The 1908–09 season was the first competitive season for Internazionale, which was founded in Milan on 9 March 1908.

Season[edit]

Internazionale played its first match on 18 October 1908, facing Milan in Switzerland in a friendly in which they lost 2–1,[2] its first official match was again a derby - about three months later - valid for the qualifications to the domestic championship[2]: this resulted in a second loss, with a 3–2 score for the cross-city rivals.[2] After two weeks, losing also with U.S. Milanese (2–0), the newborn club failed to qualify for the final stage.[2]
