History

Founded on 15th February 1915, Livorno were one of the original Serie A teams.

During the Serie A 2004/05 season, striker Cristiano Lucarelli won the Serie A top scorer award, outscoring the likes of Andriy Shevchenko and Adriano.

Some football players pay a billion for a Ferrari or a yacht; with that money I bought myself Livorno’s shirt. That’s all.
Cristiano Lucarelli, ex-player and club legend

In the 2019/20 season, Livorno finished last in Serie B and were relegated to Serie C. In 2020/21, Livorno again finished in last place, following a five point deduction for failing to pay player wages on time, and were relegated to Serie D. However, due to the club’s bankruptcy, they could not pay the admission fee for Serie D and the club disbanded.

The club joined the Eccellenza Toscana for the 2021/22 season under a new name, Unione Sportiva Livorno 1915. In the 2021/22 season, Livorno finished first in Group B of the Eccellenza Toscana, but were narrowly defeated in the national playoffs by S.S.D. Pomezia Calcio. However, Livorno were later admitted back into Serie D in place of Figline, who were barred from promotion after throwing a game against Tau Calcio Altopascio, which influenced the promotion seedings. In their first Serie D season, Livorno finished 5th out of 18 teams in Group E, winning a head to head tie with Flaminia, which qualified them for the promotion playoffs, but they lost to the eventual Group E playoff winners, US Pianese.
