Unione Sportiva Salernitana 1919, commonly referred to as Salernitana, is an Italian football club based in Salerno, Campania. Salernitana returned to Serie A in 2021, after a break of 23 seasons, having finished second in Serie B. Previously in 2015 "I Granata" were promoted to Serie B, having finished first in Lega Pro Prima Divisione - Girone C. The club is the legitimate heir of the former Salernitana Calcio 1919 and there is a sports continuity also with the former Salerno Calcio in the 2011–12 season which restarted from Serie D rather than from Terza Categoria due to Article 52 NOIF of FIGC.
The club – named Salerno Calcio – was promoted to Lega Pro Seconda Divisione as it re-obtained the original name of U.S. Salernitana 1919. It was promoted to Lega Pro Prima Divisione the following season.
The Stadio Arechi is a multi-purpose stadium in Salerno, Italy. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home stadium of U.S. Salernitana 1919.
The stadium holds 37,200 . First official match was played in 1990.
The stadium was built to replace the former structure that was no longer fit to host the growing audience of the team. The first match hosted in the new venue was Salernitana-Padova. In this game the home team was held to a draw by the visitors. Three times the "Arechi" was honoured by the visit of the national team. Many parking spaces are available outside the structure.
