Fabulous Pienne shirt in size XL with no pulls or marks.
This tiny club from the Abruzzo region of Italy made footballing history in the season of 1996/97 when against all the odds they made it to Serie B and were subsequently immortalised in the excellent book by Joe McGinniss – ‘The Miracle of Castel Di Sangro’!
After two unforgettable for a number of reasons in Serie B, the inevitable relegation occurred and the now more famous team from the small town with a population of just 5000 with a near the Adriatic Sea went down to Serie C1.
However, there was one more highlight to come, in 1999 Castel Di Sangro reached the Quarter Final of the Coppa Italia losing to Inter Milan.
Despite going into receivership in 2005, the club re-formed under the new name A.S.D Castel Di Sangro and now play in the Italian Amateur Leagues.
