Early years (1908–1952)First Inter side to win the scudetto, in 1909–10.
The club was founded on 9 March 1908 as Football Club Internazionale Milano, following a "schism" from the Milan Cricket and Football Club (43 members). A group of Italians and Swiss (Giorgio Muggiani, a painter who also designed the club's logo, Bossard, Lana, Bertoloni, De Olma, Enrico Hintermann, Arturo Hintermann, Carlo Hintermann, Pietro Dell'Oro, Hugo and Hans Rietmann, Voelkel, Maner, Wipf, and Carlo Ardussi) were unhappy about the domination of Italians in the AC Milan team, and broke away from them, leading to the creation of Internazionale. From the beginning, the club was open to foreign players and thus lived up to its founding name.
The club won its very first Scudetto (championship) in 1910 and its second in 1920. The captain and coach of the first Scudetto was Virgilio Fossati, who fell in World War I. In 1922 Inter were in Group B of the Serie A and came in last place after picking up only 11 points in the season.
Football Club Internazionale Milano, commonly known as Internazionale or Inter, is an Italian professional football club based in Milan, Lombardy, Italy. Outside Italy, the club is often called Inter Milan. Inter are the champions of Italy, their win in 2009–10 being a fifth successive title, equalling the all-time record. Inter are also the reigning European champions.
Wearing black and blue stripes, they have played in the Italian first division since 1908. The club have won 29 national trophies including eighteen Italian league titles, six Italian Cups and five Italian Super Cups. At the international level, they have won three European Cup/Champions League; first of all two back-to-back European Cups in 1964 and 1965 and then, after 45 years, in 2010, completing an unprecedented (for an Italian team) treble after winning in the same season the Coppa Italia and the Scudetto. The club won also three UEFA Cups in 1991, 1994 and 1998, and two Intercontinental Cups in 1964 and 1965.
Inter play in the largest stadium in Italy, the Giuseppe Meazza stadium (also known as San Siro) and train at the Angelo Moratti Sports Center (also known as La Pinetina), a training facility 30 kilometers away in Appiano Gentile, near Como.
