History[edit]

Previous logo of the club

The club was founded in 1945 as Unione Sportiva Latina Calcio and subsequently re-established several times until 2009, when it attained its present name.

The team reached the Lega Pro Prima Divisione for the first time in 29 years,[1] after being promoted from the Lega Pro Seconda Divisione group C in the 2010–11 season. In 2013 they were promoted to Serie B.

On April 21, 2013 the club won its first trophy, the 2012–13 "Coppa Italia Lega Pro",[2] after defeating Viareggio in the finals.[3][4]

Their first Serie B season ended up in third place and eventually losing in the play-off final against Cesena

At the end of the 2016-17 Serie B season the club was declared bankrupt after failing to find a new buyer, with debts of over 6 million euros, meaning a new incarnation of Latina would have to begin from the amateur leagues.[5]
