In an effort to support people across Europe who have been affected by the coronavirus and raise money for health care services, Real Madrid will be teaming up with Inter Milan and Bayern Munich for a great cause in 2021.
On Tuesday, Real Madrid announced it will be helping those affected by the worldwide pandemic in a year when quarantine is long forgotten. Although there were not many details given, Madridistas can look forward to the club playing two charity matches next year.
They along with Inter and Bayern will be playing three matches in three cities in an effort to raise money for health care workers and health care services in Italy and Spain.
The two countries have been affected the most by the spread of coronavirus and in an effort to show solidarity as well as support a great cause, these three world powers are coming together to help in the best way they can.
Real Madrid will host Inter Milan in the Santiago Bernabeu in one match, Inter will host Bayern, and finally, Bayern will host Real in this round-robin style event.
Real Madrid and Bayern have formed a close bond in recent years with the two frequently going toe-to-toe in friendly matches and in transfer dealings.
The two clubs have been participating in the Intercontinental Champions Cup in the United States for several years and Real Madrid frequently attends Bayern’s Audi Cup tournament in August before the season gets underway.
Remember, Real loaned out James Rodriguez to the Bavarians for two seasons and now have Alvaro Odriozola out on loan there now. President Florentino Perez also bought world-class midfielder Toni Kroos from Bayern shortly after winning the World Cup title in 2014.
Real has been actively helping during this crazy time by cutting player and coaching staff wages to make sure all personnel are paid their full salary and the Bernabeu has been turned into a staging area for health care supplies and medicines.
