NCE Italian Tour 2022

Our tour of Italy begins in Milan,  once the capital of the Western Roman Empire and home to two of the biggest clubs in global soccer.  Milan is the second most populated city in Italy and along with its famous soccer clubs it is renowned for it’s fashion houses, history, art and culture.

Every year NCE Soccer travels to this stunning soccer setting to compete in the Milano Football Festival and face off against some of the biggest clubs in the world.  In 2022 NCE Soccer will enter two representative boys teams into the U12 and U14 age bracket.

The event is sponsored by Inter Milan and provides our players with the opportunity play top quality soccer against the highest level of international opposition in one of Europe’s most beautiful locations.
