An unforgettable event hosted in the name of the football, and it saw many smiles and friendships formed spending many beautiful moments together. The first edition of the Juventus Academy Shanghai Cup was a great success.
Over 500 boys and girls were present, with 43 participating teams from China and Japan, including three Juventus Academies: the one that organised and hosted the tournament (Shanghai) and those of Nanjing and Suzhou. The event was also attended by the Youth Sectors of the two local professional clubs: Shanghai SIPG and Shanghai Shenhua.
The event was topped off with a special presence, that of Fabrizio Ravanelli. The Juventus Legend took part in the official presentation ceremony, and in addition to being there during the two days of the event, he was there for the closing ceremony. The great Penna Bianca was able to witness first-hand the overwhelming passion and enthusiasm of the very young Asian footballers, who took photos with Jay and with the Scudetto won by the First Team last season.
The organisation of this activity carried out in China represents a new step forward in the Juventus Academy project in the area, which has already seen the rise of two new academies last season in Suzhou and Shanghai, bringing the total number to six.
