The club's best European performance was in the 1993–94 UEFA Cup, losing in the semi-finals to Internazionale.
The gap between Juventus and Napoli widened at the top of Serie A, as the Bianconeri won in Empoli and the Partenopei lost to Atalanta. Behind them, AC Milan snatched a crazy 4-3 victory over Sassuolo, whilst Inter More...
Currently, the badge features an "Old French"-shaped escutcheon with red and blue halves, with the club's name written in white just above the flag of Sardinia. The moors heads have, for the first time, been turned to the right as of 2015 so as to match the Sardinian flag after it was updated in 1992.
Following Massimiliano Allegri's departure to AC Milan, they have a new coach and will be looking to secure their position in the top flight for another season.
The next few years would see Cagliari return to mid-table anonymity, before a struggle in 1996–97 saw Cagliari relegated after losing a play-off to Piacenza. Once more they bounced back after just one year, but their next stay in Serie A lasted just two seasons.
Including only players with at least 100 appearances in the club, or an appearance in a FIFA World Cup edition
Cagliari is the regional capital of the Italian island of Sardinia (Sardegna). The town has a busy port and an interesting historic area. For more information on visiting Sardinia, see Italy Heaven's Sardinia guide. Not far from town, past the football stadium are some popular sandy beaches at Poetto.

Due to the fact that Cagliari are the main club from the island of Sardinia, they are nicknamed the "Isolani" ("Islanders").
Cagliari became the first ever out-right champions of Serie C during the 1951–52 season; prior to that in the league, the championship was shared amongst more than one team. They spent the 1950s from then on in Serie B, losing a promotion play-off in 1954. After descending to Serie C in the early 1960s, Cagliari's rise would be meteoric, eventually achieving promotion to Serie A in 1964.

After relegation, Cagliari lost a play-off for promotion the following season and would return to Serie A in 1979. Players like Franco Selvaggi, Mario Brugnera (a survivor of the 1970 team) and Alberto Marchetti ensured a respectable four-year stay in the top flight before a second relegation in 1983. The 1980s would then prove to be a darker time compared to the previous two decades with relegation to Serie C1 in 1987.
The 1970s would see a gradual decline (though were title contenders two years after their one and only Scudetto win). Cagliari were finally relegated in 1976, with Riva's career having effectively ended during that season.
Cagliari spent the next four seasons in Serie B, for most part in mid-table mediocrity. But 2003–04 would see the Rossoblu, led by Sardinian-born Gianfranco Zola, mount a successful promotion challenge and the following season saw Cagliari hold their own in Serie A with a respectable mid-table finish. The following season was a quiet one for the Sardinians, they obtained a good mid-table position (12th place).
Round six of action saw Inter and AC Milan slowed down as Juventus and Napoli keep up their good run and maintain the top two positions in Serie A. Roma lost to Torino and stay in mediocrity, whilst Lazio won again More...

Cagliari have had numerous presidents over the course of their history, some of which have been the owners of the club, others have been honorary presidents, here is a complete list of them:
Cagliari's coach, Pierpaolo Bisoli, was fired on 15 November 2010 and replaced by former Italy and Napoli coach Roberto Donadoni, who was himself sacked on 12 August 2011.
As Cagliari ready themselves for a trip to Sampdoria in round six, Marco Jackson remembers a meeting of the two, in which the Sardinians came into the game with huge ambitions. Expectation is a strange thing in More...
They won their only Scudetto in 1969–70, when they were led by the Italy national team's all-time leading scorer, Luigi Riva. The triumph was also the first by a club from south of Rome. Cagliari's colours are blue and red. The club's stadium is the 16,000 seat Stadio Sant'Elia in Cagliari. During the 2012–13 season, however, the team temporarily played their home games at the Stadio Is Arenas, in Quartu Sant'Elena.

Cagliari were founded in 1920 and have one league title to their name, won in 1970. Based on the island of Sardinia, they are usually a tricky team to visit and have spent most of the last decade in Serie A. Gianfranco Zola is a local hero having grown up on the island and he finished his playing career with Cagliari after leaving Chelsea.
Cagliari have had several different logo designs during their history, all of which feature the flag of Sardinia. Usually the badge also features the club colours; if there is a change, the main difference has been the colour of the border or the shape.
Located by the sea to the south east of the city, the stadium is easily reached by busses heading down the coast. In Cagliari, tickets are best bought in advance from Cagliari Point, Viale la Playa 15.
