Foundation[edit]

The club was founded in 1990 as Calcio Portogruaro-Summaga[2] after the merger of then-Promozione clubs Associazione Calcio Portogruaro (founded in 1919 in the city of Portogruaro) and Associazione Calcio Summaga (from Summaga, a frazione of Portogruaro itself).

From 2007 to 2013[edit]

In the Serie C2 2007-08 regular season, Portosummaga finished third in Girone B, and qualified for the promotional playoffs. The team defeated fourth-placed SPAL in the semi-finals, because it was the higher classified team after the pair ended in 4–4 aggregate tie. In the finals, it defeated second-placed Bassano Virtus 5–3 on aggregate to win promotion to, the then-called Lega Pro Prima Divisione for the 2008–09 season.

On 9 May 2010, under the tenure of former Serie A defender Alessandro Calori, the club defeated Verona on the final matchday to gain promotion to the Serie B, and they therefore marked their first appearance in the Italian second tier in the 2010–11 season. However, the club was relegated to Lega Pro Prima Divisione after only a single season in Serie B, finishing 21st. In the 2012–13 season the club was relegated to Lega Pro Seconda Divisione.

A.S.D. Portogruaro[edit]

The club was refounded with the current name in the summer 2013 restarting from Promozione. In 2019 the local entrepreneur Andrea Bertolini bought the club, at the end of the season the team obtained the promotion to Eccellenza Veneto without ever losing a game.

Colors and badge[edit]
