Italian giants Inter Milan have agreed a deal with tech firm Moovit to help fans get to and from its games around Europe.
The Serie A outfit have partnered with the world’s number one public transport app to provide detailed information to supporters about getting to stadiums, entrances and areas dedicated to them.
The app, available on Android and iOS devices in 44 languages, provides estimated times of arrival and possible diversions or changes to the transport system. It will also help tourists in Milan who are keen to take in a game at the Giuseppe Meazza stadium, which is also known as San Siro.
“This agreement with Moovit, the world’s number one public transport app, will help our fans get around cities and allow them to arrive at all the stadiums Inter are playing at, whether in Italy or Europe,” said Alessandro Antonello, the Nerazzurri’s CEO Corporate.
“Users will then be able to identify the best route to get to the Meazza, the Inter Store and all the stadiums hosting the Nerazzurri in a quick and sustainable way, with public transport and sharing available to them.
“This is an innovative agreement for the Club and something which will allow us to further improve the experience of our fans on matchdays, both when travelling to watch games and then returning home.”

Samuel Sed Piazza, Moovit’s director of partnership, added: “Inter were the team with the highest average attendance in Italy in the first half of the league season and the only Italian club to be in the top ten in Europe when it comes to attendance figures during the period from August to December 2018.
“This agreement represents an ironclad commitment by Inter in support of sustainable mobility and, for us, represents an important recognition of the work that we are doing around the world to facilitate and promote the use of alternative means of transport.”
Moovit has over 330 million users, making it the most-used app when it comes to public transport, while more than 200 cities in Italy and over 2,700 cities globally are mapped on it.
From the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016 to the 2018 Euroleague Finals, it has always had a role at major sporting events, providing its users with detailed and up-to-date information on urban mobility.
