MILAN – South America is again painted black and blue with the opening of Inter Academy Chile.
The new project is the result of a partnership with Soccer Camps United SpA - a Chilean company under the Holland-based Soccer Camps United B.V. founded by Jelle Beuker and Guido Ben Boubaker - who specialise in organising football schools in collaboration with professional clubs.
Inter Academy Chile aims to develop a network of football schools in the country, giving young Chilean players the opportunity to train and grow with Inter’s philosophy.
"The birth of this new partnership represents an important step in Inter Academy’s expansion in South America," said Alessandro Antonello, CEO of FC Internazionale Milano. "The launch of a new project in Chile, a country that has always had strong ties with football and the Nerazzurri colours, is really pleasing for us and we are happy to be able to start this new adventure alongside a partner with such great experience in the field like Soccer Camps United”.
Felipe Norambuena, CEO of Soccer Camps United Chile, said: “We are honoured to be working with Inter Milan, a club with a great tradition of Chilean players. With the opening of this Academy we want to bring together the Nerazzurri community in Chile, with the hope of growing the fanbase in our country."
The project will start this October in Santiago before extending throughout Chile. It will be supervised by the Inter Academy staff, who will follow the project and pay close attention to the training of local coaches and young players.
