Italian federation gets on board with train operator Trenitalia

November 12 – The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) has partnered with the country’s leading train operator Trenitalia in an official sponsorship that will see the train operator transport all national teams to home matches.

The company’s flagship train, the high speed Frecciarossa, will become the official train of the national team including the women’s team and the under-21s.

Italy play World Champions Germany in their next home game November 15 in Milan.

No figure has been announced for the deal.

The Italian federation has increased its sponsorship activity in recent months, having announced Eni, an oil and gas company, as a major partner sponsoring all of the country’s national teams earlier this year.

That deal was concluded just before the 2016 Euros and runs until the end of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
