The Youth Sector has been responsible for producing some of the club’s greatest ever players, including their top three all-time appearance makers, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi and Alessandro Costacurta, as well as several players, in recent years, who have managed to become regular players in Serie A. The training facilities are based at the Centro Sportivo Vismara (Vismara Sports Centre), a 57-acre (230,000 m2) site in Gratosoglio, Milan, although the Primavera team train at Milanello alongside the first team.
The Youth Sector encompasses several age-group teams ranging from Under-8s up to Under-18s, divided as follows:
AC Milan Academy
Milan Academy is the set of projects dedicated to the involvement of an U18 target audience in sporting activities via the football coaching promoted by AC Milan and the training of all adults involved.
The training proposal is aimed at national and international sports clubs, both amateur and professional, sports coaches and managers, events clubs, federations, institutions and sponsors who, in various ways, aim to generate a sporting culture and organisational excellence in their territory.
The Milan Academy, AC Milan’s true centre of innovation, is shaped by a team of sports professionals made up of managers, football coaches, teachers and instructors, who operate with knowledge and competence in accordance with the Club’s principles and who also aspire to define a new standard for the world of football.
Passion, Excellence, Sophistication and Teamwork are the building blocks of the Project which, by sharing the Milan Method and using guidelines, coaching programmes and dedicated services, supports the adults who follow daily the human and sporting development of all the youngsters involved in football and sporting activities. Academy programs include: AC MILAN ACADEMY IN ITALY, MILAN JUNIOR CAMP, AC MILAN INTERNATIONAL ACADEMIES, MILAN X-PERIENCE, and EVENTS.
AC MILAN ACADEMY IN ITALY
The AC Milan Academy in Italy project is characterised by a methodical approach, which focuses on the components relevant to the child’s wellbeing and the relationship of the various adult figures involved (teachers, coaches, parents and managers) by identifying lines of development and responding to his/her emerging needs during the development period.
This approach is implemented both in Football Schools and Training Centres in accordance with the principles and procedures that are aimed at promoting the Culture of Sport through the teaching of football.
Our desire has always been to accompany both the Football Schools and the Training Centres in their growth.
The MILAN Method stimulates and generates new questions, values, projects and plans. It doesn’t teach methods, but teaches how to research and critically discuss them, apply them everywhere and then translate them into operational methods.
One of the crucial criteria, “how to carry out training”, and an updated methodology both aim to generate a good capacity for human and educational relations.
The primary aim is first and foremost to promote the general wellbeing of the young athlete and at the same time to enhance their technical, tactical, physical and social skills that are typical of the sport.
Developing the child as a whole through the practice of sport also requires the ability to analyse and plan action that takes into account all the factors at play in the context of the Football School, in close connection with its territory.
Every young athlete is part of an emotional and interpersonal network that cannot be ignored, and which constitutes an embedded part of their personality.
Recognising this is the first step towards developing the person as a whole through the practice of sport and the strengthening of their technical skills. It therefore becomes necessary to identify the needs, motivation, stages and learning principles that characterise the entire educational process, as well as the context in which the technical action takes place.
The success of a technical exercise depends on the overall experience that the young person has in a given situation, i.e. the relationship between the young athlete and the practical action.
The main educational means used is the game in its playful form, because it allows us to pursue several aims: a game doesn’t have one single interpretation, depending on the characteristics of how it’s conducted the final goal or outcome may vary. The game as an educational tool develops:
The movement and technical aspects via its intuitive components, its decision-making and coordinative factors.
The cognitive aspect by increasing the capacity of observation, analysis and interpretation of the game’s challenges.
The interpersonal aspect via encounters with others and social learning

AC Milan History
A.C. Milan has won a total of 18 FIFA and UEFA trophies, which places them in a tie for fourth place among all clubs (tied with Boca Juniors) and places them in first place among all Italian clubs. Milan has won a record-tying three Intercontinental Cups, as well as one FIFA Club World Cup, seven European Cups/Champions League titles (an Italian record), the UEFA Super Cup a record-tying five times, and the Cup Winners’ Cup twice.
Milan also holds the joint record for most UEFA Super Cup victories. Milan is tied for second place with Internazionale as the most successful club in Serie A, having won 18 league titles between the two teams. However, Juventus remains the most successful club in Serie A overall (36 league titles). Additionally, they have been victorious in the Coppa Italia five times, as well as the Supercoppa Italiana seven times. San Siro, which is sometimes referred to as the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, is where all of Milan’s home games are held.
It is the largest stadium in all of Italian football, with a total capacity of 75,923 seats, and it is shared with Internazionale, the city’s other major football team and rival. They have a long-standing rivalry with Inter, with whom they compete in the Derby della Madonnina, which is one of the most watched derbies in all of football. The Madonnina Derby is also one of the most famous derbies in Italy.
The club is one of the wealthiest in all of football, both in Italy and around the world. It was a founding member of both the G-14 group of Europe’s premier football clubs, which no longer exists, as well as the European Club Association, which was created to replace the G-14.
Officially named the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza after the former footballer who played for both Milan and Inter, the San Siro is the team’s home stadium. It has a capacity of 75,923 spectators. San Siro is the name of the neighborhood in which it is situated, and this is the term that is most usually used. Since it was privately built in 1926 with finance from Milan’s chairman at the time, Piero Pirelli, San Siro has served as Milan’s home stadium. San Siro has been the home of Milan ever since. The building was put up by one hundred and twenty different employees over the course of thirteen and a half months. The stadium belonged to the club until it was sold to the city in 1935, and ever since 1947, when Inter was recognized as a joint tenant, it has been shared with them. Before that, it was owned by the club.
The first game ever played at the stadium was on September 19, 1926, and it was a friendly match between Inter and Milan. Inter won the game 6–3. On September 19, 1926, Milan played their first league game at San Siro, which was a loss to Sampierdarenese by a score of 1-2. The stadium had an initial capacity of 35,000 spectators, but it has since had numerous significant modifications, the most recent of which was in preparation for the 1990 FIFA World Cup, when its capacity was adjusted to 85,700 and it was given a polycarbonate roof. Its capacity was lowered to 80,018 during the summer of 2008 in order to conform to the new guidelines established by UEFA.
From the very beginning, black and red have been recognized as the Associazione Calcio Milan club’s official colors. This is connected to the team’s moniker, Rossoneri, which literally translates to “red-black” from the Italian language.
The only thing that was changed in this most recent facelift was the typeface; the numerals that appear below the circle and indicate the year Milan was founded have been made larger. Additionally, the colors of red and black shifted, albeit only very little.
The former owner of AC Milan failed to make a $37 million loan payment that was owed to Paul Elliott Singer’s hedge fund company in July 2018, which resulted in Singer becoming the owner of the Italian soccer team. Singer was born on August 22, 1944.
Elliott had provided the previous owner with a loan of $400 million in order to assist him in the process of purchasing the team, which competes in the highest level of soccer competition in Italy. Singer eventually stated that Elliott plans to return AC Milan “to the pantheon of top European football clubs where it rightly belongs” and to inject $66 million to “stabilize the club’s finances” and “fund AC Milan’s transformation.” Although the company had been expected to sell the club and entertained negotiations, Singer stated that Elliott plans to return AC Milan “to the pantheon of top European football clubs where it rightly belongs.”
