Santarcangelo Calcio is an Italian association football club, based in Santarcangelo di Romagna, Emilia-Romagna.

The club didn't sign up for the Eccellenza in 2019 and so dissolved.

History[edit]

The club was founded as A.S.D. Santarcangelo as a sports association in 1926. It is the most supported club within the Santarcangelo di Romagna area.

SquadraMia takeover and Lega Pro promotions[edit]

After a thorough analysis by the founders of SquadraMia (a non-profit web-venture that aimed to purchase and manage an Italian football team whereby the venture's members vote on matters normally reserved for traditional club management, akin to Ebbsfleet United F.C. in England), between various clubs who were part of a final evaluation stage. On 23 July 2009, ASD Santarcangelo was chosen as the ideal team for their project with 96.4% of total preferences. The association subsequently acquired 10% of the club shares.

In the season 2010–11, Santarcangelo won the Group F of Serie D and was promoted to Lega Pro Seconda Divisione for the first time. After the 2011–12 Lega Pro Seconda Divisione season, the club terminated its agreement with SquadraMia.

Following a fifth place in the 2013–14 Lega Pro Seconda Divisione, Santarcangelo was admitted to the inaugural season of the unified third tier of Italian football, the 2014–15 Lega Pro.
