Pagliuca Gianluca


Did you Know?

U.C. Sampdoria won their first ever Serie A title, thanks to a remarkable season for a team playing on its absolute peak. Gianluca Vialli was the league top scorer on 19 goals, and Roberto Mancini, Attilio Lombardo, goalkeeper Gianluca Pagliuca plus centre half Pietro Vierchowod were also instrumental in Sampdoria’s success story.

Things to Know:

During his  whole career, but especially with Sampdoria, Pagliuca was very recognizable for his colorful fancy shirts. He was sponsor by Reusch first and then by Puma. During his period with Sampdoria his sponsor Reusch provided him shirts and gloves but since the team’s supplier was Asics, he had to hide the Reusch’s logo showing Asics’s logo on chest like it happened with this shirt.

Did you Know?

In 1994, Zenga transferred to Sampdoria where he played for two seasons. In the season 1995-1996 the team was once again condemned to midfield mediocrity, despite the services of super striker Enrico Chiesa, who netted 22 goals in just 27 appearances. Sven-Göran Eriksson continued with an attacking style of play, leading to Sampdoria scoring 59 goals in 34 matches, only bettered by champions Milan and Lazio. The backside was the many conceded goals it led to, with even relegated Torino having a better defensive record than the Genua team. Playmaker duo Clarence Seedorf and Christian Karembeu had great seasons, both compensating for the losses of Jugović, Lombardo and David Platt in the summer. The duo caught the attention of Real Madrid, and moved to Spain, with Karembeu staying put until the end of the 1996-97 season.

He was loaned to Lazio in exchange for Simone Inzaghi in January 2005, but failed to impress with the biancazzurri and returned to Sampdoria at the end of the season.

Things to Know:

U.C. Sampdoria returned to Serie A after a four year-absence, and immediately re-established itself as a team on the top half of the domestic championship. Goalkeeper Francesco Antonioli offered crucial experience, but apart from him did the bulk of the squad play in the 2002-03 Serie B, with top goalscorers Fabio Bazzani and Francesco Flachi quickly adjusting themselves to the higher pace of Serie A. Midfielders Sergio Volpi and Angelo Palombo also stood out. Right back Aimo Diana even earned a call-up to the national team following his performances.

Cassano Antonio

Things to Know:

During the 2008-2009 season, Cassano confirmed to have temperamentally improved, also becoming vice-captain for the team behind Angelo Palombo. After the January signing of Giampaolo Pazzini from Fiorentina, Cassano managed to form a fruitful striking partnership with the former Viola forward, that was praised by both media and Sampdoria supporters, and led club chairman Riccardo Garrone to compare it with striking duo of Gianluca Vialli and Roberto Mancini that led Sampdoria to win their only Scudetto to date, an opinion that was later shared also by both Vialli and Mancini. Cassano scored 12 goals in Serie A and helped Sampdoria to reach the Coppa Italia final that season, scoring a goal in the semi-final against the Serie A Champions, Inter. In the final, Sampdoria were defeated by Lazio in a penalty shoot-out, with Cassano missing the first penalty.

120th Anniversary Sampierdarenese Special Shirt 


Match Worn Unwashed Shirt


Andersen Joachim 


Did you Know?

Joachim Andersen wore this shirt in the first half of the game against Atalanta on March 10th 2019. This shirt was exclusively worn by the team in this game only. Sampdoria played the game with special-edition kit that celebrated the 120th anniversary of the foundation of one of its parent clubs. In March 1899, the football section of the Sampierdarenese Gymnastics Society was founded, which would later merge with another club, Andrea Doria, to create Sampdoria. The iconic and timeless Sampdoria shirt design was created then, combining the blue shirts worn by Andrea Doria and the white, red and black midsection of Sampierdarenese. Inspired by the Sampierdarenese design, the special Sampdoria shirt is white with a red and black ring and a very traditional collar. It does not feature a club emblem, while the sponsor appears very far down on the front, below the horizontal stripe. Just like with Sampierdarenese’s kits, black shorts and socks will complete the uniform. Shirts were limited to 200 units, all numbered. The first 100 numbered shirts (001 to 100) were issued and worn by the players only. Shirts numbered from 101 to 200 were sold to the official club’s store. The real worn ones were auctioned instead to support the “Gaslini Hospital” in Genova.

Things to Know:

Apparently the quality of name sets and numbers on the back was not really the best. As you can see from pictures beside and below most of the players lost name’s letters and numbers during the game. In particular Joachim Andersen lost the the letter “N” of the name and the lower part of number 3 partially got damaged during the game. You can clearly see it from the screenshots of the game. The letter “N” was almost fallen during the last minutes of the first half and the lower part of the number was almost fallen. The letter was probably lost in the kit room after the player took the shirt off and the number was fixed by Sampdoria’s kit man with the heat press before the shirt was auctioned.

Vieira Ronaldo


Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Ronaldo Vieira during the game against Parma which took place in Parma on May 5th 2019. This is a very special shirt used by the team only once. To celebrate the historic twinning between the fans, Parma Calcio 1913 and U.C. Sampdoria “exchanged” their shirts. The teams wore the special kits only in this game, thanks also to the collaboration of technical sponsors Errea and Joma and both clubs. The fans of Unione Calcio Sampdoria and Parma Calcio 1913 have had a friendship for nearly 30 years. The bond between the two clubs began in the 1990/91 season, during Parma’s first-ever season in Serie A. Parma’s two organised supporter’s clubs, ULTRAS Tito Cucchiaroni and Boys Parma, soon built up a good relationship with the Sampdoria fans – but it was a special banner that sealed the special bond. During Parma’s away trip to Marassi, the fans unveiled the message: “For you Europe, for you glory, for Sampdoria the Scudetto”. As it happened, Samp did win the league that year, with Parma finishing fifth. It was the first in a long line of gestures between the two sets of fans. So Sampdoria played this game in a special kit featuring Parma’s signature “crociata” design, while Parma wore a yellow and blue “blucerchiati” jerseys to honor the classical Sampdoria’s colored band of its jersey. The initiative, named “Blucrociati – not just colours”, mixed the salient features of two of the most iconic Italian kits of all times, though each team still played in their usual colors, to preserve the identity of the two clubs. The “Crociata” jersey worn by Sampdoria was produced by Joma and has seen the two arms of the cross finished in the four colors normally seen on Doria jerseys. Positioned under the traditional club logo there is the lettering commemorating the match. On the bottom of the shirt there is a special numbered tag (XXX/400) with match details on. The jerseys worn by the players in the game were put up for auction. Proceeds from sales of the Parma shirts were donated in full to the Istituto Gaslini in Genoa, while proceeds from the Sampdoria shirts went to Parma Children’s Hospital. Limited editions (400 shirts of Sampdoria’s kit) of both shirts were also available for fans to buy in both club online stores for 99 Euro. Of course match worn shirts had some slight differences….
