Unione Calcio Sampdoria, commonly known as Sampdoria, is an Italian association football club based in Genoa.
The club was formed in 1946 from the merger of two existing sports clubs whose roots can be traced back to the 1890s, Sampierdarenese and Andrea Doria.
Sampdoria have won the Scudetto only once in their history, in 1990–91. The club has also won the Coppa Italia four times (1985, 1988, 1989, and 1994) and one Supercoppa Italiana. Their biggest European success came when they won the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1989–90. They also reached the European Cup final in 1991–92, losing the final 1–0 to Barcelona after extra time.
