The official team colours are canary yellow and blue. The team is nicknamed gialloblù (referring to the team colours) or, more commonly, canarini (canaries, referring to the sole shade of yellow).
The newly-founded football team included almost all the best players from the two former local clubs; this brought the first appearance for Mazara 1946, in 1996–1997, to be very successful, as the team managed to win hands down the Eccellenza league and return to Serie D. The first season for the new club in the Italian fifth-ranked division ended in a hard saving, just one point above the relegation places. The 1998–1999 campaign showed itself to be even harder, with Mazara ending the season with the same points as Sancataldese, therefore being forced to play a single-legged relegation playoff. The match, played in Termini Imerese, ended in a 1-0 win for the canarini, that so escaped relegation once again.
Affected by heavy financial struggles, Mazara however played their 1999–2000 Serie D season with a team mostly composed of young and unexperienced players, and were humiliatingly relegated to Eccellenza with just 8 points in 34 matches, obviously last-placed in the table.
Since then, Mazara experienced a declining time, even relegating to Promozione (7th-ranked division) in 2003–2004 after losing relegation playoffs to Licata. The club, with a new property, successfully returned to Eccellenza in 2005–2006 under coach Filippo Cavataio, a native of Mazara and a former centre back of several Serie C teams, most notably Trapani. In 2006–2007 the club, again coached by Cavataio, ended the regular season phase in an impressive third place, behind Alcamo and Carini, and were therefore admitted to the promotion playoff semifinal, where they eliminated Kamarat (from Cammarata) in a one-legged semifinal after a 0-0 tie, with Mazara moving to the next round because of their best placement in the regular season; another tie with second-placed Carini in the final however caused elimination for the canarini, who failed to achieve promotion also in the following season, finishing in fifth place after a long battle with Nissa and bitter rivals Trapani, who then defeated and eliminated Mazara in the following promotion play-off tournament, with all three matches (two in the regular season, plus a one-legged play-off match) being played behind closed doors.
The official team badge is instead reminiscent of the 1996 merge between the two local and rival clubs U.S. Mazara and S.C. Mazara 2000: both two characteristic elements of the respective original crests, respectively the canary bird and the seahorse, are present on it, along with the words "GS MAZARA 1946".
Mazara plays its home matches at Stadio Nino Vaccara, a small stadium located right along the local Mazaro river. Originally a dirt floor stadium without seats, Stadio Nino Vaccara undertook a massive restructuring in the early 2000s, with the implementation of a synthetic field and a numbered seats-only grandstand with a roof.
The stadium is divided into three sectors: the numbered grandstand, or tribuna centrale, with a capacity of 1,086; the curva (not really a curved sector, by the way), where the organized supporters sit down, with a capacity of 800; and the gradinata, in front of the grandstand, with a capacity of 1,380, usually opened only in exceptional cases.
Outside the stadium, right aside the main entrance, a number of murals are pictured depicting fishermen and fishing boats characteristic of Mazara del Vallo are also pictured.
