Frosinone History

Frosinone Calcio was founded in 1906 under the name Unione Sportiva Frusinate but didn’t begin any notable activity until 1928. The club has played the majority of its football in Serie C and Serie B but earned its first promotion to the Serie A in the 2015-16 season. They were relegated after just one season but, in 2019, were promoted once again. They then went back down and came back up last season and now look to establish themself as a Serie A side. 

Who Owns Frosinone

In 2003, the club was taken over by a group of entrepreneurs led by Maurizio Stripe, son of Benito, a former president of the club back in the sixties. 

Frosinone Manager

Frosinone’s current manager is Eusebio Di Francesco. Eusebio Di Francesco has managed many Italian clubs such as Virtus Lanciano, Pescara and Lecce. He then signed for Sassuolo and got them promoted from Serie B. He was sacked after a poor start to the next season but then brought back months later after the team didn’t improve. He was able to keep them up and avoid relegation. The next season they finished in 6th place. He then went to Roma, where he helped them finish 3rd and qualify for the Champions League. He then topped a group with Chelsea and Atletico Madrid and even knocked out Barcelona before losing to Liverpool. He was sacked the season after and went on a poor streak with clubs managing at Sampdoria, Cagliari, and Hellas Verona before ending up at Frosinone at the start of this season.

Frosinone 2023/24 Season Predictions

This season, we predict Frosinone will struggle and most likely go down. Their squad lacks quality, and they have a history of bouncing straight back down after being promoted. As much as we don’t want them to be relegated, we think they need some time before they are ready to compete in the Serie A.
