The tire plant will launch the non-commercial football project “Internazionale” in Voronezh – this was reported by CEO of the plant Yury Gribanov during his meeting with the city Mayor Alexander Gusev on Thursday, April 3.

“Inter Campus” is a non-commercial social project of the Milan football club founded by the president of the Italian team Massimo Moratti in 1996. The project allows disadvantaged children and orphans to train under the supervision of professional trainers. The campus specialists have worked in Angola, Tunisia, Paraguay, Cambodia, Bulgaria, Cuba and other countries.

In the end of March, the “Inter Campus” delegation spent three days at Voronezh’s Boarding School No.1 for Orphaned Children and Children left without Parental Care. After that, the project specialists organized training sessions in Bobrov for the local children and gave them kits of the Italian club uniform– this was reported on the official “Inter Campus” website.

The Voronezh Tire Plant is a joint enterprise of the international company “Pirelli” and “Rostech” state corporation. Pirelli has been the title sponsor of F.C. “Internazionale Milano” since 1995. After signing the contact with the tire producing company, the Italian football club has become a five-time winner of the Italian Football Championship, a four-time winner of the Italy Cup and a one-time winner of the UEFA Cup, The League of Champions and the FIFA Club World Cup. For the last 20 years, the “Inter” uniform has been worn by such football players as Ronaldo, ZlatanIbrahimović, Luís Figo, Christian Vieri, Fabio Cannavaro, Andrea Pirlo and Javier Zanetti.
