History[edit]

A.S.D. Siracusa[edit]

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. The club was then renamed to A.S.D. Siracusa Calcio 1924 in 2022.
