One of the teams struggling for survival in the top tier of the Italian league, Serie A is Genoa CFC. The club based in Genoa, Liguria is a professional football club and currently occupies the 17th position on the league table.

Genoa is being coached by former Italian player Davide Nicola. The club has three nicknames such as Il Grifone (The Griffin), I Rossoblù (The Red and Blues) and Il Vecchio Balordo (The Old Fool).

The club is Italy’s fourth oldest football team and the oldest active Italian football team due to the fact that it was founded on 7 September 1893. With over 125 years of activity and long history, Genoa has won the Italian Championship nine times.

Genoa’s first title came at the inaugural championship in 1898 and their most recent was in 1923–24. The club has also won the Coppa Italia once. Historically, Genoa is the fourth most successful Italian club in terms of championships won.

The club began experiencing early successes the godfather of Italian sports journalists Gianni Brera started showing love for the team by, who, despite having been born nowhere near Genoa, always declared himself a supporter of the team. Brera went as far as creating the nickname Vecchio Balordo (Old Fool or Cranky Old One) for Genoa.

Football in Italy stepped up a level with the creation of the Italian Football Federation and the Italian Football Championship. Genoa competed in the first Italian Championship in 1898 at Velodrome Humbert I in Turin. They defeated Ginnastica Torino 2–1 in their first official game on 8 May, before winning the first championship later that day by beating Internazionale Torino 3–1 after extra time.

Genoa returned for the following season, this time with a few changes; the name of the club was altered to Genoa Cricket & Football Club, dropping the Athletic from its name. A change in shirt color was also in order, as they changed to white and blue vertical stripes; known in Italy as biancoblu.

Genoa won their second title on a one-day tournament which took place on 16 April 1899, by beating Internazionale Torino 3–1 for the second time. On their way to winning their third consecutive title in 1900 and also beat local rivals Sampierdarenese 7–0; a winning margin which would not be bettered by any team in the league until 1910.
