Latina Calcio 1932 (usually referred to as simply Latina), is an Italian association football club based in Latina, Lazio. They compete in Serie D.

History

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

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] The club was refounded as Latina Calcio 1932 and competed in Serie D for the 2017–18 season.[6][7]
