MILAN – Inter Academy‘s latest venture is forging ahead. Following the success of F.C. Internazionale football schools in Abu Dhabi and Seattle, the final selection phase of project India – organised with Tata Tea Jaago Re – will take place in Calcutta between 16 and 23 May.
10,000 under-15s from 1,000 schools across 15 cities have been seen and whittled down to the most promising 40 kids. Over the next week Inter Academy technical director Marco Monti and Massimo Ciocci will hand-pick the best 16 to take back to the Nerazzurri youth academy base in Milan. There, at the Centro Sportivo Giacinto Facchetti, the lucky few will prepare for and play a friendly against the Nerazzurri Under-15 side.
