Inter Milan will wear a special jersey with the players' names printed in Chinese Against Bologna, we'll see a special nerazzurri shirt to celebrate the imminent arrival of the Chinese Year of the Pig

It had already happened in 2017 and 2018, after the change of ownership to the Suning group, that Inter Milan had paid homage to the Chinese zodiac and specifically to the year of the Rooster and the Dog. Now it will happen again, on the occasion of the Chinese New Year (which will be next February 16th) and the beginning of the year of the Pig (which will start on February 5th). With a note on their official site, Inter has announced that on Sunday afternoon they will play in San Siro against Bologna wearing a unique jersey with Chinese characters on the back instead of the players' names. The initiative will not only regard the game: the Nerazzurri have announced that, during the match, some wish Chinese messages will appear on the LEDs on the courtside, sent by the Asian supporters through Weibo. They also announced that, in the few next days, Radja Nainggolan, Milan Skriniar, Keita Balde and Matteo Politano will be protagonists of some theme videos, some of these exclusively dedicated to the team's Chinese social channels. 

Finally, before the game starts it will be possible to buy the limited edition current season's home jersey of Mauro Icardi, Lautaro Martinez and even Radja Nainggolan, customized with the Chinese characters on the back. This also will be an exclusive for the Chinese supporters of Inter. The jersey could be bought from the team's online store, from the Inter Store and from the San Siro Store.

This important initiative shows the great closeness of the Biscione to its Chinese supporters, respecting the motto "Brothers of the World" that mark the club forever. In this way, the Nerazzurri renew the union with China that continues since 1978, when Inter was the first international professional football club to visit the Chinese territory. Forty-one years later, the story continues.
