VIDEO: Watch wild celebrations as Palermo promoted back to Serie B as fans party in streets with explosion of fireworks | The Sun

ITALIAN side Palermo celebrated promotion back to Serie B in spectacular fashion.

Palmero ran out as winners of the two-legged play-off final against Padova for promotion to Italy's second division, sparking wild celebrations which included fireworks.

The Sicily-based club have faced a tough few years which has seen them drop all the way down into Serie D, mainly due to financial reasons.

The club has seen sanctions and point deductions from the Italian FA and were nearly relegated from Serie B due to financial irregularities in 2019.

However, the club's dire situation came to a head when they submitted an invalid insurance policy for the 2019/20 Serie B season, forcing the Italian FA to exclude them from all professional leagues.

A month later the club were readmitted as a phoenix club into Serie D, and they won promotion to Serie C in their first season.

The Eagles beat Padova 1-0 in both games of their Serie C play-off final against them.

The club's trophy haul consists of five Serie B titles and a single Serie C title.
