- Apr 10, 2018 -

"Five-star Brazil" and "eight-star Dalian", we all know that these terms "star" represents the champion, five-star Brazil is Brazil's five-time World Cup champion. But rust stars aren't that simple. There are so many different reasons and designs that you may not have heard of!

When watching a football match, you will find that in some teams' shirts left chest, above the club emblem, there will be stars embroidered or printed. There are more than one kind of stars, and the number is not defined. What do they represent? In most cases, the stars represent champions. But in different countries, the number and meaning of the championship represented by a single star are different.

In football history, the first club team that embroidered stars on the chest was Serie A giant Juventus and embroidered with a golden star. In the 1957-58 season, the "Old Woman" won the 10th Serie A championship in the history of the team and became the first team to win the Serie A title 10 times.

At that time, according to Serie A's practice, the defending champion had the right to print the Serie A championship trophy on his jersey, the so-called "small shield."

At the suggestion of Juventus club owner Umberto Agnelli, the Serie A set up the "Sports Achievement Gold Star" award, which allowed teams that won the Serie A title 10 times to embroider Venus on the jersey. Then, at the beginning of the 1958-59 season, the first Venus was printed on the jersey of the Zebra Legion, above the emblem. When you get the 20th crown, the team can add a Venus to the jersey, and so on.

In the 2011-12 season, Juventus won the 30th Serie A title in the club's history. Due to the phone-phone scandal in 2006, the old women's Serie A titles in the 2004-05 and 2005-06 seasons have been cancelled by the Italian Football Association. Therefore, according to official data, the Serie A title for the 2011-12 season was Juventus' 28th league championship.

In the 2013-14 season, Juventus' total number of Serie A titles has officially reached 30. From the following year, the old woman can justify printing a third gold star on the chest of his jersey to symbolize its 30 Serie A champions in history.

As of now, the Zebra has won 33 Serie A titles. The second highest number of Serie A titles was Inter Milan and AC Milan. The two teams had 18 matches each, and they were only qualified to have one Venus printed on their chest. Inter Milan’s first Venus was acquired in 1966, while Milan’s first Venus was obtained in 1979.

The number of Serie A wins in the 4th place in Genoa is only 9 times. It is even not qualified for printing a Venus. But they also had experience with rust "stars."

Serie A was founded in 1929. Before that, Italy also had a national league. At that time, Genoa was a strong team in Italian football. They were the first Italian team to win the league championship. After that, Genoa made a request: to add a small shield on the jersey of the new season to celebrate his 9th title.
