On 5 July 1911, several gymnasts from Udinese led by Luigi Dal Dan later founded the Udinese AC, which joined the FIGC. During this initial period, Udinese only took part in regional competitions, Udinese failed to reach the national stage and were always eliminated at the Veneta Eliminatoria.

On 24 August 1923, AS Udinese separated from AC Udinese Friuli, and the club was forced to regulate the budget by an autonomous council. Fortunately, all debts were paid by President Torso Del Alessandro through the sale of some of his paintings so that Udinese could join Division II.
