Entering League Football

  

SEASON 2016: FROM DEBUT TO PROMOTION

10th of April 2016 is another historical date in the club’s history as Rumori Calcio debuted in Estonian league football at Kalev Stadium artificial pitch, a venue used by the club only the Summer before in the first edition of the Rumori Cup. The debut against JK JalgpalliHaigla was a difficult one as Rumori Calcio managed to clinch the draw only on 84′ when midfielder Mart Naris (EST) scored the first ever goal in league football for Rumori Calcio.

Rumori Calcio had to wait 7 games before earning the first win in IV.Liiga: a round 1-6 win at Majandusmagister.
They closed the first round with barely 7 points and the 8th place out of 10 after 9 games.
With a renewed spirit and some new signings, the team managed to run other 6 wins in a row and clinch the 3rd place which was eventually secured in the last two games and earned a historical promotion to III.Liiga.

The Estonian Cup path was not less enthusing.

Contrary to previous year elimination at the first attempt, Rumori Calcio managed to reach the eight-of-finals after beating Merkuur Tartu (II.Liiga and Amateurs Cup holders) and Kernu Kadakas (III.Liiga) only to fall in front of top-flight club Tammeka Tartu (5-1) in the Southern city. Despite the full-time result, Rumori Calcio held Tammeka 0-0 for 40′ and managed to pull one back at the very end of the game. The author of the historical goal against a top-flight outfit was midfielder Roman Narnitski.

It’s mental in Tartu! Rumori Calcio makes history by going past a cup tie for the first time ever, courtesy of Christoph ‘Panzer’ Puschmann winner in the dying minutes of the extra-time second half!
