Società Sportiva Calcio Napoli, simply referred to as SSC Napoli or Napoli, is an Italian football club based in Naples. The club was founded in 1926 after a merger with Naples Foot-Ball & Cricket Club and Internazionale Napoli. In the 1980s, for the first time, Napoli became successful, mostly thanks to great football player Diego Maradona. They won the League title twice, the UEFA Cup and the Coppa Italia. The following years Napoli struggled financially and were relegated several times. In 2004 the club was declared bankrupt. They were not allowed to use their old name and therefore changed their name to Napoli Soccer, and were placed in the Italian Serie C1. When they were promoted to Serie B, they bought back their name, restoring the clubs’ history. After one season in Serie B, they were promoted to the Serie A again.
SSC Napoli have played all of their home matches at the Stadio San Paolo ever since it opened in 1959. The stadium has been renovated 3 times. The present capacity is 60,240, making it the third largest football stadium of Italy.
The recent years, Napoli has been a stable club in the top-tier of the Serie A, finishing 2nd the past two seasons. Will they achieve to beat great club Juventus next season? With new head coach Carlo Ancelotti and players such as Lozano - coming from PSV for 42 million euro - Dries Mertens and Kalidou Koulibaly they will definitely give it their best shot.
