FC Rieti is an Italian association football club, based in Rieti, Lazio. The club currently competes in Serie D, the fourth tier of Italian football, playing home matches at the Stadio Centro d'Italia – Manlio Scopigno.

Formed in 1936, the team took the current name in 1996. Its main achievement has been the promotion to Serie B of Southern Italy in 1946.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1936 as Supertessile Rieti and refounded in 1948 as S.S. Rieti and 1996 with the current name.

In the seasons 1946–47 and 1947–48 it played in Serie B.

In May 2018, under the presidency of Riccardo Curci, the team was promoted to Serie C. Curci had been looking for buyers since then; at first Greek businessman Manthos Poulinakis bought the team, but some months later withdrew and sold it back to Curci.
