MILAN – After its recent summer opening in the United States, Inter is consolidating its brand presence in China with the expansion of the Inter Academy global network. The third Chinese Inter Academy centre is now opening in the city of Fuzhou, in collaboration with Fujian Tiandaoyuan Investment Co., Ltd.

The new project, which is the first opening in China since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, will be operational as of early October and will join Inter Academy Hong Kong, opened in 2018, and Inter Academy Yihai-Beijing, inaugurated in 2016. The network with local schools now spans over 1,000 children between the ages of six and 15.

The new Academy, which is on a five-year contract, will be overseen by Inter coaches from Milan, who are entrusted with instilling their expertise throughout the new facility.

“The inception of this new partnership is a significant step forward as part of Inter Academy’s plans for expansion in China. It is proof of how attractive this club is in a market that is of strategic importance to us. China is the home of our shareholders. We were the first Italian club to play in the country and now we have around 150 million Chinese supporters. We’re therefore delighted to be embarking on this new adventure in collaboration with a noteworthy partner such as Fujian Tiandaoyuan Investment Co.,Ltd.”

Alessandro Antonello, CEO Corporate FC Internazionale

“Today we’re honoured to announce the official founding of Inter Academy Fuzhou. This is such an important project for us because there are so many fans and football lovers in this city who have always followed Inter passionately. Based on the guidelines of Inter Academy, this project aspires to cover the whole area of our city. The main aim is to develop our youngsters not just as footballers, but also as men and women. We’d like to thank Inter once again for choosing us. We’ll do everything in our power to develop this project to its fullest.”

Hu Lei, president of Fujian Tiandaoyuan Investment Co.,Ltd
