Lecce were formed in 1908, but they spent most of their history playing in lower leagues, despite being one of the oldest Italian clubs. They debuted in Serie A in 1985/86 season and since then, Lecce spent the most of their history fighting for promotion in Serie B and fighting against relegation in Serie A.
The team enjoyed their best run in the league in 1988/89 season, when they finished 9th. Their advancement through the ranks of Italian football was crippled by bankruptcies. The club dissolved for the first time during 1923/24 season, but they returned three years later. In 1929/30 season Lecce played in Serie B for the first time, but only one year later the club ceased activity again.
