MILAN – Inter Academy has consolidated its presence in the Middle East with the launch of Inter Academy Dubai.
The new project in the UAE has been made possible thanks to a partnership with Team Mind Sports Academy LLC, a start-up created with the goal of providing training for local children and young people and running football-related activities in the local area. Through Inter Academy Dubai, that dream is now set to become a reality: the youngsters will have the possible to train according to the elevated technical and ethical standards synonymous with Inter, supported by Inter Academy coaches and their local instructors, who will themselves receive training from Inter staff.
Partnering with an already established local organization will also further facilitate the development of the Inter brand in the UAE.
“The opening of this new Inter academy in Dubai is a move of strategic importance for us, reflecting the club’s continuing international development in a key market like the UAE,” said FC Internazionale Milano CEO Corporate Alessandro Antonello. “We’re delighted to be embarking on this new adventure alongside Team Mind Sports Academy, who share our club’s passion for training and educating young people.”
Team Mind Sports Academy LLC Chairman Yousuf Ali Behzad also commented on the partnership: “I am really delighted to sign a partnership with one of the biggest names in world football. I am sure Inter Academy Dubai will be a success as we are working with a top-class partner with extensive experience in educating and training young footballers around the world. We are looking forward to delivering world-class programmes through highly qualified coaches from Inter, providing detailed assistance and care for both UAE young players and families who can access our state-of-the-art facilities. I’m looking forward to starting this amazing journey with the Nerazzurri, champions of Serie A!”
Training activities are scheduled to launch in September. They will be supervised by staff from Inter Academy, who will be working closely with the project to assist with training the local coaches and young players.
