And the born losers... :)
Being the “littlebrother” of Milano, life isn’t easy for the Inter-supporters. They haven’t won the league since 1989, which no opponents ever forgets to remind them about. The list of the managers who have been kicked by the fiery president Massimo Moratti is starting to get really long, and the supporters are looking so hard for some success.
The last thing the club won was actually the Uefacup 97/98, when they beat Lazio in the final. Spring 2002 they were so close to win the Italian league, but on the 5 of May they lost away to Lazio, and Juventus won the title instead. The 5th May is by the way another thing that the blueblack-supporters of Inter always gets reminded about by the opponents…
Still, being the “born loser” of Milano, Inter is a successful club. They are almost every year playing in one of the European cups, and is famous also far outside Europe.
Some of their most famous players are the brasilian forward Adriano, the Italian centertank Christian Vieri, the dutch midfielder Van der Meyde, and the crazy Italian defender Marco Materazzi.
The Inter-curva is one of the best in Italy, and at most of the Inter-games it’s a good atmosphere. Although all the years without a title has made them less good also in the singing-area.
The successful team...
AC Milan is one of the world’s most famous clubs, with a great history, and a great supporter-scene. This year the club sold more than 50 000 season-tickets, and their medium-crowd is around 65 000. They won the Serie A-title 03/04, and the Champions League the year before that. The atmosphere at Milan-games are normally really, really, good, not depending if it’s a derby against Inter or a cupgame against Ancona.
The team is playing in red-black-shirts at home, and normally white away from Milano.
The chance to see a Milan-game when you’re at Milan is quite good, since they 2004 are playing in both Serie A, Champions League and the Italian cup.
Almost every year they are playing in one of the European cups.
Some of their most famous players are the ucrainian forward Andrej Shevchenko, the brasilian starlet Kaká, the dutch midfielder Clarence Seedorf. Not to speak about the famous Italian defenders Alessandro Nesta and Paolo Maldini.
In Milan there two of the most famous soccer teams in Italy and in the world:Milan & Inter.
For this reason you can often have the chance to see a great soccer match....for italian serie A or Champions league.
The stadium "S.Siro" and the atmosphere are really great and,especially on the best matches, it is an unbelievaable emotion!
Some advices: 1)Don't buy the ticket from people outside the stadium (bagarini) because they sell tickets for impossible prices (a third ring for 120 eurosand sometimes you risk to get a fake (the ticket could be not valid). If you have doubts give up to the match.
2) For the biggest events you usually have to buy tickets some days before the match (for milan matches go to the milan point in " piazza 24 maggio" close to city center.
Stadio Giuseppe Meazza
Stadio Giuseppe Meazza or better known as the San Siro.
The San Siro is home to both AC and Inter Milan football clubs, who play in the Italian Serie A. There are more photo's in my Travelogues.
A Football (soccer) Match
If you're travelling to Milan and are lucky enough to be in town when there's a football match happening, by all means attend if you can! The Italians are avid and expressive fans of football, especially their two home teams, AC Milan and Inter. AC Milan games are particularily exciting.

Go to a soccer game at San Siro.
Milan traditionally has two of the better teams in Italian Series A soccer, AC Milan and Inter. Both teams boast some of the best players in the world, and the games fans are intense. If you desire you can choose to sit near the rowdy fans or far away from them. I sat on the other side of a plexiglass divider. My tickets were about 23 USD. The game was great, and the fans were worth the price of admission to hear their chants, see the flag waving and of course the flares at the start of each half and after a goal by the home team.
