Just returned from our first trip to Italy since we acquired an ownership interest in SS Campobasso. There were so many incredible memories from the trip; including heartwarming interactions with fans and merchants, sponsor meetings, facility tours and stadium visits, and sessions with government leadership to discuss long-term investment plans.
Most importantly, the trip was safe and secure for everyone involved. Hats off to everyone who ensured both the safety of our team and the safety of all the people with whom we met while were in Italy.
There were literally too many great experiences to write about, so we figured we would let the pictures do all the talking. As if we weren’t excited enough already, the trip made us truly motivated to build a winner for fans of the “Underdogs” of SS Campobasso across the world for many years to come!
Hope you enjoy the photo album from our trip!
