Associazione Sportiva Dilettantistica Pineto Calcio, commonly known as Pineto, is an Italian association football club from Pineto, Abruzzo. They currently play in the Serie C league.

History[edit]

Founded in 1962,[2] Pineto have been playing in the amateur leagues of Italian football throughout their whole history. In 1977, they obtained their first promotion to Serie D, playing the Italian amateur top flight for a lone season before their return in 1983. They played Serie D until 1994, and again from 1995 to 1997, before being relegated into the lower ranks of Italian football.

In 2016, after winning the Eccellenza national promotion playoffs, Pineto were promoted back to Serie D after a 18-year absence.[3]

In the 2022–23 Serie D season, Pineto turned out to be heavy contender for a historical promotion to Serie C, and also reached the final of the Coppa Italia Serie D tournament, the very first time for a club from Abruzzo.[4] On 7 May 2023, Pineto won the Serie D Group F, thus ensuring promotion to Serie C for the first time in the club's history.[5] They ended the season by winning the 2022–23 Coppa Italia Serie D, defeating Giana Erminio in the final.[6]
