Torino FC Stats & History
In 1906 Internazionale Torino and Football Club Torinese merged to form Foot-Ball Club Torino. Torino first participated in the Prima Categoria, then the first division of Italian soccer, in 1908. They finished in fourth in their first season and nearly won the league in 1915 but finished in second.
In 1927, Torino won their first Scudetto with the “Trio of Wonders” of Julio Libonatti, Adolfo Baloncieri and Gino Rossetti. However, the title was revoked later that year. Next season, the trio dominated the Torino FC stats once again and they won their first official league title.
In 1936, Torino won their first Coppa Italia trophy and finished third place in the league. The best period in club history was during the 1940s. Nicknamed “Grande Torino”, the 1940s side won five league titles, including a league and Coppa Italia double in 1943. One of the most impressive Torino FC stats is the fact that they were the first team to achieve this feat.
Their success was abruptly ended by an air disaster in 1949, which claimed the lives of the entire team and reserves. In the wake of the tragedy, the team declined and Torino were relegated to Serie B for the first time in 1959. However, their stay only lasted one season and they were promoted in what would become a 30-year spell in Serie A.
