The team that "makes the whole world shake with fear"
In October 1900, the Bologna Football Club was born. Their nicknames are "I Veltri", which translates to "The Greyhounds", and "I Rossoblu", which means "The Red and Blues". On 20 March 1910 the club played their first official game and won 9–1! Stadio Renato Dall'Ara is the club’s home stadium and the largest sports centre in the city, with an impressive capacity of 38,500 fans. After their first season they were bumped up to the Group Veneto-Emiliano league for four seasons before joining the Northern League until World War I postponed football. After the war, in the 1924–25 season, Bologna won the Northern and National League championships; they were champs again in the 1928–29 season. Bologna FC was officially on the map in Italian football, and soon after the Italian football system instituted Serie A. Bologna became top-tier champions, participating in over seventy Serie A championships and winning over six Italian league titles. Despite their supremely strong start, the club spent some time sliding up and down the ranks and even a while in the third tier of the Italian football league. However, they always came back for more. They have won countless domestic and international championships and are regarded as one of the most resilient teams in Italian football.
Only in heaven do you play like that!
Though the club has produced countless memorable football moments, an all-time fan favourite occurred in the early 1960s. Bernardini joined the talented line-up on the team (including Pascutti, Bulgarelli, Fogli and Pavinato). However, the president of the club at the time was wary of the superstar team’s style of play – it was entertaining, he said, but was it effective? The team proved themselves with a spectacular season capped by a win against Modena that prompted the phrase "Only in heaven do you play like that!" Want to experience some heavenly football?
