AC Milan will take the Scudetto trophy on a global tour to connect with fans around the world as part of a trip with long-standing partner Emirates.
As the official website confirms, the Milan Trophy Tour will see the club put on get-togethers around the world, allowing local Rossoneri fans to gather in a special atmosphere and celebrate their passion.
The special fan events will be part of the “From Milan to Many” series, which over the past few months has brought the AC Milan colors around the globe with screening parties at Expo 2020 Dubai and in New York City.
The tour aims to bridge distances and represents an additional way for the club to engage with its fans, allowing the Rossoneri to bring the AC Milan brand and its values around the world, whilst further strengthening the bond between the club and its over 500 million fans worldwide.
Casper Stylsvig, Chief Revenue Officer of AC Milan: “We are truly delighted to kick off this global tour with Emirates and give back to our fans that have so passionately celebrated the Scudetto at the end of last season. Being able to take the trophy on tour around the globe is a testament to the international nature of AC Milan and of the passion of our international fanbase.”
More dates will be added to the AC Milan Trophy Tour and officially announced in the next few weeks, but the first two events have been confirmed:
London – October 4
Ahead of the much-anticipated Champions League clash between AC Milan and Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge on 5 October, the Rossoneri, in collaboration with the Milan Club London, will host an event at BOXPARK Wembley, an iconic sports destination located in north-west London, where AC Milan won its first European Cup back in 1963 – on Tuesday 4 October from 7pm local time.
The event will see the participation of AC Milan legend Alessandro Nesta, who will be bringing the Scudetto Trophy and will be taking part in a Q&A with fans.
AC Milan legend Alessandro Nesta commented: “I am truly delighted to join AC Milan in this event in London and meet the local fans. I have the red and black colors in my heart, so having the opportunity to be reunited with the Rossoneri fans is something I am truly looking forward to.”
New York City, October 8
AC Milan and Roc Nation, an Entertainment Company founded by JAY-Z, have joined forces with the AC Milan Club New York City to host a special “From Milan to Many” screening event on Saturday 8 October at JAY-Z’s exclusive 40/40 Club in Manhattan, on 6 West 25th St.
The event – the second of its kind hosted by AC Milan at the 40/40 Club in Manhattan in less than a year – will give local Rossoneri fans the opportunity to gather in a unique location to watch together the AC Milan vs. Juventus game, one of Serie A’s highest-profile games and one that is capable of reuniting the great AC Milan family around the world.
As part of the event, fans will be able to pose for a picture with the Scudetto Trophy. Entry is free, with fans attending the event receiving a free AC Milan gift.
