Not exactly considered the biggest club in Italian football, Atalanta are not exactly highlighted by their notoriety. This is a club with a highly loyal set of supporters and a few rivalries which are not considered the fiercest ones in the country.
The likes of Verona, Fiorentina, Torino and the clubs from the ‘big four’ will, of course, generate the biggest interest. However, Atalanta’s biggest rivals are actually Brescia. The Derby of Lombardy is a game that pits two centers of industrial Lombard region. The sense of pride and belonging is what fuels the animosity between the two clubs and their respective set of supporters in fight for local supremacy.
The story of Atalanta’s origins belong into a movie. The Orobici were founded in 1907 by a group of Swiss students. Moreover, the very process of the club’s establishment occurred in the gym of Liceo Classico, a prominent public high school in Bergamo.
They play in blue and black shirts and have a silhouette of a goddess on their logo. The Goddess is actually another nickname they are known for. The club is also referred to as Regina delle provinciali which basically translated into ‘queen of the province’. The moniker marks the fact Atalanta are by far the biggest and most consistent club outside the regional capital – the city of Milan.
Atalanta play their home games at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia in front of 21,300 people.
