U.S. Livorno 1915

Union Sportiva Livorno 1915 is a semi-professional Italian soccer team based in Livorno, Tuscany, competing in the Serie D, the top-level of the semi-professional Italian leagues, after being promoted from the Eccellenza Tuscany. The team's colours are dark red. Originally, Livorno was one of the founding clubs of Italian Serie A, but since the 1950s, the team hasn't been able to reach the top flight, due to two club refoundings in 1991 and 2021. Their best season in Serie A was 1942–43, when they kept up with Torino in a thrilling competition. The US Livorno plays their home matches at the Stadio Armando Picchi.
