In July 2019, another phoenix club was founded in Syracuse[2] and named after the city as A.S.D. Città di Siracusa, the third team to do so in the 2010s. On 8 August, the phoenix club was admitted to Promozione Sicily,[3][4] the sixth tier of Italian football and the second highest tier of Sicily local football league. In 2021 the club was totally sold and became F.C. Leonzio 1909.

Another re-foundation[edit]

Immediately after the old club fled to Lentini, A.S.D. Marina di Ragusa moved to Syracuse and became actual A.S.D. Città di Siracusa.
