Genoa CFC: Italy's oldest football team
Genoa CFC enjoys the distinction of being the first professional football club to have been founded in Italy - all the way back in 1893. Aside from a couple of blips, the team has always played in Serie A or B and, having won several championships early on in its career, remains one of the most successful clubs ever in Italian football. Genoa CFC tickets are available now to buy or sell on StubHub.
Admire the talent of the Genoa CFC squad
Founded in 1893, Genoa CFC immediately proved itself a force to be reckoned with by winning the inaugural Serie A in 1898. Although the majority of its successes were enjoyed during its first thirty years, it still maintains its formidable reputation and has been a fixture of Serie A for well over half of its history. Notable Genoa CFC players have included Domenico Criscito, Tomas Skuhravy, Branco and Giandomenico Mesto - plus, right at the beginning, James Richardson Spensley. This Englishman is now considered to have been one of the founders of Italian football and Genoa CFC was actually an English club when it was first formed. The original colours of the club were the same as those of the English national team, but today's Genoa CFC badge is based more on the city's coat of arms. Tickets for Genoa CFC playing at home will have you watching the team take to the pitch in their iconic red-and-blue-striped shirts.
Join Genoa CFC fans from across the world
The Genoa CFC stadium is one of the oldest Italian football venues, having been the home of the club since 1911. With the fans placed very close to the pitch, the noise and excitement in the stands is incredibly atmospheric and the view from certain positions unparalleled. The main rivals of Genoa CFC are US Sampdoria Calcio, who also play in the same stadium; the competition between the two teams is known as the Derby of the Lantern and is said to be the most important in all of Italy. Another major rivalry is that with AC Milan, while the club has historically been on friendlier terms with others including SSC Napoli, Torino and AS Roma. With a wealth of supporters throughout the country but also overseas, thanks to the city's position as an important port, Genoa CFC players are cheered on wildly at all their matches. It really is a historic and atmospheric football experience without comparison - and with Genoa CFC tickets available to buy or sell on StubHub, you too can take your place in the stands.
