Winners' Cup

In 2017, Inter Milan organised for the first time a soccer tournament: teams of adolescents and young adults who survived cancer would compete against each other.

The tournament was organised with the aim to shed a light on the specific needs of adolescents and young adults with cancer (15 to 24 or 26 years). The care facilities are less adapted to their psychosocial needs because they are stuck between two age groups (infancy and adults).

As a result, some adolescents and young adults have a lower cure rate than children with the same malignancy.

These infrastructures must also allow these patients to meet their peers with whom they can share their experience.
