FIRST STEPS IN ESTONIAN FOOTBALL SYSTEM: THE RAHVALIIGA DEBUT

In Summer 2015, Rumori Calcio approached the Estonian league system by entering the Rahvaliiga (non-league) organized by the Estonian FA. They competed in B-level drawn in a group with JK Roosad Pantrid, the 2014 Rahvaliiga Champions.

In the same season, history was made when Rumori Calcio played his first-ever 11-a-side official club football game in an Estonian Cup tie (1/64) against JK Poseidon from Pärnu on the 28th of June 2015.

A report of this historical game is available here. Both goals for Rumori Calcio were scored by former professional player, Englishman Richard Barnwell, being first-ever goal in club football and first-ever brace in club football for our colours.

In Autumn 2015, the club decided to move the team to the Estonian IV.Liiga, the lowest of 6 tiers of league football in Estonia. A team in Rahvaliiga was maintained with partly old players and mostly new recruits.
