We have clean slate now , 40 Million to spend. If Berlu contributes around 10M and we sell off the oldies and Gain another 5 or 10 , we might just see a better team.
if we were to build a stadium ...capicity????
55000 sounds good
milan regularly attracted 60k a game before 2 years ago. And if you go back to mid90s it was 70k a game.
blaah milan desperately need there own stadium BUT it's so hard to wanna leave the san siro. Too much history
It's a disgrace that Silvio spends hundreds of thousands on women to keep his affairs secret and buy them presents. Yet our beloved club suffers. The ultras are right, he must leave!!!
the man made this club this big, it his money its his club and its his whores, we can only hope for a better future
san siro is our home, city mincipality should fuckoff from there along with snakes
Milan was a big club before Berlusconi ever came along. I do not give a damn what he did for the club 10 years ago, or even 3. He is in no position to own a football club right now, so we as the fans can demand that he sell.
He can say that, but if you want to say that to the curva... go ahead
Already did.He can say that, but if you want to say that to the curva... go ahead
lol he is pm of a country he hold entire commie back,lol curva is only a bunch of football fans they are not even close to roma nazio or napoli ultras
berlusconis is hugely underrated in ths forum
Sponsorship, especially in the form of logos on jerseys, has become a part of football culture. Think of Liverpool FC in this generation, for example, and it is difficult not to see swirly white letters spelling “Carlsberg” on Robbie Fowler’s or Steven Gerrard’s shirt. But football sponsorship, of course, offers much more than sentimental or aesthetic value.
In an increasingly dicey financial era for football clubs, precious few can claim to be safe from potential disaster. Even the richest and most powerful clubs in the country are burdened with debt and astronomical wage bills. Sponsorship deals are a crucial source of income for football clubs, and the clubs that associate themselves with the highest bidders will have a better chance of surviving a tumultuous time in a dangerous business. For sponsors, football can be an extremely effective boost for brand recognition.
Here are the 10 highest grossing deals to date: -
1. Manchester United and Nike - £302.9m over 13 years
The biggest of all club-level football sponsorship deals was agreed in 2002 between Nike and Manchester United. Nike replaced Umbro as United’s kit provider, agreeing to pay United a staggering £302.9m. The mammoth deal involves control of United’s global licensing and retail operations shifting to the sportswear company, while the football club will share half of the profits, provided that they stay in European football and finish in the top half of the league. It is hard to see them failing to do that in the near future.
2. Juventus and Tamoil - £165m over 10 years
At the time of its agreement, in 2005, the potential ten-year shirt naming rights deal (worth £75m over the first five years, and £90m if renewed for the next five) between Juventus and Libyan-owned oil company, Tamoil, was claimed to be the biggest in football history. However, it was penned little more than a year before the calciopoli corruption scandal exploded in Italy. Juventus, deemed the guiltiest of many guilty parties, were banished to serie B, and Tamoil promptly called a halt to their support for la vecchia signora. The Turin club had managed to recoup only £24m from the before the deal was called off.
3. Barcelona and Nike - £131 over five years
For over a century, Barcelona had refused to be tempted by the potential benefits of displaying a commercial logo on their kits. In 2006, rather than caving in, they decided to donate the front of their shirts to UNICEF, the children’s charity. Not only that, but they pay over £1m annually for the privilege. Just as well that, soon afterwards, they managed to secure a very favourable deal with their kit manufacturer, Nike, worth over £26m per year. This was at once a masterful PR coup and a refreshingly generous act by the European champions.
4. Chelsea and Adidas - £100m over 10 years
Chelsea have been accused of underperforming in the league table for sponsorship revenue. Certainly, the deal with shirt sponsors Samsung, while recently renewed and improved, still falls short of providing the Blues with revenue similar to that generated by Liverpool and Manchester United’s new deals. In 2006 the then chief executive Peter Kenyon negotiated the £10m per year contract with Adidas. It wasn’t all good news, though. Chelsea had five years left of a contract with Umbro, and getting out of it cost them £24.5m.
5. Arsenal and Fly Emirates - £100m over 15 years
So far, the biggest naming rights (as opposed to kit manufacturer) deal likely to be realised is between Arsenal and Dubai-owned airline Fly Emirates. It is worth a massive £100m, and includes naming rights on Arsenal’s shirts as well as their new state-of-the-art stadium. It may not, however, be the best deal as far as the club is concerned. Announced in October, 2004, it lasts 15 years, earning Arsenal a relatively unimpressive £6.7m per year. Relative, that is, to the yearly sponsorship income of rival top-four clubs Chelsea, Liverpool and Man United.
6. Liverpool and Standard Chartered Bank - £81m over four years
If Liverpool are failing to compete for the Premier League title, at least they are more than holding their own in sponsorship revenue, even if this comes at the expense of their long-standing relationship with Carlsberg. At the beginning of next season we will see an end to Liverpool’s 18-year association with the lager, whose logo has become synonymous with the club’s red (and green, yellow, white, black and beige) football shirts. Standard Chartered will fork out over £20m every year for pride of place on the Reds’ jerseys.
7. Manchester United and Aon Corporation - £80m over four years
United’s current four-year deal worth £58m with American insurer AIG lasts until the end of the current season. After being crippled by a liquidity crisis, and receiving a £109bn US government bailout, AIG decided not to renew their partnership with United. It worked out well for the Premier League champions, who managed to switch to an even more valuable sponsorship with another American insurance group in the form of Aon Corp. The Aon logo will appear on the shirts next season, since the AIG-sponsored shirts for 2009/10 had already been manufactured by the time the agreement was made.
8. Bayern Munich and Deutsche Telekom - £72m over three years
It is hard to know the precise figures for this one, since the deal is said to be highly performance-related. Still, last year’s runners-up in the Bundesliga, Bayern, could potentially receive more per year from Deutsche Telekom than Manchester United and Liverpool will from their recent deals. After speculation that car manufacturer Audi was prepared to come in with a huge £90m bid, Bayern eventually accepted an offer from Deutsche Telekom and kept the company’s T-Home brand name on their shirts. The renewed German partnership is set to last until the end of the 2012/13 season.
9. Real Madrid and Bwin - £54.9m over three years
If anyone needs a good sponsorship deal, it’s the team that recently forked out the world record transfer fee of £80m for Cristiano Ronaldo. And the Galacticos haven’t had the best of luck. The club agreed a deal in 2006 with Taiwanese mobile phone company, BenQ, reportedly worth more than Juventus’ Tamoil deal a year earlier. BenQ, though, soon went bankrupt and called an end to its sponsorship. Austrian betting provider Bwin began sponsoring Real Madrid in 2007. In September of last year the deal was extended, and is now worth an estimated £18.3m per year until 2013.
10. AC Milan and Fly Emirates - £52m over five years
After Paris St Germain in France, Hambourg in Germany, Arsenal in England and Olympiakos in Greece, Fly Emirates has recently announced a huge new sponsorship deal with the Rossoneri. Emirates are fast becoming the biggest name in football sponsorship, and this deal will be worth at least £52m, plus performance-related bonuses, according to AC Milan Vice president Adriano Galliani. Galliani also insisted that there are no plans to rename the San Siro, which I’m sure comes as a relief to Inter fans.
Milan CEO Adriano Galliani Underlines Need For New Stadia In Italy
Galliani wants new stadiums as he looks at the German model...

Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has raised fresh questions over Serie A's stadia, and he is ready to pull out all the stops to help develop ideas for new venues.
Milan and Inter currently pay €8.2 million per annum to rent the Giuseppe Meazza stadium, which is owned by the local authority.
But Galliani has highlighted the need for transition to club-owned stadia - a common feature of thriving Bundesliga and Premier League sides - as he looks at the socio-economic angle.
"Our stadiums are old and uncomfortable. Look at Bayern Munich for example, since they built a new stadium their revenue has increased by €60m," Galliani told the press.
"I understand that it's comfortable for the council to make us and Inter pay rent, but if we want to compete we have to change perspective.
"A new stadium is essential for a club that wants to compete in future."
thats the issue. Milan NEED to own there stadium, end of story, it's way too much money they are losing.....
but they dont wanna give up history. They have wanted to buy san siro and renovate BUT city council isnt interested in selling cause they make more this way. Collecting 16 mil in rent a year (plus other events)
printer is building their own stadium because fossil fuels are going to get extinct in a while. Morrati actually have a brain
how much(more ) money are we getting from the new Lega Calcio system from next year on????
