Hellas Verona Stats & History
Founded by high school students in 1903, Hellas mostly played against teams in their region in the early years. Hellas merged with rivals Verona in 1919, hence the name Hellas Verona.
When Serie A and Serie B were created in 1929, Hellas Verona debuted in Serie B. It took them 28 years to reach Serie A for the first time but their stay was brief.
Under coach Nils Liedholm, the Gialloblu returned to Serie A in 1968 and mostly played in the top flight until 1990. One of the interesting Hellas Verona team stats from this time is that they denied AC Milan the Scudetto in 1973. In the final matchday of the season, underdogs Verona defeated Milan 5-3 to end their title hopes.
