    FAQ for UC Sampdoria

Where does the name "Sampdoria" come from?

Sampdoria was founded in 1946 by the merger of two old Genoese clubs: Sampierdarenese(Sampierdarena is a working-class quarter of Genova) and Andrea Doria (the name is from a famous medieval Genoese admiral). Also the colours became from those teams: Red and black from Samp, blue and white from Doria.

What does "blucerchiati" mean?

Sampdoria is a fusion of Sampierdarenese 1891 (red and black) and Andrea Doria 1895 (blue and white) so you have SAMP-DORIA 1946. The colours are united in a circle on the shirt, so that's where you have the word "blucerchiati" which translates as "blue circled".
