      This morning, the presentation of the second edition of the tournament, held at Bettinelli Sport Center of Milan, saw Gianluca Pessotto deliver the uniforms to Pinerolo, who now take the field with the Bianconeri colors and will be named Juventus Special: "It's extraordinary to see how much passion and emotion these guys live in sport," said Pessotto. "We are happy to have joined this project, to have adopted Pinerolo FD and to help the kids to demonstrate what really makes them special."

      In addition to Juventus, the tournament featured Brescia, Chievo, Feralpisalò, Fiorentina, Inter, Milan, Monza, Novara, Reggiana, Sassuolo, Turin, Udinese and Venice. Players were given the AIC cards and the Italian Footballers Association and afterwards, General Director of Serie A Marco Brunelli officially kicked off the tournament with matches of 30 minutes featuring unlimited substitutions.
