The Trofeo Luigi Berlusconi (Luigi Berlusconi Trophy) is an annual friendly football match. It is organized by Italian club Milan, and takes place in August at the San Siro, their home stadium.

The competition was founded by Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi in memory of his father Luigi, and was originally intended to be contested by the Rossoneri and the Champions League winners. However in the first edition — which took place on 23 August 1991 — they faced Juventus instead of Red Star Belgrade. The match was won by Juventus 2–1. Over the next three years, Milan played against Internazionale, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively, winning all three times. Since 1995 the Trofeo Luigi Berlusconi has been contested between Milan and Juventus.

In 2012, the 22nd edition of the annual match was won by Juventus 3–2. In the 19 times Milan and Juventus have played each other, Juventus now holds a 10–9 edge. Overall, Milan has won the trophy 12 times.

Trivia[edit]

  • Over the years, losing the Trofeo has been a blessing in disguise to the fans for hopes during the league season, as in 7 previous matches the team defeated has then gone on to win the Scudetto
  • Coaches to have won the trophy multiple times include:
    • Carlo Ancelotti: 1999 and 2000 with Juventus and in 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 with AC Milan
    • Fabio Capello: 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1997 with Milan and 2004 with Juventus
    • Marcello Lippi: 1995, 1998, 2001 and 2003 with Juventus
  • Filippo Inzaghi is the only player to have scored in and also have won the competition with two different teams
