UniCredit supports the Partita della Pace
The "Partita della pace", the first inter-religious football peace match will be held on September 1 in Rome: this will be an occasion for creating a unique global moment in which the greatest footballers of past and present will represent the different faiths.
UniCredit's strong belief in multiculturalism and social commitment have prompted us to sponsor the event, supported by his Holiness Pope Francis, known for being a sports fan, particularly when it comes to football.
UniCredit's sponsorship will contribute to the awareness of Partita della Pace: profits from advertising and tickets will go entirely to charity, divided between the Fondazione P.U.P.I. (the foundation Javier and Paula Zanetti's created for disadvantaged children in Argentina) and the Scholas Occurrentes (an international education network promoted by Pope Francis and the Papal Academy).
Diversity and international inclusion are strongly enshrined in our identity and history at UniCredit, as one of the largest financial institutions in Europe, with approximately 148,000 employees, a presence in over 50 countries, and direct banking services in 17 European countries.
