With Inter Milan, a top Italian club announced its entry into the Esports on Tuesday. In cooperation with QLASH, the Nerazzurri have landed two professionals and now want to join FIFA and PES.
After football stars Antoine Griezmann (Grizi Esport) and Gareth Bale (Ellevens Esports) recently launched their own Esports organisations, a major club is now following suit: Inter Milan announced on Tuesday the collaboration with the Italian Esports organisation QLASH and the creation of the joint project Inter | QLASH.
In the announcement video the two Italian professionals Diego “CRAZY_FAT_GAMER” Campagnani and Luigi “Kirito_Yuuki_00″ Loffredo are shown, who will be taking over the controller for Inter in the future.
The former has already made a name for himself when he reached the grand final at the second FUT Champions Cup this season in Bucharest and lost there against the German Niklas Raseck. With Kirito_Yuuki_00, an eFootball PES professional will also wear the Inter jersey in the future.

The Series A leaders will be joined by 20-year-old central defender Alessandro Bastoni, at least in the video. Bastoni is “the natural choice to create the link between football and Generation Z,” according to Inters public announcement.
Among other things, the club plans to play in the Italian eSeries A TIM with its new Esports players. It is also expected that CRAZY, as Diego Campagnani is also known, will continue to play in the FIFA 20 Global Series.
