Nuova AvezzanoEdit

Following financial problems, in 2009 Nuova Avezzano Calcio tried to merge with the newly promoted to Serie C2 A.S. Pescina Valle del Giovenco. When the merging was denied by the Lega Calcio Serie C, the club folded and sold its sport rights to A.S.D. Luco Canistro.
In 2010/2011 Pescina, that is playing in Avezzano's pitch since his field is ineligible for Lega Pro, will be anyway renamed into Avezzano Valle del Giovenco.
