MILAN – Together with FC Bayern and Real Madrid, Inter will stage the "European Solidarity Cup" in 2021. The three clubs want to send a message of solidarity and use the proceeds to support medical infrastructures.
Out of solidarity and to highlight the importance of cohesion in Europe, the three clubs have agreed to stage the "European Solidarity Cup - Football for Heroes". Depending on the match calendar, and also depending on when football can be played in front of spectators again, the three teams will play against each other in 2021 in a round-robin group, with one match played in each city: Milan (Inter vs. FC Bayern), Madrid (Real vs. Inter), and Munich (FC Bayern vs. Real Madrid).
“The pandemic has hit people all over the world with great force. The great commitment of all healthcare workers has been essential to now allow us to look to the future. With this initiative we want to thank them and celebrate their work and at the same time send a message of unity and solidarity between nations,” said Steven Zhang, President of the Club.
The net proceeds from all three games will be donated to medical facilities in the three countries as a symbol of support for a united Europe in which everyone takes responsibility for each other.
