June was a massive month for the club, and July promises to be just as busy! Read on below to find out more about current current goings on of the club.
On 25th June, we gathered for our much anticipated "Scudetto Festa & Fondazione Milan Charity Event" at the Grosvenor Hotel in St Kilda. A big thank-you must be extended to members of the committee who were working in overdrive during the course of the month in order to ensure smooth-running of the event. It was remarkable to have so many Milanisti from all over Australia in the same room, and it was a pleasure to host Milan Clubs Sydney and Adelaide during the evening. Over the course of the evening, we raised $1750 to support the activities of Fondazione Milan from raffling the signed Ibrahimovic jersey, which will support x4 children in the Fondazione's programs over the course of the coming season. Well done, and a BIG thank you to everyone who supported the cause!
You can view the special video prepared for the evening here. Fingers-crossed that we will be hosting a similar event at the same time next year!
First ever national conference of Australian Milan Clubs
On Sunday 26th June, representatives from Milan Club Melbourne, Milan Club Sydney and Milan Tifosi Adelaide gathered for the first ever national conference of Australian Milan clubs in Melbourne at our venue, Ultra Football. It was a truly historical moment for our club, and there were many exciting and productive discussions held. We can't wait to share more updates with members shortly!
