Monterosi Tuscia Football Club, commonly known just as Monterosi, is an Italian association football club located in Monterosi, Lazio. It currently plays in Serie C.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1968, but the first news about it date back to 2004, when it competed in Seconda Categoria.[3] They reached Promozione in 2007, and were first promoted to Eccellenza in 2009 through playoffs.[3]

In 2016, when Luciano Capponi took the presidency and the club was merged with Nuova Sorianese, the club was renamed to Nuova Monterosi and won the 2016–17 Eccellenza league, thus ensuring themselves a historical first time to Serie D the following season.[3] In 2020, under head coach David D'Antoni, Monterosi narrowly missed on promotion to Grosseto following the 2019–20 season halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy.[3]

In the 2020–21 Serie D season, Monterosi won the Girone H of the league, thus ensuring themselves a spot in the Serie C for the following season.[5] Following te promotion, the club was renamed Monterosi Tuscia, in order to better represent the whole area of the city of Monterosi historically known as Tuscia.[6] For their 2021–22 Serie C debut season, Monterosi had to move from their hometown stadium, Stadio Marcello Martoni, as its capacity of 500[7][8] was deemed incompatible with the league rules, and opted to relocate at the Stadio Enrico Rocchi in Viterbo for their home games.
