MILAN – On the evening of 9 March 1908, the newspaper ‘Gazzetta Sportiva’ announced the birth of Inter. We will be brothers of the world, said the founders, affirming that they were only interested in football and beautiful play, rather than nationality, and perhaps in that term, ‘brothers’, there was already the intuition of having to transmit an ethic, a loyalty and an interest to those with histories that were far away from Italy. It was a profound insight, because for 104 years Inter have had true brothers around the world, and today they have tens of millions of fans that follow them everywhere. 104 years of passion, in the fullest sense.
The passion is nourished by great enthusiasm and great pain. It knows no boredom and is never grey, especially when the chosen colours are blue like the ocean and black like the night, along with touches of gold. They are colours of life, and a life this long had its characters and personalities over time. It has raised trophies to the stars; those same stars to which we have entrusted those who have departed us. 18 league titles, 7 Coppa Italia, 5 Italian Super Cups, 3 UEFA Cups, 3 Champions League titles, 2 Intercontinental Cups, 1 Club World Cup. Today, more than ever: Forza Inter.
