Football in Cesena was officially (re)born on 2nd August 2018 following the collapse of AC Cesena, a club founded in 1940 and which, in the 78 years of its existence, played for 13 seasons in Serie A - the first time in 1973/74 and the most recent in 2014/15 - also qualifying for the UEFA Cup at the end of the 1975/76 season, being knocked out in the first round by Magdeburg.
Under the name of RC Cesena the club played in Serie D, taking over the name of Romagna Centro Cesena. The club is currently owned by a consortium of 28 companies, all committed to the common goal of restoring a sustainable football club in the city of Cesena.
As well as the first team, Cesena FC also runs twenty-one youth teams with the involvement of almost six hundred children. There is a Women's Section consisting of a first team (which competes in Serie B of the National Championship) and seven youth teams (from the 15-19 year-old to the Under 11 squads) with about 140 girls.
Home matches are played at the OROGEL Stadium Dino Manuzzi (capacity 20,164), one of the arenas that hosted the European Under-21 Championships held in Italy in 2019.
With a total of 8,364 , Cesena FC recorded the highest number of season ticket holders of all 168 teams in Serie D.
Promotion from Serie D was won after just a season and Cesena FC has now returned to the ranks of fully professional clubs. Its 79th year will see the team playing in Group B of Serie C for the 2019/2020 season.
