The Fossa dei Leoni, also referred to by the acronym FdL, was an association of ultras supporters of Italian professional football club Associazione Calcio Milan. Established in 1968, it was the first ultras group to form in Italy.

The association was born originally as a group when a group of young supporters started to meet on ramp 18 of popular sectors of San Siro stadium, in Milan, wearing the uniform of A.C. Milan and taking to the stadium flags and confetti. The name was chosen due to the nickname of old A.C. Milan’s stadium.

In 1972 they moved from ramp 18 to the middle sector of the stadium. In the same year was created the hymn, inspirated to the Italian movie “L’armata Brancaleone”. In that period many Italian ultras groups going identifying themselves in different political ideas and the Fossa identified itself on to left wing, taking always at the stadiums a big banner with a picture of Che Guevara. Due to some order problems with Italian police, from 1975 to 1977 it changed its name in “Inferno Rossonero”.

In the years the Fossa became a model for lot of Italian ultras groups and in 1982 it was cited in the Italian movie “Eccezzziunale… veramente”. In that movie the starring, Diego Abatantuono, played the role of the group’s leader, named “Donato, the ras of the Fossa”.

Rivalries and friendships of Fossa dei Leoni with other groups are the same of the entire sector of A.C. Milan’s supporters.
The principal and the oldest rivalry is against supporters of Inter, the other football club in the city of Milan. Other main rivalries are against supporters of Roma (twinned since early 1980s), S.S.C. Napoli (twinned since early 1980s), Juventus, Lazio, Genoa, Verona, Atalanta, Fiorentina, Sampdoria and Cagliari.
Friendship relations of the group are with few supporters groups. The only twinnage is with the ultras of Brescia and Sevilla FC.
