Fermana Football Club is an Italian association football club based in Fermo, Marche. The club currently play in Serie C, the third tier of Italian football after achieving promotion by winning Group F in the 2016-17 Serie D season.
The club was founded in 1920 as S.S. La Fermo and was renamed in 1924 U.S. Fermana after the merger with Fermo F.C..
In 1999 Fermana won the Serie C1/B title under head coach Ivo Iaconi, thus ensuring a historical first appearance into Serie B. That season proved to be the only one, as they were promptly relegated back into Serie C1.
Fermana relegated to Serie C2 after a disappointing 2005–06 Serie C1/A campaign ended in a poor last place, and 13 points in 34 matches. Following this relegation the club, under heavy financial struggles, were forced to give up their Serie C2 membership.

In season 2007–2008, Fermana won the championship and it is promoted in Eccellenza, but Fermana ended the season in 7th place after a disastrous year behind rival Sambenedettese (who won the championship).
In 2010–2011, Fermana drew the game with Ancona 2–2, and lost the championship by one point. The 2011–2012 season opened with the Fermana in a more balanced league victory. In 2012–13 season it won Coppa Italia Dilettanti, but went bankrupt at the end of the season.
