“We are ready to embrace our community once again. The great Italian rugby family can finally return to the national side to support the Azzurri national team and we couldn’t be happier.
We’re experiencing the reboot moment from several perspectives, all exciting: the return of the audience goes hand-in-hand with the debut of a new cast, with a group of youngsters that have recently made their appearance on the demo match arena, or might deserve a first chance this fall. They will need their people, our people to support them and I know the rugby team will answer the call.
Rome and Olympico, our home, are the best possible stage for a match against the emblematic team of our sport and to celebrate together our return to live on the field and the grand world rugby party.
Treviso and Parma will give our Azzurri team the chance to play and return to win on the international stage in front of their most loyal fans, in the two stadiums they consider champions with Benetton and Zebre On weekends, strengthening the connection with our territory at two venues – also demonstrated by the recent Rugby World Cup qualification tournament in Lanfranchi and the Rainbow Cup Final – can successfully host major international events.
We have chosen three ideal cities to meet and to make the national team feel the warmth of Italian rugby, maintaining and renewing the connection with our roots, with the people of rugby. I am glad to be able to find him again very soon,” the FIR Chief announced, Marzio Innocenti.
