Their nicknames include I Rossoblu (the Red and Blue), Gli Isolani (the Islanders), I Sardi (the Sardinians) and Casteddu (the Sardinian name for Cagliari). From all the nicknames, it is clear that they are a club from the island of Sardinia, and in addition, they play in a colour combination of red and blue. They are at home in the Sardegna Arena, which provides 16,233 seats. Meanwhile, this is the temporary home of the club, which was originally at the Stadio Sant'Elia. However, it has been partially demolished with the intention of building a new stadium, which is scheduled for completion in 2021.
As already mentioned, this is a Sardinian club based in the city of Cagliari. It was founded in 1920, as Cagliari Football Club. Fifteen years later, however, it ran into financial problems and its activities were closed down. However, it was succeeded by a new club, Unione Sportiva Cagliari, in the same year, 1935.
The club played Serie A for the first time in the 1964/65 season, and in this promotion it also holds the record for the longest ever stay in the top competition, which was 12 seasons in a row until 1975/76. During this period, it also won its first and only premier league title to date, in the 1969/70 season. This season they were drawn by national striker Gigi Riva, who netted a total of 164 goals in 315 games during his time at the club. A season earlier they were also in the final of the Italian Cup.
As for the last decade of the club's tenure, at the start of the millennium they once again made it from Serie B to the top flight. They have been there since the 2004/05 season until today, but occupy mainly the second half of the league table.
