Founded: 1908, Stadium: San Siro, Capacity: 75,923

FC Internazionale was founded in 1908 following a schism within the Milan Cricket and Football Club (now AC Milan). A number of supporters of AC Milan did not agree with the rule prohibiting foreign players so they decided to establish their own team which they called Internazionale. They are the only Italian club which never have been relegated to Serie B. Modern football was born at Inter Milan in 1960 by coach Helenio Herrera. By sealing up the defense, thanks to one player serving as door-bolt (catenaccio). Inter’s home games are played at the San Siro stadium, which they share with city rivals Milan. The stadium is the largest in Italian football with a capacity of 75,923. They have long-standing rivalries with Milan, with whom they contest the Derby della Madonnina, and Juventus, with whom they contest the Derby d’Italia; their rivalry with the former is one of the most followed derbies in football. As of 2019, Inter has the highest home game attendance in Italy and the sixth highest attendance in Europe. The club is one of the most valuable in Italian and world football. One of the founders of Inter, a painter named Giorgio Muggiani, was responsible for the design of the first Inter logo in 1908. The first design incorporated the letters “FCIM” in the centre of a series of circles that formed the badge of the club. The basic elements of the design have remained constant even as finer details have been modified over the years. Starting at the 1999-2000 season, the original club crest was reduced in size, to give place for the addition of the club’s name and foundation year at the upper and lower part of the logo respectively. n 2007, the logo was returned to the pre-1999–2000 era. It was given a more modern look with a smaller Scudetto star and lighter color scheme. This version was used until July 2014, when the club decided to undertake a rebranding. The most significant difference between the current and the previous logo is the omission of the star from other media except match kits.
