History

Genoa CFC was founded on 7 september 1893 by a number of English and is historically the oldest Club in the country. The Club was Genoa Cricket and Athletic Club. In 1896 came James Richardson Spensley to Italy and he is regarded as the founder of soccer. He founded a football Department at Genoa, and so that the Club was born. In the beginning there were only Englishmen involved at the Club, but because they do not have the correct level, the Italians will. In 1898 the Italian Football Federation was founded and organised a endagsturnering in order to determine the best team in Italy. Genoa won this tournament and so that they can call themselves the best club in the country. This Genoa was the first Club to win the League title. The next two seasons, as they also demonstrated once again the strongest in the country.

Competition intensifies

In 1901, Genoa had a first chance to make the title stand for another Club Milan Football & Cricket Club, AC Milan then. In 1902 they demonstrated once again to have the best features and also in 1903 and in 1904 became the champion. For seven years, so they won the title six times. From 1905, more and more teams joined matter in the League and lost the grip on Italian football. Clubs such as Juventus, Inter and Pro Vercelli stood up and proved to be the strongest. Justification Genoa lost their grip on the game, was that Union in 1908, has decided to allow only Italian players in the League. In Genoa played football primarily English football player, so the team was weakened. In 1909, this decision was reversed.
In 1912, the Englishman William Garbutt was appointed as coach of the Club. He gave the team new successes. In 1915, the competition was due to the outbreak of the first world war may not be clear, but the Italian Federation decided to award the title to Genoa anyway, because they were the strongest team in Italy. After the war, it took time before Genoa came back to the old level. Only in the 1922/1923 season showed the Club again to be the strongest. The title she extended a year later. This turned out so far, last time they got to call themselves champions of Italy.

Decline

In season 1924/1925 the Club started out as a champion, but a third title in a row was not there. In season 1933/1934 she also demoted to Serie B. A season later was promoted again, but it turned to Genoa was no longer in the Club before. Yet the team fight and they once again remained third with just three points behind the leader. In the season 1936/1937 there were still celebrating a success. The team won the Coppa Italia.
After the second world war, the Club was changing slowly status. Genoa was no longer the dominant Club in previous years, but became more and more in the background. They ranged from Serie A and Serie B.During the 1969/1970 season they also relegated to Serie C, a low point in the Club’s history. The following season, they were back in Serie B, where they once again went seasons long struggle for a place in Serie a. it worked sometimes, but Genoa were then always dangling down in the rankings.

Bribery scandal

In the 2000s, the club played football again in Serie B and fumbled at the Club. Between 1997 and 2003, there were three different owners and moisture also against relegation. In 2005 seemed to change over time. The Club were champions, but was accused of corruption. The vast bribery scandal also includes other clubs such as Juventus and Napoli. The Italian Federation punished Genoa and placed them at the bottom of the rankings in series B; as a result, they were relegated to Serie C; two seasons later, in 2007, the Club returned after twelve years in the top division of Italian soccer. Since then, they play football again in Serie A and the Club has stabilised. During the 2009/2010 season they also had to take part in the Europa League.
Genoa is back on the podium in Italy, but now they can once again achieve success as they took over a hundred years ago?
