About Our Club

The Athletics Baseball Bologna is based in Bologna, Italy.  The club was founded in 1984 and currently plays in the Italian Championship of Series A, as organized by the Italian Baseball Softball Federation.

The Athletics Bologna were born in the early 1980s on the initiative of some Bolognese baseball fans. The first teams played at the Barca Sports Center from 1984 through 1987.  Following 1987, the club moved to its current facility the Pilastro Sports Center.

The club quickly set up a large youth sector, also achieving good results. In 1992, the first team reached Serie B.  The club was dissolved after the 1992 season but was re-formed in 1993 by what is still the management team today.


In 1997, the senior team again reached the Serie B championship again.  It won the Serie B Italian Category Cup in 2004 and advanced in 2011 to the Serie A2 (baseball) championship. It qualified for the Serie A2 playoffs five times and reached the finals in 2013.


The club played at the Serie A2 level until moving up to Serie A1 for the 2021 season.  It competes in Group E of Serie A1.


The club’s Under 16 team became Italian Champion in 2009.


Aside from Serie A, the club supports teams in the Under-18, Under-15, Under-12, and Beginners categories.
