Bianconeri + All Blacks = All Blacks & White. This is how the charity initiative by Iveco, which united Juventus and the New Zealand rugby national team, was called.
The All Blacks & White Foundation will receive the funds generated from a charity auction on “ebay” which will have the jerseys of Juventus and the All Blacks autographed by Del Piero and McCaw as a prize .
While taking advantage of the All Blacks Italian tour (On Saturday there is the friendly match against Italy in Milan), Iveco – a company which forms part of the FIAT group and which is the sponsor of the team from Oceania – wanted to represent the project by means of a press conference held at the Juventus Center in Vinovo which saw the participation of the two captains, Alessandro Del Piero and Ritchie McCaw, Marco Fassone (Juventus commercial director), Dario Destefanis (FIAT Group sponsoring manager), Franco Miniero (Iveco sales and marketing vice-president) and Daniele Farina, the person responsible for the “Crescere Insieme al Sant’Anna” project which is the co-protagonist of the initiative.
This is the not the only initiative. During the training session held this morning, Ciro Ferrara’s team entered the field wearing technical gear sponsored by Iveco instead of the usual New Holland.
The same will apply to the next match, that on Sunday 22nd November against Udinese. The bianconeri will play on this special and unique occasion sporting a grey away Nike shirt sponsored by Iveco. The shirt was presented during the meeting
