Physical activity literacy
AC Milan is strongly convinced that the practice of sports and football can offer significant benefits in terms of education and physical and mental wellbeing. The Club has entered into positive, long-term relationships with schools, families and local sports associations.
The project, completely free of charge, is addressed to primary schools across the country and provides for AC Milan’s coaches to work alongside the P.E. teachers of the schools involved. The goal is to spread the Cub’s know-how and to encourage a more widespread awareness of a healthy sporting lifestyle, inspired by fair play and mutual respect.
Sports beyond disability: the "Fourth Category" project
Fourth Category is the first Italian 7 a-side football tournament, addressed exclusively to athletes with cognitive-relational disabilities. It’s backed by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) and supported by Lega Calcio. AC Milan actively participates in the project and supports two teams.
Visits to Milanello
AC Milan gives national social welfare institutions and special categories of supporters the chance to visit the Milanello Sports Centre and to watch the First Team’s training sessions. Every season more that 150 people have the opportunity to live this unique experience while meeting their Rossoneri heroes up-close.
Non-profit associations at San Siro
AC Milan guarantees non-profit associations and organizations the possibility to attend AC Milan's home matches for free, through a dedicated booking service for fans with disabilities.
More than 3000 tickets have been made available in the last 3 seasons, ensuring an increasing accessibility to the event for thousands of special fans.
"Mondo Milan" museum
AC Milan invites certified non-profit associations and organisations and the recipients of their services to visit, free of charge, the Mondo Milan Museum (at Casa Milan)
Agreements with hospitals
AC Milan is aware of its important role within Milan’s social fabric and collaborates with the major hospitals in the area thanks to various agreements in place.
The Club’s professionals and employees carry out volunteering activities and the project also provides for AC Milan’s footballers to visit hospitals and for the donation of tickets for the matches at San Siro.
"San Siro per Tutti" project
The collaboration with Milan’s Istituto dei Ciechi has led to the creation of an exclusive sector dedicated to blind and visually impaired people at San Siro. Dedicated stewards and a special audio description of the event ensure fans an increasingly inclusive experience at the stadium, through an almost total integration with the surrounding environment.
