Cagliari Calcio History
They didn’t win their first and only Scudetto until 1969–70, when they were headed by Gigi Riva, who is now the all-time best scorer for the Italian national team. The club was founded in 1920. Additionally, it was the first time a club from the region south of Rome had won.
The club’s best performance in Europe came in the UEFA Cup in 1993–1994; nevertheless, they were eliminated by Internazionale in the semi-finals. Cagliari’s colors are blue and red, just like the flag of the city that bears those colors. The flag of Sardinia is incorporated into the design of the club’s badge.
After capturing their lone and only league championship in 1970, Cagliari relocated their home stadium from the Stadio Amsicora to the Stadio Sant’Elia. It was renovated for Italy’s hosting of the 1990 FIFA World Cup, during which it played host to all of England’s group games. The ostensible reason for this was to isolate the notorious hooligans that were associated with the English squad on an island.
Due to disagreements with the municipal council on the rebuilding of the publicly owned stadium, the final home games that Cagliari played during the 2011–12 season were played at the Stadio Nereo Rocco in Trieste, which is located on the Italian Peninsula. The majority of the games for the next season were played by the team at the Stadio Is Arenas, which is located in the nearby municipality of Quartu Sant’Elena.
The league ruled that it was unsafe, therefore they were required to play their games behind closed doors until they finally left the stadium in April of 2013. Following the demolition of the Sant’Elia in 2017 to make way for the construction of a new stadium, the team relocated to the adjacent and temporary Sardegna Arena.
Throughout the course of their existence, Cagliari have used a number of distinct variations of their emblem, but the one constant has been the use of the flag of Sardinia. In most cases, the emblem will also feature the colors of the club; where there have been variations, the primary distinctions have been in the hue of the border or the shape.
Since June 2015, the emblem has included an escutcheon in the shape of “Old French” with red and blue halves, and the name of the club has been inscribed in white right above the flag of the island of Sardinia. As of the year 2015, the heads of the Moors have been rotated to the right for the very first time in order to conform to the modified version of the flag that was adopted in 1992.
