Juve Started With Stars

When and where did the trend with stars above club crests begin?

Juventus shirt and crest

Italian giants Juventus where the first team to adorn their shirts with a star when they decided to celebrate their tenth Scudetto (Serie A trophy) back in 1958.

Juventus won their 20th Scudetto in 1982 and are currently three short of their third star.

The two other Italian clubs to earn stars are Inter Milan (in 1966) and AC Milan (in 1979). Genoa have nine championships, but their last success was in 1924.
