.G.C.) and the breakaway Confederazione Calcistica Italiana, which inluded the big clubs of Northern Italy.[4][1]
