FoundationEdit

The club was founded in 1923 as U.S. Sambenedettese, having been 21 seasons in Serie B (last time in 1989) and 39 seasons in Serie C/LegaPro.[citation needed]

The first refoundationEdit

The second refoundationEdit

In 2006 the sports title of S.S. Sambenedettese Calcio was transferred to a new company of the same name (P.IVA 01702690445).[1]

The third refoundationEdit

In 2012–13 season it won Group F of Serie D, but it was not promoted to Lega Pro Seconda Divisione as it was excluded by Federal Council's decision for incomplete documentation of submission to the league.[2] The company behind the club also changed the name to U.S. Sambenedettese 1923 S.r.l. at that time.[3]

The fourth refoundationEdit

Sambenedettese Calcio[4] by the entrepreneur Gianni Moneti restarting from Eccellenza.[citation needed] The season 2013/2014 sees the victory in Eccellenza Marche and the promotion in Serie D. The next year Manolo Bucci joined the company with Moneti. The new company aims to win the Serie D girone F, but at the end of season Samb was only 3rd and loses the first match of play-off. On June 17, 2015 Bucci leaves Sambenedettese and Moneti starts to find another partner.[citation needed]

August 4, 2015 Gianni Moneti, after two years, sells the company to Franco Fedeli that after two days submit repechage apply for Lega Pro to FIGC.[citation needed]

In 2016 Sambenedettese promoted back to Lega Pro as the Group F winner of 2015–16 Serie D. The club was known as S.S.D. Sambenedettese ARL at that time.[5]
