The 2003/04 season for Fiorentina was less about the silverware and more about overcoming adversity, restructuring, and laying the groundwork for future success. It represented a rebirth and was the foundation upon which the club would build in the subsequent years.
Relegation and Refounding: In 2002, Fiorentina, then known as "ACF Fiorentina", were relegated from Serie A and faced severe financial difficulties. These problems led to the club's bankruptcy and subsequent relegation to Serie C2 (the fourth tier of Italian football) for the 2002/03 season. However, due to restructuring and the acquisition of a new owner, Diego Della Valle, the club was re-established as "Florentia Viola" and was admitted to Serie B, the second tier of Italian football, for the 2003/04 season.
Performance in Serie B: Under the management of Emiliano Mondonico and later replaced by Sergio Buso, Fiorentina aimed to make an immediate return to Serie A. The team performed well throughout the season, ultimately achieving their goal. They finished in sixth place, which qualified them for the play-offs. Fiorentina won the play-offs and secured promotion to Serie A.
Key Players: The squad included notable players such as Enrico Fantini, who was crucial in the play-offs, and Angelo Di Livio, a veteran who provided experience and leadership. Christian Riganò was another important player for the Viola, contributing significantly to their offensive play.
Club Identity and Support: Despite the setbacks and the challenges faced due to financial turmoil, the support from the fans remained strong. The rebranding of the club as "Florentia Viola" and the immediate push for promotion showcased the resilience of both the club and its supporters.
Aftermath: The promotion at the end of the 2003/04 season was the first step in Fiorentina’s journey back to becoming a stable and competitive force in Italian football. In the following years, under the leadership of the Della Valle brothers and with the contributions of players like Luca Toni and later on, Adrian Mutu, Fiorentina re-established themselves in Serie A and even returned to European competitions.
