Asti Calcio Football Club S.r.l. was an Italian association football club based in Asti, Piedmont. The FIGC registration number of the club was 81,850.[3]

History[edit]

Founded officially in 1932 under the name Associazione Calcio Asti (in short: A.C. Asti),[citation needed] the club changed its name several times in subsequent years because of mergers with local clubs. The club participated in Serie C league in the past.

In 2006, the club changed the name from A.C. Asti to A.C.D. Asti Colligiana.[4]

The club reverted to original name A.C.D. Asti during the celebrations for the 75th year of operation in 2008.[citation needed] The club later incorporated as a società a responsabilità limitata as S.D. Asti Calcio S.r.l.. Asti also partnered with Torino F.C. in youth football in 2013.[5]

The club finished as the 14th of the Group A in the 2014–15 Serie D season.

At the start of 2015–16 Serie D season the club was expelled from the league by FIGC's Co.Vi.So.D., due to the club's financial position.[6] The club had appealed to CONI's Collegio di Garanzia dello Sport, however, the court rejected the appeal and confirming FIGC's decision.[7] In that transfer window, the club also attempted to split into two legal persons, leaving only one legal person to bear the debt.[8][9] At the same time, the club attempted to merge with Prima Categoria club A.S.D. Sandamianese Asti.[10] It was reported that the attempt to transfer the debt was failed.[11] Asti also changed the name to Asti Calcio F.C. S.r.l..[8] While Sandamianese became A.S.D. Pro Asti Sandamianese, and relocated from San Damiano d'Asti to Asti.[12] Asti was admitted to Lega Nazionale Dilettanti's (LND) Promozione - Piedmont - Aosta Valley division - Group D instead in September 2015.[13]

In May 2017, the club was penalized 2 points, to be applied to 2017–18 season.[14] A shareholder and director of Asti, Pier Paolo Gherlone was also investigated by the FIGC.[15] Gherlone also owned Pro Asti Sandamianese until 2017.[16]

Asti Calcio F.C. bankrupted in 2017.[17]

Asti's FIGC membership was finally revoked in December 2017.[18] While the membership of the spin-off, Pro Asti Sandamianese, was also cancelled in 2019 due to inactivity.[19]

Colors and badge[edit]

The team's colors are white and red.[citation needed]

Phoenix clubs[edit]

Another club, Colline Alfieri Don Bosco (FIGC registration number: 63519[20][21]) was renamed to A.S.D. Alfieri Asti as an illegitimate phoenix club. In 2019 the club was renamed to A.S.D. Asti.[20][22] The club has no relation to yet another club, Don Bosco Asti. The club played in Eccellenza Piedmont-Aosta Valley since 2017 (as of 2019–20 season).
