Football Club Pro Vercelli 1892.
To say the history of this club is interesting is an accurate assessment. Founded in 1892 as S.G. Pro Vercelli, a gymnastics club, changing their name to U.S. Pro Vercelli Calcio, they soon became one of the most dominant forces in Italy after climbing their way up. Between the years of 1908 and 1922 they won the Serie A a total of seven times, winning three Scudetto in a row. They remained in Serie A for a number of years after but never managed to repeat their success, and then slowly declined into the lower regions of the Italian pyramid system, doing nothing of any real significance. Recently, the clubs fortunes haven't been in great shape, and had to dissolve in 2010. Fortunately, they merged with the other club in the city, A.S. Pro Belvedere Vercelli, and changed their name to F.C. Pro Vercelli 1892. They play in the Stadio Silvio Piola, with a capacity of 8,000, named after the club legend.
In the 2010/2011 they were playing in the C2/A, which is the first (of three) groups in the fourth tier of the Italian football leagues.
And this is where our story starts (Don't open spoilers. They, well, they spoil it...)
