Milanello has always been at the forefront in terms of training facilities and has been used on several occasions by the Italian Football Federation ahead of important international tournaments including the European Championships in 1988, 1996 and 2000. Milanello has six regular-size natural grass pitches, a synthetic pitch (35m. x 30), and another covered synthetic pitch (42m. x 24), there is also an outdoor grass pitch known as “the cage” as that the playing field is surrounded by a 2.30 m. wall where there is a 2,50 m. high fence. Inside “the cage” the game continues endlessly, the ball is always moving to increase the speed of handling the game. In the wood, there is a 1,200 m long path set out at different gradients and during the season it is used for physical training (jogging and cycling) and for the rehabilitation of injured players.
The main structure of the centre is made up of a building with two floors (and the basement) where there are offices, the players’ rooms, the main hall, the TV room, the billiards room; the bar, the kitchen, two dining rooms, the press room, the meeting room, the laundry room and the medical centre. Next to the main building, there is a "guest house", where some of the youth players coming from other parts of Italy or from abroad live. They attend the school in the morning and train in the afternoon.
THE DRESSING ROOM
A buidling detached by the main structure hosts the two dressing rooms (one for the first team, the other for the Primavera) and a state-of-the-art gym with Technogym last generation equipment, AC Milan's crown jewel.
The completely, newly renovated gym offers the players the high-tech Technogym branded solutions. The gym was refurbished a few years ago, adding the latest Technogym equipment, aesthetically upgraded by Technogym’s Interior Design team. Today, all international observers consider Milanello as the number one sports centre in the world. The national side used it often ahead of World Cup and European Championships matches. The facilities and state-of-the-art services promote sport meeting the highest quality criteria.
