MILAN – This year’s edition of the Milan School Cup has begun!On Sunday the 29th of March at 14.00, the cup competition between primary schools from Milan and the local areas started at the Cimiano Sports Centre, home to the Milan Soccer School and Technical Centre.Youth Team coach Cristian Brocchi along with youth players Mario Piccinocchi and Davide Di Molfetta were all on hand to mark the occasion. The Milan School Cup will be played out every Sunday over the next 2 months until the finals, which are scheduled for the 31st of May. The finals will be played out at one of the rossoneri centres such as Milanello.The Milan Junior Project is a big backer of this initiative dedicated to primary schools and believes in the educational role that sport can play in children’s lives. The participation of hundreds of school children for the 2015 edition of the Milan School Cup is confirmation once again of the popularity of the initiative and demonstrates how sport can be used as a means for inclusion and promoting important values.There will be 5 different age groups taking part in the school tournament. Each squad is made up of 5 to 8 children (boys and girls) of the same age and from the same school, but not necessarily from the same class. Matches will be 5 v 5 without goalkeepers and with rolling subs. In addition, matches will be refereed amongst themselves in order to encourage healthy competition and fair play.Registration is free and can be done via the website by filling out the appropriate form.
