Pulcino d’Oro for this edition wants to give a signal of trust and restart, especially to children, those 10 and 11 year olds, who paid a particularly high price during the lockdown caused by the pandemic that has shocked the world. Not being able to see their teammates without having the opportunity to chase the ball penalized them beyond measure. For this reason, the Organizing Committee of presidents Renzo Merlino and Sandro Beretta wants to see the baby players of the 48 teams taking part in the event take to the field, making them return to everyday life, so that it is as beautiful and safe as possible. Young players aged 10 and 11: the choice of age is not left to chance by the organization, the Beginners age boys will be at the start, because Pulcino d’Oro has not forgotten about them and the fact that in the last edition have not been able to live a unique experience, as only this event can give.

In these editions, all the most important Italian professional clubs participated, including Juventus FC, FC Inter, AS Roma, Torino FC, Lazio SS, FC Hellas Verona to name a few, and foreign clubs of the caliber of Leeds United, Sunderland and FC Porto, Sporting Lisbon. Not only that, the best Italian and European amateur nurseries will also be present in a sporting confrontation made up of hundreds of competitions and thousands of participating children.

Il Pulcino d’Oro revolves around three key words, Sport – Children – Solidarity, every decision, every action, is preordained to respect these three cornerstones. Attention to planning each new edition respecting the initial dictates is one of the commitments and at the same time the secrets that have made this football tournament for children the most appreciated by sports clubs in Italy. Through Sport, in its purest meaning, that of children, we have set ourselves the goal of creating an event that has the ambition of transmitting positive messages in a world in which too often negative events and facts come to the fore.

As in 2018 and 2019, there will be four days of event, which will open on Thursday 2 September with the first matches, on Friday 3 September it will be the turn of the opening ceremony and the parade of the participating teams for the center of Levico Terme, for that which is considered one of the most exciting moments of the event. On Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th September, the competitions in which the top clubs come into play will arrive, with the matches that will determine who will raise Pulcino d’Oro, Pulcino d’Argento, Pulcino di Bronzo, Pulcino Gialloblù and the four Arcobaleno Pulcino.
