July 17 – Inter Milan, who have expanded their academy concept to more than 21 sites worldwide, has launched a series of virtual meetings giving youngsters at Inter Academy and Inter Campus projects the chance to talk to former club stars.
Inter Academy Toronto began the project on June 29 with kids spending the afternoon with Christian Chivu on the video-call, while this week Javier Zanetti was online with club projects in Argentina.
Inter say that about 300 boys and girls will participate in the online call in the coming weeks.
“The aim of Inter Calling Kids is to maintain Inter’s bond with children from the two programmes during the global coronavirus emergency, when they are unable to train. It also helps to strengthen links between Inter Academy and Inter Campus,” said an Inter press release.
“The initiative is part of a series of activities that Inter Academy is running for its partners around the world and provides Inter Campus with the opportunity to add valuable experience to its weekly educational programmes.”
