Foundation and early years (1899–1929)

Founding fathers of the Associazione Calcio Milan (1899)
The AC Milan championship team in 1901

AC Milan on 16 December 1899 as Milan Football and Cricket Club (Milan Cricket and Football Club) led by Alfred Edwards and Herbert Kilpin founded. Edwards, a former British Vice Consul, became the club's first elected President. Initially, in addition to the football division, there was also a brief cricket department, which was headed by Edward Berra. The official club colors red and black were chosen by co-founder and trainer Herbert Kilpin. During these years Italy was developing its first regular game operation at national level, in which Milan quickly made a name for itself . Just 17 months after the club was founded, on May 5, 1901, the team from Lombardy prevailed 3-0 after extra time in the championship final against CFC Genoa and won their first title.

In the meantime, two more championship titles were won when some members left the club in 1908 to found today's local rivals Inter Milan . In the following years, AC Milan was unable to build on the successes of the first nine years with the new team. It was not until 1915 that the team reached the finals again, which was not played to the end due to the start of the war . During the war years, football was still played in some regions, and Milan competed against other Milanese clubs in the surrounding area. From 1929 they finally established themselves in the newly founded Italian first division.

After the Second World War (1949–1956)

After the Second World War , the Rossoneri strengthened with the Swedish players Gunnar Gren , Gunnar Nordahl and Nils Liedholm , who became known as Gre-No-Li , and found their way back to their old level. The defensive was built around Cesare Maldini and led by Captain Andrea Bonomi; with the accuracy of the striker Nordahl, Milan was able to celebrate the fourth championship in 1951. It was also able to assert itself internationally, in 1951 the Coupe Latine was brought to Milan. In the final they beat Lille OSC . When the South Americans Juan Schiaffino and José Altafini also joined the club in the mid-1950s , the superiority in the Italian league became increasingly clear. In the first 20 years after the end of the war, with one exception, Serie A always reached one of the top three places in the table, with five championship titles to be celebrated.

Promotion to the top European team (1959–1969)

After the 1960/61 season , Nereo Rocco was hired as a coach by sports director Giuseppe Viani . Viani had previously acted as a trainer himself and won a title with Milan, but suffered a heart attack and now retired to a role as sports director. With Rocco and newcomer Gianni Rivera as a formative midfielder, Milan won four national titles. But successes could still be celebrated on an international level. After the Italians failed in the semifinals and the final of the European Cup in 1956 and 1958, respectively, against Spanish representatives Real Madrid , they finally won the most important European title for the first time on May 22, 1963 with a 2-1 final win against Benfica Lisbon .

However, they missed winning the World Cup after losing 1-0 to the winner of the South American club championship FC Santos in the decisive game. Before that, both teams were able to beat their opponents 4-2 at home.

In 1964, AC Milan retired as defending champions in the quarter-finals against eventual finalists Real Madrid. However, it was in 1967 for the first time in club history to win the national cup competition, the final of the Coppa Italia was Calcio Padova 1: beaten 0th After the city rivals Inter had won both the European Champion Clubs' Cup and the World Cup in 1964 and 1965 and thus overtook Milan in terms of the number of successes , the second major international triumph for the Rossoneri followed in 1968 when they beat the German representative Hamburger SV won the European Cup Winners' Cup . A year later, AC Milan won the European Cup for the second time. They clearly beat the Ajax Amsterdam team 4-1. This time, the Milanese remained winners in the duel against the representative from South America and thus won the World Cup for the first time. They beat last year's winner Estudiantes de La Plata from Argentina when they lost 2-1 after a clear 3-0 home win in the second leg. The European club title could not be defended, however, because in the following season they were eliminated in the round of 16 against the eventual tournament winner Feyenoord Rotterdam .

Milan after winning the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1967/68

After winning the national cup for the second time in the finals against SSC Napoli in 1972 , they won the cup winners' competition for the second time in 1973. The Leeds United team was defeated in the final. A year later you could defend the Coppa Italia in the final against Juventus Turin . Also in the cup of the cup winners competition they were in the final again, but surprisingly lost 2-0 to the cup winners from the GDR , 1. FC Magdeburg .

At the end of the 1970s, further successes were celebrated, so in 1977 they won the national cup competition for the fourth time, with Milan beating arch-rivals Inter Milan 2-0 in the final. In 1979 , Gianni Rivera's last season, AC Milan won the championship for the tenth time, after the last matchday they were in first place in front of AC Perugia and Juventus Turin.

In 1980 the streak of success ended abruptly when the club and Lazio Rome were sentenced to relegation to Serie B by the Italian Football Association for illegal betting. Even if Milan managed to get promoted again immediately, the club recovered only slowly and had to make their way to the second division again the following year. After relegated to Serie B, he was repeatedly promoted to the top division. Among other things, this was achieved because local rivals Inter loaned the Rossoneri three players, as Milan at the time did not have the financial means to set up a powerful team.

When the Italian entrepreneur Silvio Berlusconi acquired a majority stake in the club in 1986, AC Milan found its way back on the road to success. The team experienced a substantial rebuilding, with Arrigo Sacchi, a coach who preferred an offensive football, was hired. In addition to Roberto Donadoni , the Dutch Ruud Gullit , Marco van Basten and Frank Rijkaard were signed . In addition to these offensive players and the two defenders Franco Baresi and Paolo Maldini , a powerful team developed which began to dominate European club football from the late 1980s.

During this time the team was called Gli Immortali ("The Immortals") . AC Milan won the European Cup , the European Supercup and the World Cup in 1989 after winning the championship for the eleventh time the year before . In the national championship, on the other hand, you had to be content with third place behind city rivals Inter and SSC Napoli at the end of the season .

In 1990 AC Milan successfully defended their title in the European Cup. In the domestic league, however, they had to admit defeat this year and finished second in the final account after SSC Napoli .

1991 Arrigo Sacchi left the club to coach the Italian national football team. Even under his successor Fabio Capello , who in contrast to his predecessor played more defensively, AC Milan remained successful. In addition, with Zvonimir Boban and Dejan Savićević as well as Jean-Pierre Papin came other world class players. But as in the previous year, it was only enough for second place in the national championship. This time the team from Sampdoria Genoa had to be given priority. In the European Cup, too, the Italians failed in the quarter-finals against French champions Olympique Marseille , who later became finalists. After the defending champions did not get past a draw in the first game as hosts, the second leg in Marseille had to be won. When the floodlights in the stadium failed shortly before the end of the game when the French were 1-0, the Italians took this as an opportunity to abandon the game. As a result, the club was banned from all European club competitions for one year for its unauthorized actions.

In the 1991/92 season you could win the Scudetto again after four years . Known as Gli Invicibili ("The Invincible") , Capello's team played very offensive football and remained unbeaten in 58 games throughout the season. Another dominant year followed in the following season ; at the end of the season was again the title win. Again, Capello's team initially showed a very offensive game; Milan won 5-3 against Lazio, 7-3 in Florence, beating Napoli 5-0 and Sampdoria 5-1. However, after Marco van Basten sustained a serious injury (which caused him to resign two years later), this phase ended and Capello completely changed the team's tactics. The third championship title in a row in the 1993/1994 season was then won due to the strong defense around Baresi, Maldini, Costacurta, Tassoti and later Desailly; Milan allowed only 15 goals in 34 games and only scored 36 goals themselves.

From the 1992/93 season, Milan was again allowed to participate in the highest European club competition, which was carried out for the first time under the name UEFA Champions League . In doing so, they immediately made it to the final, where they met the last European conqueror from Marseille. Although AC Milan went into the game as the clear favorite, the revenge for the quarter-final defeat failed two years earlier. Olympique Marseille, on the other hand, celebrated their first win in the European premier class with a narrow 1-0 victory.

In the following year, the Milanese moved into the final again. The team was not able to convince in the preliminary round with its already distinctive defensive football and was able to win just two out of six games, with four draws. For this reason, AC Milan has been considered an outsider again for a long time, as it faced with FC Barcelona a team which, according to many observers, practiced the most aggressive and goal-scoring football of the time. But in the end the expected changing of the guard in European club football did not materialize, AC Milan took over the initiative from the start in the Athens Olympic Stadium in front of 76,000 spectators and clearly defeated their Spanish opponents 4-0.

In 1995, Milan made it to the final of the Champions League for the third time in a row. The now aging stars were defeated by the "young wild ones" from Ajax Amsterdam in Vienna's Ernst Happel Stadium with 0: 1. Patrick Kluivert , who was just 18 at the time, scored the decisive goal shortly before the end of regular time.

With this defeat, a 7-year era came to an end in the European premier league, in which AC Milan played a formative role, which in its dominance could only be compared with that of Real Madrid in the late 1950s. The Italians reached the final five times during this time, and ultimately won three European football crowns.

After that, the superiority of AC Milan ended for the time being, as the team was in a state of upheaval. Coach Fabio Capello left the club and was replaced by Óscar Tabárez from Uruguay . Ruud Gullit had already ended his involvement with the club in 1993, Marco van Basten had to end his career due to persistent injury problems, and other stars of earlier years such as Franco Baresi could no longer continue their old performance. New spectacular commitments such as those of Roberto Baggio or George Weah could not close the resulting gaps, which caused the club to suffer a number of surprising defeats in Europe. In 1997 and 1998, the club from northern Italy was far from the successes of the past days, as they could only reach a place in the lower half of the table even at national level. After brief renewed terms of office of Sacchi and Capello , Alberto Zaccheroni was finally hired as coach, who ended the dry spell and led the club to the renewed championship in 1999. Nevertheless, the coaching carousel continued to turn until international success returned with Carlo Ancelotti . After the goalscorer Filippo Inzaghi , Andrij Shevchenko , the creative midfielders Rui Costa , Andrea Pirlo and Clarence Seedorf , as well as defender Alessandro Nesta were signed in the following years , Milan was once again one of the strongest teams in Europe and reached after 2002 won the national cup competition for the fifth time, and finally in 2003 for the eighth time in the club's history the final of the Champions League. Here they won on penalties against league rivals Juventus Turin and were able to secure the most valuable title in Europe for the sixth time. In the 2003/04 season , AC Milan retired as defending champions in the quarter-finals against Deportivo La Coruña . After the first leg at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium was won 4-1, they surprisingly lost the second leg at the Estadio Riazor with 0-4. Nationally, however, the season was more enjoyable and in 2004 the 17th championship was celebrated. Andrij Shevchenko was the top scorer with 24 goals this season.

May 28, 2003, AC Milan beat Juventus Turin in the
2002/03 UEFA Champions League final

In the 2004/05 season , AC Milan was again in the final of the Champions League, where the opponent was Liverpool this time . This game would go down as one of the most memorable in the history of the European Championship. After the big favorite from Italy initially dominated his opponent at will and led with three goals at half time, the English fought their way back into the game and reached extra time. After this did not bring a decision, the winner was determined on penalties, in which Milan finally lost the game, which was believed to be safe.

A year later, AC Milan reached the semi-finals of the Champions League , but had to admit defeat to eventual winners FC Barcelona.

In May 2006, the Italian league was shaken by a scandal in which Juventus Turin and AC Milan were involved. As a consequence, the Milan club were deducted 44 points for the 2005/06 season just ended. As a result, Milan lost second place and the associated direct qualification for the Champions League 2006/07 . An appeals court, however, softened the judge's verdict and reduced the penalty to 30 points, whereby the club still took third place in the table and was at least able to reach the Champions League via the qualifying round. In addition, the club got a deduction of 15 points for the following season 2006/07, which was reduced to eight points after the appointment.

23 May 2007, AC Milan wins the
UEFA Champions League for the seventh time in the final against Liverpool FC

Despite this arduous detour, Milan reached the final of the Champions League again in the 2006/07 season , where Liverpool FC, the final opponent of Istanbul, was waiting. But unlike in the legendary final of 2005, the Rossoneri kept the better end to themselves and deservedly won 2-1 with two goals from Filippo Inzaghi . In August of the same year, AC Milan was able to add the fifth win of the UEFA Super Cup to its seventh triumph in the premier class when the reigning UEFA Cup winners FC Sevilla were defeated 3-1 in Monaco .

On December 16, 2007, AC Milan won the FIFA Club World Cup for the first time , with the 2007 Copa Libertadores winner , the Boca Juniors , being beaten 4-2 in Yokohama . The 2007/08 season ended on a disappointing fifth place in the table, which meant that the 2008/09 season missed the Champions League . In the UEFA Cup , they prevailed against FC Zurich in the first round , while in the group stage they faced SC Heerenveen , Sporting Braga , FC Portsmouth and VfL Wolfsburg . Already in the sixteenth finals, the Rossoneri surprisingly eliminated against Werder Bremen .

Before the 2010/11 season , Massimiliano Allegri was a new coach, and the squad was strengthened with new players. For the offensive the strikers Zlatan Ibrahimović and Robinho were signed , for the winter transfer period in December also the Italian international Antonio Cassano and in January the internationally experienced Mark van Bommel . Together with top performers such as Thiago Silva , Alessandro Nesta , Gennaro Gattuso , Clarence Seedorf , Andrea Pirlo and Alexandre Pato , a team was formed which after seven years was able to secure the 18th championship title three game days before the end of the season.

In the Champions League, however, the Milanese were eliminated in the round of 16 against Tottenham Hotspur . In the following season 2011/12 you just had to admit defeat Juventus Turin in the championship . In the Champions League , the Milanese reached the quarter-finals against FC Barcelona .

A change was then initiated with the aim of rejuvenating the aging team. For the 2012/13 season , club icons such as Gennaro Gattuso , Alessandro Nesta , Filippo Inzaghi and Clarence Seedorf left the club or ended their careers. AC Milan reached third place this season with a final sprint, but failed again in the Champions League at FC Barcelona .

The 2013/14 season was to be one of the most disappointing in modern times for the club, and the return of the former heart of Kaká did not change that much. Clarence Seedorf succeeded the dismissed Massimiliano Allegri for the rest of the season in January 2014, but remained unlucky and so they only reached 8th place, while they were eliminated in the Champions League in the round of 16 against eventual finalists Atlético Madrid . Due to the missed European Cup, Kaká left the club again after a year.

For the 2014/15 season , the former Milan striker and subsequent youth coach Filippo Inzaghi became the first team coach on June 10, 2014. Goalkeeper Diego Lopez , midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura and strikers Jérémy Ménez and Fernando Torres have been signed. They started the new season successfully, after the first ten games they were in the top positions. After a mixed second half of the season marked by injuries, Milan only finished in 10th place; thus the international places were missed for the second year in a row. At the end of the 2015/16 season, the club finished 7th and thus the first non-qualifying place for the European Cup. In the Coppa Italia Milan and Siniša Mihajlović failed in the final at Juventus Turin. In the 2016/17 season, with Vincenzo Montella in sixth place, the club reached a place in the European Cup for the first time after a three-year break.

On November 27, 2017, coach Vincenzo Montella was sacked after 20 points in 14 Serie A games. His successor was the former Milan player Gennaro Gattuso , with whom they finished the season in 6th place and thus qualified for the Europa League.

In June 2018, AC Milan was banned from the European Cup for two years by UEFA for violating the Financial Fair Play regulations after the club recorded a transfer minus of € 255 million between 2015 and 2017. Milan has appealed this judgment to the International Court of Justice for Sports . The latter found that the penalty for the violation was disproportionate and granted the objection. AC Milan can now participate in the UEFA Europa League in the 2018/19 season .

On May 28, 2019, the club announced that coach Gennaro Gattuso and sporting director Leonardo would leave AC Milan. Gattuso still had a contract until 2021. Milan finished fifth in the 2018/19 season and qualified for the 2019/20 UEFA Europa League , but they missed the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League by one point behind city rivals Inter Milan. On June 28, AC Milan was banned from participating in the Europa League. This was announced by the International Court of Sport (CAS) in Lausanne . The club was banned for serious violations of UEFA's financial fair play rules.

In 1925, Milan's club president Piero Pirelli decided on a new stadium and had the San Siro built within 13 months. Since then, the stadium has hosted numerous major sporting events, such as the soccer world championships in 1934 and 1990 , the soccer championship in 1980 and eleven European cup finals to date. It was originally owned by AC Milan, but the stadium has been shared between the two Milanese clubs since 1947. The inauguration took place on September 19, 1926 with a friendly game between Milan and Inter.

From October 1941 to June 1945, during the Second World War, Milan played in the Arena Civica , because the San Siro was inaccessible for many Rossoneri fans due to the lack of electricity.

Fans and followers

Brigate Rossonere (2006)

The organized fan groups can traditionally be found in the Curva Sud of the stadium. One of her songs is the Milanese anthem O mia bela Madunina with the refrain “… ma Milan è un gran Milan” (… but Milan is a big Milan).

The Fossa dei Leoni ( German  cave of the lions ) was an Ultrà group founded in 1968 and had up to 10,000 members. In contrast to the Commando Tigre founded in 1967 and the Brigate Rossonere founded in 1975, it was apolitical due to its size. There was an agreement between the Fossa dei Leoni and the Brigate Rossonere that stipulated that politics had no place in the stadium. This agreement still exists between all groups today.

In 2005, the Fossa dei Leoni was dissolved after disputes occurred within the curve. The groups of the Curva Sud came together under the leadership of the Brigate Rossonere to form the Curva Sud Milano . Only the Commando Tigre still existed as an independent large group on the south curve until it disbanded in 2016.
