Thursday and Saturday in Indonesia to play two friendly matches marking the beginning of a fruitful collaboration with the Asian world.
Jakarta – Inter are going to fly to Indonesia today (Tuesday) to play two friendlies worth 2.5 million euros and to open a series of very important initiatives in marketing and building image. The Nerazzurri, overall, have a great appeal in all of Asia so much so that they were forced to give up invitation coming from India and Vietnam.
Inter fever It is not a coincidence that Jakarta is the bridge of a major project. Although there are 11 thousand kilometers between the Italy and Indonesia, Inter and the Asian country are in fact united by the affection of more than 15 million fans. A distance that will definitely canceled when the team of Stramaccioni landed tomorrow at the Soekarno Hatta Airport in Jakarta. But already the boundaries are being killed every day thanks to Inter.it and the official Facebook page of Inter. In fact, Inter official website confirms that the interest in Indonesia is truly immense. They are more than 5000 Indonesians visit indonesia.inter.it generating a traffic of 1 million page views per month. Indonesia, after Italy and United States, is third after Japan as the countries with the highest number of views on Inter.it and the same applies with the Official Facebook page of the Nerazzurri.
Not just football Outside of the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, a special village was built to entertain the fans and the two games are now sold out. The first is scheduled for Thursday 24th against a mixture of All Stars in the Indonesian Premier League and Under 23. And then on Saturday the 26th is the game against the Indonesian national team. The agenda for Inter in Indonesia will be thick beyond the commitments for these two games. After the press conference of Stramaccioni and captain Zanetti and after the first training session, that night the team will meet 500 fortunate representatives of the Inter Club Indonesia which has 15,000 members divided into 55 sections throughout the area. On Thursday morning, Inter delegation led by Ernesto Paolillo and commercial director Mario De Vivo, will be received by the highest members in the Indonesian government while on Friday the team will pay a visit to a children hospital and finish that day with a series of initiatives (perhaps meet and greet to sign autographs) with the fans outside the stadium. Sunday, before boarding the flight to Italy, there is a scheduled visit to the Italian embassy.
In and out The players will miss this tour are those that on their international duty (Sneijder, Ranocchia, Forlan, Guarin and Juan Jesus) and injured players (Castaignos, Chivu, Obi, Stankovic and Alvarez). No trip for Lucio and Zarate, both are destined to leave Inter as well as Chivu. Jonathan and Coutinho are there and other than Pazzini and Milito in the attack are Longo and Terrani.
