Unione Sportiva Triestina is an Italian football club based in Trieste, in the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. The club was formed in 1918 and currently plays in the Italian Serie B, having returned there in 2002 after 11 seasons in Serie C and Serie D. Its last Serie A stint ended in 1958. In 1994, the team was forced to fold, because of financial insolvency, and was re-founded by Giorgio Del Sabato. The team's colours are red and white.

The famous coach Nereo Rocco, a native of Trieste, was a former player and manager for Triestina from the 1930s to the 1950s.

In the 2005/2006 season, Triestina changed its manager five times. The list include the tandem Alessandro Calori-Adriano Buffoni, Pietro Vierchowod, caretaker Francesco De Falco, youth team coach Vittorio Russo and Andrea Agostinelli.

In addition, Triestina's owner Flaviano Tonellotto was forced to resign on February 1, 2006 by the magistrates because of a pending court procedure for bankruptcy, and his wife Jeannine Koevoets was named to replace him at the helm of the club. However, Tonellotto was successively ordered to leave the association because of financial troubles. The magistrates named Francesco De Falco as caretaker chairman with the idea of finding somebody interested to buy the club. Curiously, in the 2005/2006 De Falco, a player for Triestina in the 80's, covered three different roles in the club: director of football, manager and now chairman. In April 2006 the team was purchased by the Fantinel family, owners of a wine company in the region.
