History of the Inter Milan Home Strip
The iconic blue and black vertical stripes of the Inter Milan home jersey resonate around the globes as the colours of one of the best football team’s in the world. Inter Milan football club was founded in 1908 and has since sported the infamous blue and black colour scheme. It is said that the colour black was chosen to represent night, and blue symbolises the sky, wherever the colours come from they are now inherently interlinked with Inter and inspire the clubs nickname – Nerazzurri.
For a brief period from 1928 to the end of World War II the club was forced to change their name and colour scheme. During this time they were known as Società Sportiva Ambrosiana and wore a white football shirt with red cross on the front, this design represents the colours of the City of Milan. This colour scheme was resurrected in 2008, to celebrate the clubs 100-year anniversary, with a similarly designed Inter Milan away kit. You can shop for all the latest away and third kits with Soccer Box too.
San Siro – The Home of Inter Milan
Since 1947 Inter Milan has played home fixtures at the San Siro football stadium, they share the ground with cross-town rivals AC Milan. This rivalry plays host to the highly-anticipated Derby della Madonnina twice each season, in which the team’s face each other at the San Siro. For home fixtures the stadium is a sea of the blue and black Inter Milan home jersey as fans turn out in their droves to support the eighteen time Serie A champions.
Nike Inter Milan Home Kit
Since 1998 the infamous Nike Swoosh has adorned the Internazionale home shirt. During their tenure as kit manufacturer for Inter, Nike has retained the iconic blue and black vertical striped colour scheme. The home shirt is usually accented with yellow, white or gold and often it is the neckline that changes to introduce a new and modern feel each season.
On occasion, Nike has experimented more widely for example with a pinstripe jersey in 2014 and stripes of varying widths in the 2017/18 home football shirt. Do you have a favourite Inter Milan home jersey? Look us up on social media and share a picture of your favourite shirt with us.
