The Trofeo Luigi Berlusconi (Luigi Berlusconi Trophy) was an annual friendly football match. It was organized by Italian club Milan, and usually was played in August at the San Siro, Milan's home stadium. It was last played in 2015.

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 UEFA 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. Between 1995 and 2012 the Trofeo Luigi Berlusconi was contested exclusively between Milan and Juventus. Due to scheduling conflicts no game was played in 2013. In the 19 times Milan and Juventus have played each other, Juventus holds a 10–9 edge.

The game returned in 2014 - the 23rd edition. It was scheduled in November, but was not played against Juventus, but and Argentinian team, San Lorenzo. Milan won the game 2–0 to earn its 13th trophy. The 24th and final edition to-date was played between Milan and Internazionale in 2015, won by Inter 1–0.

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 seven 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 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
