Italian football club Venezia

Venezia is an Italian football club based in the city of Venice, Veneto. The club was founded in 1907 and currently plays in Serie B, the second level of Italian football.

Venezia have won the Coppa Italia once, in 1941–42, and have also reached the final of the competition on two other occasions. They have also won the Anglo-Italian Cup in 1994–95 and the Supercoppa Italiana in 1995. The club has played in European competitions three times: in the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1992–93, in the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2001 and 2004, and most recently back in the UEFA Europa League during the 2010–11 season.

The club was founded on 14 May 1907 as Associazione Sportiva Venezia, following the merger of two existing sports clubs in the city: Palermo FBC and Unione Sportiva Venice. The first squad comprised players from both of the former sides, and they played their first match against Milan on 21 October 1907. The club’s colours were initially blue and white, before changing to black and yellow in 1910.

The team played its first ever Serie A match in 1911–12, losing 0–6 to SPAL. 

In 1912, Venezia gained admission to the newly founded Serie B, and they finished bottom of the table that season. The following year, however, they were promoted back to Serie A, where they have remained ever since.

More recently, Venezia have been relatively successful in Serie B. They finished 3rd in 2004–05, 5th in 2005–06 and 8th in 2006–07. 

In the 2006–07 season, their top scorer was Ukrainian forward Oleksandr Iakovenko with 12 goals.

At the end of the 2008–09 Serie B season, Venezia were relegated to Serie C1 after finishing 20th.  

They bounced back after one season, however, winning promotion back to Serie B after finishing as runners-up in Serie C1 2009–10.

The 2010–11 season saw Venezia achieve their best league position for 55 years, finishing the season in 4th place and thus qualifying for the playoff semi-finals. 

In the 2011–12 season, however, they finished in 19th place and were thus relegated back to Serie C1.
