Milan Milan Loves Football

Two football teams are part of the city’s heritage: AC Milan and Inter Milan. Buy an official T-shirt or team jersey in the city or visit the legendary San Siro Stadium for a tour or a match.

Italy is a country replete with devoted football fans and, rather than a sport, football is like a national religion. Statistics give a good idea on how football in Italy is a world-famous tourist attraction, as well as a mirror of the country, with its vices and virtues. Around 52% of Italians claim to be football fans, and as much as 28% of them hardcore followers. Watching the match on TV or going to the stadium is a collective ritual and Milan’s two well-known football teams, A.C. Milan and Inter, are two of the most-followed in Italy.

A. C. Milan was founded in 1899 and is one of the most successful teams in the world. The Football Club Internazionale Milano SpA, better known as Internazionale or simply as Inter, was founded in 1908 by 44 rival members and is the only team to have participated in all Serie A premiere league competitions to date.

Although Turin’s team Juventus accounts the greatest number of fans, AC Milan is the most popular team abroad with 47 million fans around the world. The most affectionate supporters, though, belong to Inter, bringing more fans to the stadium than any other team, home and away.

Going to San Siro on a Sunday and going back home with a few souvenirs is a must. The cost? From a few euros to several hundred (if you’re lucky enough to get a place in the gallery during theDerby della Madonnina, when the two teams go head to head).
