Associazione Calcio Milan are an Italian professional football club based in Milan, Lombardy. The club was founded as Milan Foot-Ball and Cricket Club in 1899 and has competed in the Italian football league since the following year. Milan currently play in the Serie A, the top tier of Italian football. They have been out of the top tier only twice in their history. They have also been involved in European football ever since they became the first Italian club to enter the European Cup in 1955.

This list encompasses the major honours won by Milan, records set by the club, its managers and its players. The player records section includes details of the club's leading goalscorers and those who have made most appearances in first-team competitions. It also records notable achievements by Milan players on the international stage.

The club currently shares with Internazionale the record for the second most Italian top-flight titles (Scudetti) with 18, behind Juventus' 30, and also holds the record for the most European Cup victories by an Italian team, winning the competition seven times. Furthermore, Milan is one of the only two teams (along with Juventus) to have won the Serie A without losing a game, doing so in 1991-92 during a 58-match unbeaten run. The club's record appearance maker is Paolo Maldini, who has made 902 official appearances between 1985 and 2009. Gunnar Nordahl is the club's record goalscorer, scoring 221 goals during his Milan career.
