MILAN - Brothers Universally United, Inter’s campaign to send out a strong message against all forms of discrimination, is being backed up by another very important initiative this evening: the Primo Anello at San Siro will be filled with more than 10,000 children from Scuole Calcio Inter (Nerazzurri Youth Development Centres and Inter Grassroots Program affiliated with FIGC), the Centro Sportivo Italiano and schools in Milan.
"This needs to be a day when the true educational values of sport are transmitted, and I would like to thank Inter for seizing this opportunity," said Marco Bussetti, Minister of Education, University and Research. "We want our children to be ambassadors in terms of showing respect – healthy support is supporting your own team, not abusing the opposition. Tonight needs to be a great party and an unforgettable evening so as to give a positive example to all."
"I would like to thank all those who have joined us in our BUU, Brothers Universally United campaign," added the Corporate CEO of FC Internazionale Milano, Alessandro Antonello. "We are receiving support across the board – many have echoed our message. Immediately after the match against Napoli, there was a moment of reflection and the club's desire to send a positive message was very strong.
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Minister of Education, University and Research, who gave us the opportunity to have many school children at San Siro. It is important to send out this message to young people because they are the future. By setting an example of what positive support is and respecting the values of sport, we are sure that things can improve. We hope it will be an evening filled with joy."
