The new Training Kit will be unveiled in the coming months, as will further details on a partnership that looks to combine the physical and digital universes. During the course of this partnership, AC Milan and KONAMI will strengthen their common status as entertainment powerhouses, generating an innovative ecosystem of initiatives that will unite players and fans both on and off the pitch.

Becoming a Principal Partner of one of the biggest football clubs in Europe and also putting our brand on their training kit is an incredible opportunity.
