Cagliari Calcio was founded in 1910 as AC Padova. The team was refounded in 2014 after the sports title was awarded to Biancoscudati Padova for the 2014-2015 Series D season as a phoenix club. The old holder of the title was in the process of liquidation after it was expelled from 2014-2015 Lega Pro. The original Padova was renamed Football Padova in order to allow the new iteration of Padova to use the original name of the club, Calcio Padova in 2015. The white shield with the red cros where the name The White Shielded comes from is always present in their logo.
