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.

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.
