The first refoundation
In 1994 the sports title of Sambenedettese S.p.A. was transferred to a new company named A.S. Sambenedettese Calcio that assumes the debts of the previous company.
The second refoundation
The third refoundation
The club was refound in 2009 as U.S. Sambenedettese 1923 by the company U.S. Sambenedettese 2009 S.S.D. A.R.L.
In 2012–13 season it won Group F of Serie D, but it was not promoted to Lega Pro Seconda Divisione as it was excluded by Federal Council's decision for incomplete documentation of submission to the league. The company behind the club also changed the name to U.S. Sambenedettese 1923 S.r.l. at that time.
The fourth refoundation
In summer 2013 it was refound as A.S.D. Sambenedettese Calcio by the entrepreneur Gianni Moneti restarting from Eccellenza. The season 2013/2014 sees the victory in Eccellenza Marche and the promotion in Serie D. The next year Manolo Bucci joined the company with Moneti. The new company aims to win the Serie D girone F, but at the end of season Samb was only 3rd and loses the first match of play-off. On 17 June 2015 Bucci leaves Sambenedettese and Moneti starts to find another partner.
At the start of 2016–17 season the company behind the club changed the name to S.S. Sambenedettese S.r.l. (P.IVA 02177180441), but marketing as S.S. Sambenedettese Calcio.
On 2020, the club was sold by Franco Fedeli to Italian-Argentine entrepreneur and Bangor City F.C. owner Domenico Serafino. However, less than a year later, after Serafino's failure to comply with several financial requirements, the club was declared bankrupt, and the footballing title assigned to entrepreneur Roberto Renzi; the club was refounded as A.S. Sambenedettese and, after repaying all debts, was formally accepted by the Italian Football Federation, this way maintaining their spot in the Serie C league.
By the end of the season, the club was however excluded from Serie C due to financial irregularities, and successively admitted to Serie D following a successful appeal and the payment of a league membership fee.
