Modena Football Club 2018 was founded in 1912 and refounded in 2018. It was a merge of two existing Modenese clubs, Football Club Audax Modena and l’Associazione Studentesca del Calcio Modena. The new colours were to be yellow and blue. On 5 November 2017, Modena was declared bankrupt after failing to pay player wages or stadium bills, which brought about a player strike and a stadium lockout. The club were officially excluded from “Lega Pro” on 6 November. The club was refounded for the 2018-2019 season and gained back promotion to Serie B in 2022. In 2022 a new crest was presented which took the place of the historic coat of arms. A stylised canary appeared in the crest, a symbol that has always been part of the club’s history and that was conceived to be recognised throughout the world. The bird in question, with its yellow plumage, is the team’s most iconic symbol, and it is precisely because of it that the club’s players are associated with the nickname canarini. The font of the logo, was taken from Modena Flash, a local newspaper from the 1960s.
