Unione Sportiva Milanese was an Italian association football club from Milan founded on 16 January 1902.[1] Nicknamed Gli Scacchi ("The Checkerboards") for their jersey, the club was runners-up in the 1908 and 1909 Italian football championships.[2] In 1928, the Fascist government forced the club to merge with Internazionale which was renamed S.S.
