Unione Sportiva Real Palemmo 1946 is a Hattrick football club from Palermo, Sicilia. They were founded on June 7, 2007 following disbandment of a Milan-based X.2244 club and reached promotion on their second season in the league. On February 2, 2008 they mathematically ensured a second consecutive promotion, being crowned league champions one week later. They joined VIII.1320 in season 35, and were crowned league champions in season 39, this being followed by a second consecutive promotion from VII.599 division. In season 43 they became VI.383 and were later promoted to V.170 via playoffs. After two consecutive relegations, the club returned into VI division in season 55.

Real Palemmo are proud of their Sicilian heritage, and release press announcements solely in Italian and Sicilian. Their official colours are pink and black, and play their home matches at Arancina Bridge (formerly known as Comunale Marco Materazzi), which was expanded to a capacity of 18,000, following their recent second promotion. The venue capacity was successively expanded by 8,000 more seats during season 3, and again of 10,000 more at the end of season 39, bringing it to a capacity of 36,000. It was successively expanded to 49,911.
