Italian Football Federation

History of FIGC

Costitution

The Federazione Italiana Football (FIF) was founded on 15 March 1898 with a membership of four clubs, and was recognised by the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) in 1905. In 1909 the Federation assumed the final appellation of Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio (FIGC or Italian Football Federation) and on 15 May 1910 the National team played its first match beating France 6 – 2 at the Arena.

In 1921 the federation split up, and this led to the establishment of the Confederazione Calcistica Italiana (CCI or Italian Football Confederation) which organised its own national championship (won by Pro Vercelli). The existing contrasts were soon overcome and the following year, on 26 June 1922, it was reunited. In the summer of 1926, through the direct promotion by the CONI, the Viareggio Charter was issued which operated a first distinction between “amateur” and “pro”. In August 1948 the National Council of Leagues was established and in 1959 the organisation of the National Professional League was defined (Serie A and B, or 1st and 2nd Division). Currently there is also a Serie C and the National Amateur League. Federation listed in Law no. 426 of 16/2/1942.
