Unione Sportiva Cremonese is an Italian football club, based in Cremona. The club was founded in 1903. Cremonese played the 2005/2006 season in Serie B, having won Serie C1/A the previous season. However, in the 2005/2006 Serie B campaign, Cremonese came out twenty-first, being therefore relegated to Serie C1 for the next season. It currently plays in Lega Pro Prima Divisione.
Their last appearance in Serie A was in 1996. The team's colors are red and gray. Cremonese won the Anglo-Italian Cup in 1993. Some of the famous players who played for Cremonese include Gianluca Vialli, Anders Limpar, Giuseppe Favalli, John Aloisi and Enrico Chiesa.
Under Luigi Simoni, Cremonese returned to Serie A in 1993. With a side containing quality in the form of defenders Luigi Gualco and Corrado Verdelli, midfield playmaker Riccardo Maspero and forwards Andrea Tentoni and Matjaž Florijančič, Cremonese held their own in Serie A with a highly respectable 10th place finish in 1993-94 but would be relegated in 1996.
Relegation resulted in the decline of the club, plummeting to Serie C2 by 2000 before achieving successive promotions back to Serie B by 2005. Giovanni Dall'Igna, another defender from the Serie A years, has since returned to the club.
