Ternana Calcio: The Working Class Goes to Heaven
Terni is known as the steel city of Italy. Their football club, Ternana Calcio, have gone on incredible run this season. Under the management of Cristiano Lucarelli, Ternana have secured qualification to Serie B, in potentially record breaking style.
But the real story comes off the pitch. The history of their supporters, the Freak Brothers, is one that is fundamentally influential within the European Ultras scene. This is demonstrated by their friendships with St. Pauli and Atalanta, a connection supported by club legend Riccardo Zampagna.
Their new President, Stefano Bandecchi, who initially had a turbulent start at the club, has now built on the club's ethos, buying the rights to their matches, providing free access to anyone from around the world to watch Ternana.
This is truly a wonderful story of how within a club; players, management, supporters can all work in line to achieve unprecedented success.
