On September 7, 1893, Charles De Grave Sells, S. Blake, G. Green, W. Riley, D.G. Fawcus, Sandys, E. De Thierry, Jonathan Summerhill Senior and Junior and the British diplomat Sir Charles Alfred Payton started Genoa Cricket & Athletic Club. Since the club were set up to represent England abroad, the club's shirts were originally white, the same colour as the England football team's shirt. As it was originally set up as private club, Italians were not allowed into the team. The first field for the club was the Piazza d'Armi of the Campasso. Between 1893 and 1895, the club played cricket against the crews of various British ships that docked in the harbour from time to time. In 1898, some of the club's early football matches were against the HMS Clementine crew and the crew of HMS Revenge. In 1896, Mr. James Richardson Spensley, considered to be the founder of Italian football, arrived and set up the football team. He played as a goalkeeper for a while, but wasn't particularly good. In 1897, not unreasonably, Italian players were allowed to join and a new field was found. The following year, Genoa played their first friendly game, losing 1-0 to a team made up of players from International Torino and FBC Torinese. On May 8, 1898, Genoa became the first ever Italian champions. In 1899, the club changed its name to Genoa Cricket & Football Club, dropping 'Athletic' from its name. The shirt also changed, from white, to white and blue vertical stripes. On April 16 of that year, the club won the Italian title again. Genoa would do so again in 1900. In 1901, the club changed strip again to its famous red-navy halves and therefore became known as the Rossoblu. From 1902, Genoa were to win three titles in a row, after setting up the II Categoria Tournament, which was won by the reserve team in its first season (1904).

In 1915, the club was to win its first championship title for eleven years, which they won again in 1923 and 1924 (their last to date). The club remained among the best Italian teams for the next 20 years, winning the Coppa Italia in 1937, which was to be its last major trophy. World War II affected drammatically the entire Italian football movement, but Genoa did not recover as well as other clubs. Between the '50s and '90s, through cashflows and irregularities, Genoa slowly declined, with few notable seasons (two Coppa delle Alpi in 1962 and 1964) and more and more frequent descents into Serie B. Genoa even experienced their first relegation to Serie C in 1970. In 1989 Genoa experienced a resurrection that lead to promotion to Serie A and, in 1991, Genoa managed a fourth-place finish in the top division, and a subsequent UEFA Cup semifinal the following year. In doing so, they became the first Italian team to win at Liverpool's Anfield Road. In 1996 the club became the last winners of the Anglo-Italian Cup by beating Port Vale F.C.. However, the glory did not last and Genoa returned to Serie B in 1995 where they played for the past ten years, their longest spell there to date, whilst experiencing deep financial problems. Backed by a new club organisation, in 2005 Genoa finally won the second division, achieving promotion to Serie A. Yet, on July 27, 2005, Genoa was arbitrarily placed last (hence condemned to relegation in Serie C1) by the Disciplinary Committee of the Italian football federation for an alleged fraud in the last 2004-05 match against Venezia, which had been won 3-2 and had ensured promotion. On August 8, 2005, the appeal against the decision was finally turned down by the Italian federation and Genoa are now playing the current season in Serie C1. In the recent 2008-2009 championship Genoa started out with a defeat in the sicilian away match with Catania but was then graced with the comeback of argenitinian forward Diego Milito a talent which played with Genoa in second division and was then sold after the team had been relegated to third division despite finishing at the division's top due to an alleged combine. Milito was glad to come back to Genoa and play in Italy's Serie A and greatly contributed to a very successful season which saw the red and blue genoese griffins finishing fifth and securing a UEFA placement, while winning both derbies against the striped Sampdoria "cousins" and managing to defeat teams like Roma, Milan and Juventus. Genoa could have aimed even higher, but an unlucky streak of defeats with Lazio and Bologna right after having won against Juventus quashed their hopes for a Champions League spot. Having sold both Milito and midfield Thiago Motta to Inter Genoa has now 40 millions euro to invest in suitable replacements to maintain a high standing in the coming Serie A season and to compete successfully in the UEFA cup.
