The first time Milan’s name appeared publicly was on Monday, December 18 in an article by the Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper. The original headquarters were in the Fiaschetteria Toscana in Via Berchet in Milan and President Alfred Ormonde Edwards enrolled the team in the Italian Football Federation the following January.
The team played just one game during their first season, against Torino, and despite losing, the club lifted their first trophy, the ‘King’s Medal’, presented by King Umberto I (acmilan.com).
The Rossoneri are one of the most successful teams in world football with 18 Serie A League titles, five Italian cups, and seven European Cup triumphs.
Paolo Maldini holds the record for most appearances with 648. Both his shirt number (3) and the number 6 of Franc0 Baresi were retired by the club in tribute to their outstanding careers.
