Inter has been one of the most succesful clubs in the history of Italian football, having won 14 Scudetti, 5 Coppa Italia, and 3 Italian Super Cups. Inter has also won 2 European Cups (Champions League), 3 UEFA Cups, and has been World Champions two times. In Italy, Inter also has the distinction of being the only team to never be relegated from Serie A with a league record of 85 seasons in top division.

The club wears blue and black stripes, which gives the origin of their Nerazzurri nickname. Inter has one of the biggest fan bases in Italy, along with its two biggest rivals, AC Milan and Juventus.

According to The Football Money League published by consultants Deloitte, in season 2005-06 Inter were the 7th highest earning football club in the world with an estimated revenue of €206.6 million.

[edit] Polisportiva Internazionale F.C.

In the 20's Inter was not only football, but also rugby and basket-ball. In the season 1923 the Internazionale F.C. won the national championship of basket. In the 1929 and 1930, when the club changed name in Ambrosiana Milano, the club won 2 championship of rugby. And finally in the 50's there was a Ice Hockey branch of the club, named Hockey Club Milano-Inter, that was Italian Champion in the 1950, 1951, 1952 and 1954, and won the Spengler Cup (a sort of European Champions Cup) in the 1953 and 1954.

[edit] History

[edit] Pre-Second World War

The club was founded on March 9, 1908, following a schism from the Milan Cricket and Football Club, now known as A.C. Milan. 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, Ugo 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 her 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 was killed in World War I. Its first Coppa Italia (Italian Cup) was won in 1938-39, led by the great Giuseppe Meazza, for whom the San Siro stadium is officially named, and a fifth league championship followed in 1940, despite an injury to Meazza. During the Fascist era, the name "Internazionale" was not looked upon kindly, and the club played as Ambrosiana, wearing white shirts emblazoned with a red cross. In 1932, the club was permitted to append its old moniker, and was known as Ambrosiana-Inter. Finally in 1942, the club reverted to its original name, Internazionale.

[edit] La Grande Inter

Following the war, Inter won its sixth championship in 1953 and the seventh in 1954. Following these titles, Inter was to enter the best years of its history, affectionately known as the era of La Grande Inter (The Great Inter). During this magnificent period, with Helenio Herrera as head coach, the club won 3 league championships in 1963, 1965 and 1966. The most famous moments during this decade also include Inter's 2 back-to-back European Cup wins. In 1964, Inter won the first of those tournaments, playing against the famous Spanish club Real Madrid. The next season, playing in their Following the golden era of the 1960s, Inter managed to win their eleventh league title in 1971 and their twelfth in 1980. Inter were defeated for the second time in five years in the final of the European Cup, going down 0-2 to Johan Cruijff's Ajax Amsterdam in 1972. During the 1970s and the 1980s, Inter also added two to its Coppa Italia tally, in 1977-78 and 1981-82.

The 90's spelt a dark period for the Inter supporter. Whilst their great rivals AC Milan and Juventus were achieving success both domestically and in Europe. Inter were left behind, with some mediocre positions in the standings, their worst coming in 1994 when they finished just 1 point from relegation. In the 1990's though Inter did achieve some success with 3 Uefa cup victories in 1991, 1994 and 1998. With Moratti's takeover from Ernesto Pelligrini in 1995 Inter were promised more success and with many high profile signings like Christian Vieri, Ronaldo and Hernan Crespo, with Inter twice breaking the worlds record transfer fee in this period. However the 1990's remained a decade of disappointment and is the only decade in Inters history that they did not win the Italian Serie A Championship. It can be argued though that with the recent result of the calciopoli scandal Inter may have had more of an opportunity to win if it had not been for outside influences and higherarchy of other teams.

In the 2004-05 season Inter won the Coppa Italia (Italian Cup) against AS Roma and followed that up by winning the Supercoppa Italiana (Italian Super Cup) against Juventus at the start of the 2005-06 season. On 11 May 2006, Inter retained their Coppa Italia title again against AS Roma, in a two legged match, with a result of 1-1 in Rome and 3-1 back home.

Inter was awarded the 2005-06 Serie A championship because of the match fixing scandal. The Italian Federal Appeal Commission on 14 July 2006 found Juventus, Lazio, Fiorentina and AC Milan guilty of match-fixing. Also, with the relegation of Juventus and the point deduction for AC Milan, Inter was immediately suspected to be the strongest favorite to finish in first for the 2006-07 Serie A season. During the season, Inter made a record 17-game winning streak in Serie A extending a new league record after having defeated Calcio Catania 2-5 on Feb. 25th. Inter bettered Real Madrid's and Bayern Munich's 15-match consecutive wins streaks. The run of consecutive wins ended on February 28, after a home 1-1 tie to Udinese Calcio.

[edit] Other historical information

Inter has never been relegated to Serie B (second division) in their history, a fact the fans hold in high regard. They remain the only Italian club for which that can be said, following Juve's banishment to Serie B football following the match-fixing scandal. As of 2007, Inter's 99-year run in the top flight is one of the longest of any club in the world.

The current honorary president and owner of Inter is Massimo Moratti. His father, Angelo Moratti, was the president of Inter during the golden era of the 1960s. Massimo, trying to emulate his father's great success, has spent a great deal of money to bring some of the world's best players to the club in an effort to win the scudetto on the field for the first time since 1989. A 14th scudetto did arrive via the courts after the Calciopoli scandal in 2006.

[edit] Rivalry

Inter has several principal rivalries, most obviously arch-enemies AC Milan. The most notorious scoreline in the history of this fixture came in 3 March of 1918, when Milan thrashed Inter 8 goals to 1. The rivalry is especially heated since Inter broke off from AC Milan. Inter was seen as the club of the bourgeoisie (nicknamed bauscia, a Milanese term meaning "braggart"), whereas AC Milan was the working-class team (nicknamed casciavit, meaning in the Milanese dialect "screwdrivers", with both reference to the workers that using these instruments, and to "awkwards") and was, and still is, mostly supported by migrants from Southern Italy.

During the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, Inter was the more successful club, being World Champions twice in the sixties. However in recent times Silvio Berlusconi's Milan has been the more dominant team. This rivalry has been compounded by AC Milan acquiring a few Inter players in recent years with mixed results. Milan paid Inter a relatively cheap price for players such as Clarence Seedorf and Andrea Pirlo, whom it managed to turn into world-class performers. In the summer of 2005, however, Milan snatched from Inter then world-class Italian international Christian Vieri, who failed to find success at Milan. This season, Inter have claimed the bragging rights, winning both competitive fixtures between the two; 4-3 and 2-1.

Another Inter rival, Juventus, were the only other club to have never been relegated, which changed with the match-fixing scandal of 2006 as Juve were relegated to Serie B. It is generally considered that the rivalry with Juventus is even stronger than the one with Milan, and many Juventus fans were bitter[citation needed] to see their star players, such as Patrick Vieira and Zlatan Ibrahimović leave for Inter, especially after Vieira's stunning debut in the Super Cup, in which he scored two goals.

[edit] Inter's Ultras

Inter's supporters are among the most well known around Europe for having some of the oldest ultras around. The principal supporting group is Boys San, who were founded in 1969 making them the oldest group in Italy alongside Turin's Ultras Granata (1969), Sampdoria's Ultras Tito (1969) and AC Milan's now dissolved group, Fossa dei Leoni, which was founded in 1968.

[edit] The major groups

These are the 5 major groups in Inter's Curva Nord (north stand):

Boys San:

Positioned at the centre of the terrace, the group was founded early in 1969. It is widely regarded as the leader of the curva and has a place in the history of the Italian Ultras. Firstly named only Boys, the group then changed its name to Boys San, which stands for Squadre d'Azione Nerazzurre.


To the left of Boys San is the Viking Inter group, which was founded in 1984. This group is famous for once having the largest flag in the Curva.


To the extreme right of the stand is the banner of Inter's Irriducibili group. This is the most right winged group in the Curva, founded in 1987, it was created when the historic Skins group dissolved.


This group is to the right of the Boys San banner and is one of the oldest groups around, as it was founded in 1975.

Brianza Alcoolica:

The final major group is named Brianza Alcoolica, they were founded in 1985 and have the famous motto, 'You'll never drink alone!'.

[edit] Other groups

There are also many other groups, varying in importance in the Curva Nord, such as:

  • Milano Nerazzurra
  • Boys Roma
  • Pessimi Elementi
  • Bulldogs
  • Imbastisci
  • Monkeys
  • Gruppo Decisi
  • Asterix Group
  • Squilibrati
  • Fō Dè Cō
  • Banda Bagaj (situated in the opposite stand)
  • D.N.A
  • Pitbulls
  • Monelle (female ultras group)
  • Baùscia
