Italian giants, AC Milan have joined forces with Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and his agency Roc Nation, following the success of their ‘From Milan With Love’ event.
The club teamed up with the £75million management agency to honour and pay tribute to key workers in Italy. All of the money raised at the event – which was hosted by DJ Khaled – was donated to charity.
The star-studded line-up included the likes of Alicia Keys, Kelly Rowland and Robin Thicke.
It has now been confirmed that AC Milan and Roc Nation have formed a partnership – which has promised to “excite and surprise” the Italian club’s fans.
