The Pulcino d'Oro speaks English with Leeds

25 May 2018

The International Pulcino d’Oro Tournament widens its borders even further and opens its doors to England and to Leeds United, one of the historic teams of the British football panorama. Leeds completes the lot of the twelve professional teams competing in fourth edition of the event reserved for young players in the Pulcini category, and will be held in Valsugana, Trentino, from 14 to 17 June.

The club boasts three national titles, the last one won in the 1991/1992 season, and then an FA Cup, a League Cup and two Community Shields, to which are added important trophies conquered internationally. At the turn of the sixties and seventies, Leeds established itself as one of the best European teams, winning two editions of the Fairs Cup (1968 and 1971), followed by the Champions Cup (1975) and the European Cup Winners’ Cup (1973).

In the upcoming month of June, the baby footballers of the English club will be in Trentino to participate in the fourth edition of the tournament organised by the Unione Sportiva Levico Terme as the highly-anticipated protagonists, together with the other 11 participating top clubs and 36 Italian amateur teams present.

In the meantime as the list of Italian amateur teams is officialised, Leeds United completes the lot of the twelve professional teams ready to compete, joining the Portuguese Porto and Sporting Lisbon, along with the major Italian football teams Juventus, Inter, Roma, Torino, Sampdoria, Hellas Verona, Cesena and Parma, the latter newly promoted to Serie A – and without forgetting Südtirol.
