Hellas Verona Football Club (commonly known simply as Hellas Verona, Verona, or Hellas within the city of Verona itself) is a professional Italian football club, based in Verona, Veneto. The team won the Serie A Championship in 1984–85.
On 18 May 2013, Verona finished second in Serie B and were promoted to Serie A after an 11-year absence. Their return to the top flight began against title contenders Milan and Roma, beating the former 2–1 and losing to the latter 3–0. The team continued at a steady pace, finishing the first half of the season with 32 points and sitting in sixth place—11 points behind the closest UEFA Champions League spot—and tied with Internazionale for the final UEFA Europa League spot. Verona, however, ultimately finished the year in tenth.
During the 2015–16 season, Verona hadn’t won a single match since the beginning of the campaign until the club edged Atalanta 2–1 on 3 February 2016 in a win at home; coming twenty-three games into the season. Consequently, Verona were relegated from Serie A.
