Torino Football Club 1906 is an Italian football club based in the Italian city of Turin. They currently feature in the Italian Serie A and have been the champions of Italy on seven occasions and are the fourth most successful club in Italian football.

Football Club Torino was founded on December 3,1906 and took part in the world’s first international competition, Torneo Internazionale Stampa Sportiva, in 1908 and won their ever scudetto in the 1927-1928 season.

But Torino’s best ever spell in their history came during the Grand Torino period of the 1940s. Employing a 4-4-2 system, the Grand Torino side won 5 consecutive Italian Serie A from 1943 to 1949 (no league fictures were played in 1944 and 1945 due to World War II) and created several record in Italy including most home wins in one season and most consecutive seasons undefeated at home.

But the Superga air disaster destroyed the Grand Torino side. On May 4,1949, the airplane carrying the side from Turin to Lisbon where they were supposed to play a friendly match with Benfica crashed against the Basilica of Superga, killing almost all the players and managers.

Torino have never come close in repeating the Grand Torino days although they did win the Italian Serie A title in the 1975-1976 season.

At the end of the 2004-2005 season, Torino gained promotion from the Italian Serie B to the Italian Serie A but were expelled due to financial irregularities. However a new club under the name Torino FC was formed and under the ownership of Urbano Cairo climbed up the Italian club football steps and are now in the Serie A.

Torino play their home matches at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin which can host 27,500 people. They bear the nickname I Granata (The Maroons) and Il Toro (The Bull).

Torino’s main rivals are Turin’s other and bigger club Juventus.
