Olbia Calcio 1905 S.r.l. (or simply Olbia) is an Italian association football club, based in Olbia, Sardinia, and currently playing in Serie C.


The white logo as Olbia Calcio


The club was founded in 1905 as Olbia Calcio.

However, It is often debated if Olbia were in fact formed in 1906.  The first written record is dated January 12, 1906: from the pages of La Nuova Sardegna.  When it was announced that "…even in Sardegna, a gymnastics club has been formed which has taken the name of Olbia…” and went onto say that many youths had joined, in fact about one hundred had done so.

It was born from the ideas and developed and delivered by the athlete Egidio Serra, who had been hatching for some time probably during the last few weeks of 1905.

In 2001–02, they were the champions of Serie D and earned promotion to Serie C2.

After the 2009-10 Lega Pro Seconda Divisione the club was dissolved for financial problems. However, FIGC formally canceled the membership of Olbia Calcio S.r.l. in 2016,[1] after the promotion of the new Olbia.


In the Summer of 2010 the club was refounded as U.S. Olbia 1905 A.S.D.[2] and restarted from the sixth-tier Eccellenza Sardinia. They won this league in 2012–13 and were promoted to Serie D. The club was also known as just A.S.D. Olbia 1905.[3][4] The club later incorporated as a limited company: Olbia Calcio 1905 S.S.D. S.r.l. circa 2015–16 season.

In 2016 the club promoted to Lega Pro to fill the vacancies as Olbia Calcio 1905 S.r.l..[5]
