History

Inter was founded in March 1908 after breaking from Milan Cricket and Football club. Many Italians and Swiss were unhappy about the domination of Italians in the team and so broke away to form Internazionale. The name derives from the owners wanting foreign players as well as Italians playing for their team. The club had immediate success winning the Scudetto (championship) in 1910 and their second in 1920. Their captain and coach of the first win, Fossati, was killed in the 1st World War. Milan survived by winning two survival play-offs to stay in the top division in 1922, and to this day still boast their 100% record for playing in the top flight since the founding of the club.

Their first Copa Italia was won in 1938-39, a team led by the great Guiseppe Meazza. Meazza was such a legend that the San Siro is officially named after the great player. In 1953 and 1954 Inter went on to win their sixth and seventh titles. In 1960 Helenio Herrera joined from Barcelona and transformed Inter into one of the best teams in Europe. He finished first in his third season in charge and then followed with back to back European Titles. The 90’s proved to be disappointing and without any real direction in the club however did win three UEFA Cup victories in this era.
