Together with UMBRAGROUP, the Valter Baldaccini Foundation and ASD Cannara we have given life to the wonderful initiative “A goal for Valter” which is very dear to me. Collaborating under the common denominator of football, which is still the most loved sport, makes me happy and proud to have supported what my father always believed in: the great value of young people - says Antonio Baldaccini, CEO of UMBRAGROUP - I firmly believe - continues the CEO - in the socio-educational strength of sport in general and these three days of football will be an opportunity for excitement, fun, healthy competition and great fair play".
"I immediately welcomed with emotion and enthusiasm the idea of Angelo Mattonelli, General Manager of ASD Cannara, to organize a tournament and an educational moment dedicated to my father - commented Beatrice Baldaccini, President of the Valter Baldaccini Foundation - For my father Valter, the game of football was always a great passion, a terrain where profound values are brought into play such as friendship and respect for one's teammates, for the opponents, for the referee and among the fans. Because it is above all through play that we learn to live in the society we belong to. Having the opportunity to participate as a Foundation in these days is a source of great pride for us and also a source of healthy fun".
All events will take place in compliance with the ministerial decrees on anti-Covid 19.
