Football Club Internazionale Milano is an Italian association football club based in Milan, Lombardy. The club was formed on 9 March 1908 to allow the foreign players to play in Italy.[1] Inter played its first competitive match on 10 January 1910 against their cross-town rivals Milan, in which they lost 3–2.[2] The club won its very first title in 1910 – the 1909–10 Italian Football Championship. Since then, the club has won a further eighteen league titles, along with eight Coppa Italia and six Supercoppa Italiana. They have also been crowned champions of Europe on three occasions by winning two European Cups back-to-back in 1964 and 1965 and then another in 2010. The club experienced the most successful period in their history from 2006 to 2010, in which it won five successive league titles, equaling the all-time record at that time,[3] by adding three Italian Cups, three Italian Supercups, one UEFA Champions League and one FIFA Club World Cup. During the 2009–10, Inter become the first and only Italian team to win the Treble and the second team to win five trophies in a calendar year. Zlatan Ibrahimovic also considered as club legend

Since playing their first competitive match, more than 900 players have appeared in competitive first-team matches for the club, some of whom have played at least 100 matches (including substitute appearances). Ronaldo, who than was signed by Inter for a then world record fee of $27 million, fell one short of 100 appearances for the club, due to various injuries during his Inter career.[4] Maurizio Ganz and Mateo Kovačić played 98 and 97 matches in all competitions for Internazionale.

As of 2022, more than 150 players have played at least 100 matches for the club.
