Inter release official statement to stand out against racism

27 December at 19:48
Inter have released an official statement to stand out against racism after the abuse of some of their fans against Kalidou Koulibaly during Inter-Napoli last night: 

"In response to the events that took place during Inter vs. Napoli on Wednesday evening and the consequent decision reached by the Lega Nazionale's Sports Court for Serie A, the Club would like to reaffirm that since 9 March 1908, Inter has represented integration, hospitality and progressiveness.

These characteristics have defined the history of Milan – a city that stands for inclusion and respect.

Together with our city, we have always been fighting to help create a future free of discrimination. We are committed to promoting these values wherever we operate and they have always been a source of pride for the Club.

Inter is present in 29 countries across the world, from Cambodia to Colombia, working with thousands of children involved in the Inter Campus project. The aim is to restore the right to play for those who are often in precarious circumstances – the importance of such activities has also been recognized by the United Nations.

From that night 110 years ago when our founders set us on our journey, we have always said no to any form of discrimination.

That is why we feel obliged today, once again, to reiterate that anyone who does not understand or accept our history – this Club’s history – is not one of us".
