Genoa Cricket and Football Club, commonly referred to as Genoa, is a professional football club based in Genoa, Liguria, Italy, that competes in the Serie A. Established on 7 September 1893, it is Italy's oldest football team, and the oldest Italian football team still active to this day, with over 125 years of history.

As Genoa was a British club the first ever colours of the club were those of the England national football team. Not long into the club's footballing history, the kit was changed to white and blue stripes in 1899; the blue was chosen to represent the sea as Genoa is a port city. In 1901 the club finally settled for their most famous red and blue halves shirt, this gained them the nickname of rossobl├╣ together with Bologna, Cagliari and many more minor clubs.
