All-New Logo After 10 Years - 1898-2018: Here Is The Full Italy Crest History

Update: With the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) having launched their all-new logo this week, planebafobal created a nice infographic showing off all Italy crests between 1898 and 2017.



After news emerged earlier this week of the Italy national team adopting a brand-new logo just in time for the 2018 World Cup, let's take a look at the federation's full crest history.

1910-1946




Starting off, the Italian national team wore a simple coat of arms badge on its jerseys, featuring the Savoy Cross in the center.

1945-1960




1945 saw the first 'own' logo introduced for the FIGC (Italian Football Federation), which did not appear on shirts (the Scudetto was used instead), but could be seen as an inspiration for the most recent versions of the badge.

1960-1966




1966-1984




1946-1982 (shirt)




After the war, the well-known 'Scudetto', worn by the Italian league winner to this day, started to feature on the Italy national team kits instead of the Savoy Cross.


1982-1991




Having updated the previous variant over the previous almost 40 years, a brand-new logo was created in the 1980s.

1991-2003




Another big update followed in 1991, with a design that's very much a child of its time.

2003-2006




In 2003, the FIGC introduced the logo which is more or less still used today.

2006-2017




With the 2006 World Cup in the bag, the crest was updated ever so slightly to accommodate the fourth star won in Germany. The swirl in the center was enlarged as well.

2018




The 2018 World Cup will see Italy adopt a totally new crest for the first time in more than ten years.
