Special jersey to celebrate 120 years of Andrea Doria

The roots of our uniqueness lie in our origins. Respect, tradition, belonging. The hereditary legacy of Unione Calcio Sampdoria has very clear roots, which is why we want to continue to honour it. Having paid homage to Società Ginnastica Sampierdarenese, one of the two clubs that merged to form Sampdoria, the Blucerchiati now plan to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the foundation of the football section of their other parent: Società Ginnastica Andrea Doria.

In the team’s contest with Milan on Sunday, the Blucerchiati will take to the field with the unmistakable blue and white quartered strip designed in 1900 for Andrea Doria. It is a name, that of the Genoese admiral who lived from 1466 to 1560, which remains closely linked to Genoa and its history, not only on a sporting level but also on a political and social, artistic and cultural one.

It was Andrea Doria who commissioned the renovation of Villa del Principe and its park, the enchanting setting for our shoot to unveil the Macron jerseys.  A set number of the limited edition jerseys will be on sale online at Sampdoria Point from tomorrow. They will also be available at Macron stores. The jerseys worn in the match by the players will be auctioned on CharityStars as part of the charity project Samp for People, with proceeds going to the Gaslini Institute, a research hospital in Genoa.
