Unione Sportiva Salernitana 1919, commonly referred to as Salernitana, is an Italian football club based in Salerno, Campania. Salernitana returned to Serie B in 2015, having finished first in Lega Pro Prima Divisione - Girone C.

The club is the legitimate heir of the former Salernitana Calcio 1919[3] and there is a sports continuity also with the former Salerno Calcio[4] in the 2011-12 season[5][6] which restarted from Serie D[7] rather than from Terza Categoria, thanks to Article 52 NOIF of FIGC.[8]

The club - named Salerno Calcio - was promoted to Lega Pro Seconda Divisione as it re-obtained the original name of U.S. Salernitana 1919.[3] It was promoted to Lega Pro Prima Divisione the following season.

History

From Unione Sportiva Salernitana to Salernitana Calcio 1919

The origins of the team go back to 1919 when in Salerno was founded the former Unione Sportiva Salernitana renamed Salernitana Sport in 1978, which spent the vast majority of their history at the Serie B and Serie C levels of Italian football.

Salernitana plays their home games at Stadio Arechi. In their earliest years, Salernitana competed in the Italian Football Championship on a regional basis. They played at this level for four seasons during the 1920s. Since that time the club returned to the top level of Italian football twice; they played in Serie A during 1947-48 and 1998-99.

Salernitana, who wear an all-garnet kit, have had several name changes since they first appeared in 1919; one was after a merger with Audax Salerno.

In 2005 the club went bankrupt but were refounded by Antonio Lombardi, changing the name from Salernitana Sport to Salernitana Calcio 1919.

In the summer 2011, it did not appeal against the exclusion by Commissione di Vigilanza sulle Società di Calcio Professionistiche (Co.vi.so.c) and it is excluded by the Italian football.

Colours, badge and nicknames

Salernitana's original kit.

Salernitana originally wore light blue and white striped shirts, known in Italy as biancocelesti.[13] The blue on the shirt was chosen to represent the sea, Salerno the city lies right next to the Gulf of Salerno and has a long tradition as a porting city. During the 1940s the club changed to garnet coloured shirts, which has gained them the nickname granata in their homeland.

In the 2011-12 season as Salerno Calcio the shirt was striped blue and deep red, with the symbol of St. Matthew, patron of the city, similar to that of Barcelona.[14]

Since 12 July 2012 with the renaming as US Salernitana 1919, the colour of the first shirt is again the traditional garnet.[3]
