This year, for the first time, Banka Koper hosted the international sports event for the children of the Intesa Sanpaolo subsidiary bank employees, known as the “ISBD Junior Sports Event”. The event was held on 5 and 6 May 2012 in various venues at the Bonifika sports centre and was attended by as many as 300 children up to 14 years of age from:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina,
Once again, Banka Koper – both one of the subsidiary banks and a “local” – proved an excellent co-organiser and event host.
The boys and girls competed in two disciplines: football and volleyball. Another first this year was the organisation of a basketball camp led by the renowned coaches of the Emporio Armani Milan Basketball Team.
The children were excited to watch the juggling skills demonstrated by Billy Wingrove. A special guest of the tournament and currently the best football freestyler, Billy Wingrove is also the ambassador of the Milan Football Club.
