In 1945–46 season Legnago won its Serie C group, but lost the promotional play-off to get the access to Serie B championship. The club played in the IV Serie (now called Serie D) during three different periods: from 1952 to 1954, then from 1971 to 1980, and from 1993 to 2002.

In the 1971–72 Serie D season, Legnago ended the championship in second place and gained access to the promotion playoffs, then lost 1–0 to Vigevano. The match was played at Stadio Mario Rigamonti in Brescia in front of 7,000 spectators.

In the season 1994–95, Legnago ended in third place behind Treviso and Triestina with Gigi Manganotti as manager. On 30 November 1997 Legnago signed the record number of 1,200 spectators attending the match versus Trento.

After a long period in Serie D, the club relegated to Eccellenza in 2002 and Promozione one year later.

In the 2006–07 season Legnago won the Promozione league and gained promotion to Eccellenza Lombardy.

In the 2009–10 season Legnago won the Eccellenza Lombardy league and gained promotion to Serie D.
