Inter Campus was founded in 1997 by FC Internazionale Milan. The program uses soccer as an educational tool to help needy children between 6 and 13 years old have the “right to play.” The program is present in 29 different countries.

Pirelli has a rich heritage in sports, having participated in and supported a variety of sports at the highest level for over 100 years,” said Paolo Ferrari, CEO and chairman of PTNA.

“More importantly, we believe in the values and positive benefits of sport – teamwork, passion, mental/physical health, discipline and purpose – so supporting Inter Campus and their honorable mission was a natural fit,” he added.

Sponsored by Pirelli, Inter Campus USA will be managed by the Youri Djorkaeff Foundation, an organization ran by former FC Internazionale and French soccer player.
