“This partnership between AC Milan and Roc Nation represents the coming together of two powerful organisations with strong values at their core. Our shared commitment to inclusiveness, progressiveness and excellence will drive everything that we do and I am very excited for what’s to come.”

Michael Yormark, Co-CEO of Roc Nation Unified, added: “Roc Nation is thrilled to embark on this unique partnership with AC Milan.

“Both brands possess a strong commitment to community, which was evident through the success of ‘From Milan with Love’. I am looking forward to building on that success by creating more opportunities together that combine the integrity of the club’s rich history and Roc Nation’s signature ability to create and move culture.”

Milan actually teamed up with Roc Nation to create an event called ‘From Milan With Love’, with DJ Khaled hosting a night which included performances from Alicia Keys, Kelly Rowland, Jonas Brothers and Gavin Rossdale to raise money for those involved in the fight against COVID-19.
