From Pergolettese to Pergocrema
The origins of the football in Crema go back to 1932 when U.S. Pergolettese was founded in Pergoletto, a suburb of the town.
In 1974 the club was renamed U.S. Pergocrema 1932.
In the Serie C2 2007-08 regular season the team finished first in Girone A, winning direct promotion to, the now called, Lega Pro Prima Divisione for the 2008–09 season. In that season Pergocrema obtain an historical 11th place, the best result of all times for the team.
In the 2009-10 Lega Pro Season, Pergocrema finished 15th and were forced to play in the relegation playoffs. They were matched up against 16th-placed Pro Patria, and survived by being the higher classified team after the 2-legged playout finished in a 3-3 aggregate tie.
The club generated paper-profit by selling Diego Manzoni for €500,000 in 2009 but directly in exchange for two players Francesco Pambianchi and Niccolò Galli for €250,000 each. In June 2011, one year before the bankruptcy, both players returned to Parma for €125,000 each but again in pure exchange deal, for Makris Petrozzi for €250,000.
From Pizzighettone to Pergolettese
Pergolettese was promoted to 2013–14 Lega Pro Seconda Divisione in 2013.
