Bologna FC 1909 is a club that has a proud history, even if the Bologna stats of today do not match up to their accomplishments in the past. Having been around for over 100 years, this club has made it to the top of Italian football in its history and is now looking to remain a member of Italy’s top flight for the foreseeable future.

Bologna FC General info

Bologna does hail from the city of Bologna in Italy, and the home matches on the Bologna schedule are played at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara. When it comes to Serie A betting stats, the track record of Bologna at home comes with mixed results. They are typically middle of a pack team at home, finishing no worse than 15th in points earned at home since the 2016-17 season.

Bologna FC History

This club was founded in 1909 and was one of the original members of Serie A in Italy. Interestingly enough, they were founded by Austrian Emilio Arnstein, not an Italian. The most successful period in their history was the 1920s and 1930s, in which they won five of their seven all-time Serie A titles.

Bologna FC Records

When it comes to record holders, Bologna FC still has its most notable individual record held by a player from its golden era of the 1930s. The all-time leading goal scorer for the club is Angelo Schiavio, who played for the club from 1922 to 1939. He banged in 251 career goals during Serie A matchups and other competitions for the team and is the only player in team history with over 200 career Bologna goals.

In terms of the record for the most appearances in club history, Giacomo Bulgarelli holds the record. He appeared 488 times for the club between 1959 and 1975. There are not currently any modern-day competitors for his club record.

Championship won by Bologna FC

There have been a total of seven times when Bologna FC has finished at the top of the Serie A standings. The most recent of those triumphs came in the 1963-64 season, with the club also winning Serie B twice and Serie C once. The club has also earned two Coppa Italia titles, with the most recent of those coming in the 1973-74 edition of the tournament.

Historical Events

This club has been remarkably consistent in staying at the top level of Italian football during its history. They have spent 75 of their 90 years of professional competition in Serie A, only dropping out of the top-flight four times. While the modern-day Serie A odds are unlikely to ever favor them to win the league, the consistent presence of Bologna in Serie A is something soccer fans have grown used to.

The best manager in the history of the club may just have been its first manager. When you look at the all-time Bologna stats, Herman Felsner won the first two league titles with the club in the late 1920s. He is also the longest-tenured manager in the history of Bologna FC, presiding from 1920 to 1931.

Currently, the club is trying something new by going with acclaimed Brazil defender Thiago Motta as their manager. He came into the job with just 50 matches of managerial experience, but the hope is that he will make Bologna betting favorites in Serie A one day.
