History

Apart from a spell in Serie B in the 1940s, Pescara had a relatively undistinguished history until promotion to Serie B in 1974. With players like Giorgio Repetto and Bruno Nobili in midfield, they managed to win promotion to Serie A in 1977 after winning a play-off, but finished in their first season in Serie A in last place. A second promotion after a play-off followed, but once more they would be relegated from the top flight and descend to C1 within two years.

Nonetheless returning to Serie B after a year, Pescara would enjoy a revival after the appointment of the charismatic Giovanni Galeone in 1986. His philosophy of attacking football saw the Biancazzurri promoted to Serie A as champions for 1987, where they lasted two years with players such as Blaz Sliskovic among those starring. Galeone would return during season 1990-91 and oversaw another promotion the following year. Despite finishing bottom of Serie A for a third time, it was an attractive and entertaining side which had few problems scoring goals (thanks to midfielders Massimiliano Allegri and Ottavio Palladini) but also conceded them at an alarming rate. They were involved in a number of thrilling games like a 5-4 home defeat to Milan after being 4-2 up, and a 5-1 win over Juventus in the penultimate round (by which time they had been relegated).

Defender Giacomo Dicara enjoyed three spells at the club, the first as a teenager in the late 1980s, the third ending in 2005.

After relegation, Pescara remained in Serie B side throughout the 1990s, narrowly missing promotion in 1999. Relegation to C1 followed in 2001, with promotion in 2003 being followed by two revoked relegations in a row, thanks to bankruptcy and scandals affecting other clubs. Pescara were ultimately relegated in the 2006-07 season, with three presidential and managerial changes during the season. Since then the club has been playing Lega Pro Prima Divisione. In December 2008 the debt-ridden club was legally declared out of business, and its control passed to a bankruptcy trustee appointed by the Court of Pescara. On February 2009 a takeover from a group named Delfino Pescara 1936 was finalized, with Deborah Caldora becoming the first woman to serve as chairman for the club. In the meantime, results did not improve significantly, and on March Giuseppe Galderisi was dismissed from the head coaching post, with Antonello Cuccureddu being appointed as new boss.

Rivalries

Pescara have many rivals across Italy. Pescara's regional rivals are Chieti and L'Aquila, however, they haven't faced either team since 2002 due to their financial troubles. Pescara share also notable rivalries with Marche clubs AC Ancona, Ascoli and Sambenedettese. During the 1970s, Pescara developed a strong rivalry with Lazio. Other rivalies include Napoli and Lanciano.

Pescara share two friendships with Vicenza and Messina. Pescara and Vicenza's friendships dates back to 1977 when both Ultras joined in alliance with each other. During the 2006-2007 Serie B season, Pescara and Vicenza celebrated 30 years of friendship together prior to their fixture. This friendship is one of the longest running in Italy and Europe.
