Early times and Serie B

The club was founded in 1914 as Cosenza Calcio 1914 and enjoyed a long time in the professional leagues, spending several years in the Serie B and launching several famous players. They also won the Anglo-Italian Cup in 1983. During the 1980s and the 1990s, the Calabrian side barely missed promotion to the Italian top flight several times, most notably in 1989, when they ended with the same points than fourth-placed Cremonese and Reggina, but being not admitted to the promotion playoff as having the worst results of the three in head-to-head matches. In 1991–92, Cosenza lost promotion again, with a final fifth place only two points behind of Udinese.

Following these highs, the club successively started experiencing hard times, being ultimately excluded in June 2004 by the federation due to financial issues, leaving Cosenza suddendly without a club.

erie D times

Following the club's cancellation from the Italian football panorama, then Cosenza Mayor Eva Catizone started a group with the aim to form a new club, A.S. Cosenza F.C., that was successively admitted into Serie D as relocation of rival Calabrian side Castrovillari.

In 2004, the old Cosenza 1914 franchise was however admitted back into Serie D following a judicial sentence; this caused the city of Cosenza to have two different "rival" clubs into the same division. This lasted only one year, as Cosenza 1914 finally folded in 2005 and AS Cosenza FC then switched its denomination into A.S. Cosenza Calcio. However, the club missed promotion once again in 2006 and 2007, being defeated by Siracusa in the promotion playoffs both times.

Fortitudo Cosenza: back into professionalism

In 2007, AS Cosenza Calcio gave up its Serie D membership, but all the team players later joined new club Fortitudo Cosenza, born as relocation of Rende Calcio, a team from the neighbouring city of Rende which was relegated from Serie C2 in 2006-07 and moved to Cosenza soon after. The new club quickly managed to win the league, ensuring a place back into professionalism in 2008. Following this, the new club later renamed into the old historical denomination of Cosenza Calcio 1914 and is now playing Lega Pro Seconda Divisione with the aim to rise up the Italian football pyramid.
