The Football Club Treviso is an Italian football club from Treviso . Fortunately, Treviso was able to compete in the top Italian league, Serie A , for the first time in the 2005/06 season .


The club has existed since January 18, 1909, but there is evidence that football was played in Treviso as early as 1896. The founding of the club goes back to the German Manfred Herion , who, based in the area, promoted local football in previous years.

In the first few years the club colors were still black and white, in today's club colors sky blue and white the local rival Tarvisium initially ran . It was only since the club was reorganized in 1913 that the light-colored jerseys were played . Until then, football in Treviso was limited to regional games; Opponents at that time were the arch rivals AC Venice or Padova Calcio  - it was not until 1915 that the Trevisians played for the regional championship in Veneto .

The post-war period was marked by initial successes for the club. The first game against an international opponent took place in 1922 against Meteor Vienna . Three years later, Treviso played in the highest Venetian championship, but soon loses the supremacy to AC Torino . The restructuring of the league towards the end of the 1920s resulted in Treviso playing in Serie C for the coming years . The first promotion to Serie B followed in the 1938/39 season . After the resumption of play after the Second World War , Treviso initially played in a mixed league between Serie B and C clubs. Due to the league reform in 1948, however, Treviso had to relegate back to Serie C. In the 1950s, the promotion to Serie B was sought, which soon succeeded under the leadership of Nereo Rocco . He stayed with the club for three years and later achieved great success with AC Milan . The successes for Treviso in Serie B, however, remained modest, repeatedly fighting against relegation, which became a reality in 1955. A year later there was even a "slip" in the fourth division. After getting promoted the following season and initial problems, Treviso became a constant in Serie C and stayed there throughout the 1970s. 1971 follows again the descent into the fourth division, which now Series D said. It wasn't until three years later that he was promoted to the professional league.

In the 1980s, Treviso was still not very successful and also struggled with financial problems. The owner of the club changed several times and before the economically desolate situation one had to capitulate sportily. Relegations to Series C2 and Series D followed. On February 6, 1993, the Treviso FBC was founded in 1993 and the previous club was liquidated . Two years later, in 1995, they were promoted back to the C2 series. The march into the C1 series in 1996, as a C2 champion, together with local rivals US Triestina, was enthusiastically celebrated . Borne by the wave of success, the promotion to Serie B actually succeeded in the following season. After 42 years of abstinence, Treviso returned to Serie B in 1997 and was able to establish itself well and finished eighth at the end of the season. The return also led to duels with old rivals AC Venice , Padova Calcio and Hellas Verona .

In Serie B you play consistently well and establish yourself in the midfield, but without being able to set permanent accents. For the 2000/01 season, the relegation to the third division followed, but it was again not permanent. Back to the 2003/04 season in Serie B, they spent the following season in the lower midfield. In the following season Treviso finished in excellent 5th place and took the rise Playoff to Serie A in part. The opponents turned out to be too strong and Treviso initially seemed to remain in Serie B. Unexpectedly, however, there was a chance for Treviso to rise. League decisions made it possible for the club to definitely move up as a newcomer in August 2005. The first place in Serie B, CFC Genoa , was refused promotion due to match-fixing ( see the article on CFC Genoa ). Due to financial problems, FC Turin and AC Perugia were also denied the Serie A license. The joy in Treviso, to be promoted to the highest Italian league for the first time together with Ascoli Calcio , was great.

In 2001 and 2002, the supporters of FBC Treviso made negative headlines with their racist behavior. In 2001, in a game of their team at Ternana Calcio, they insulted the Nigerian Omolade, who had replaced Treviso, with monkey grunts and a banner that read (in Italian) "We don't want the Negro!" - at that time the team had it The following game against Genoa 93 set a counterpoint against their own Tifosi , as all players ran up blackened faces in solidarity with Omolade. In 2002, the Treviso fans demonstratively left their block in an away game at AC Lumezzane when Brazilian substitute Reginaldo Ferreira Da Silva came up for their team.

The actual stadium in Treviso, the Stadio Omobono Tenni, only holds 9,400 seats and was therefore initially not considered suitable for Serie A. For this reason, all home games should be played in Padua in the 2005/06 season ( Stadio Euganeo , 32,300 seats). This was also done at the beginning of the season, with interested fans being brought from Treviso to Padova by shuttle bus. In the meantime, however, the FBC Treviso has received approval from the Lega Calcio to play in its own stadium and has since played its home games again in the Stadio Omobono Tenni, which is not far from the historic city walls of Treviso to the northeast of the city center.

Treviso finished last at the end of the 2005/06 season and was relegated to Serie B again. After the club had spent the following three years in Serie B, the economic collapse followed after relegation to the third highest division. This resulted in the exclusion from all professional leagues, whereupon the club competed for the 2009/10 season under the name Associazione Sportiva Dilettantistica Treviso 2009 in the sixth class Eccellenza Veneto . Although Treviso only occupied a secured midfield position in the final table at the end of the season, the club was classified by the Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio in the fifth-rate Serie D. In the following two seasons, the club, now active under the name Football Club Treviso, achieved two promotions in a row and the promotion up to the third-rate Lega Pro Prima Divisione .

In the 2012/13 season, however, the immediate relegation to the fourth-class Lega Pro Seconda Divisione followed . However, FC Treviso did not meet the economic criteria in particular to compete in the lowest professional league. This resulted in another exclusion of the Italian association from all professional leagues. Ultimately, the club managed to secure participation in the seventh-class Promozione Veneto for the 2013/14 season .
