U.C. Sampdoria based in Genoa. The club was formed in 1946 from the merger of two existing sports clubs whose roots can be traced back to the 1890s, Sampierdarenese and Andrea Doria. Sampdoria currently compete in the Italian Serie A.
Sampdoria play at Stadio Luigi Ferraris and have won the scudetto only once in their history, in the 1991 season. The club has also won the Coppa Italia four times and one Italian Super Cup. Their biggest European success came when they won the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1990. They also reached the European Cup final in 1992.
The white, blue, red and black colours within the crest represent the clubs origins of a merger between two teams, Sampierdarenese and Andrea Doria, who wore respectively red/black and white/blue jerseys.
