North winners AC Milan trip

25th February 2012

Four lucky customers from our northern dealers joined Fassi to watch AC Milan play Juventus in front of 80,000 fans at the San Siro stadium.

We arrived at the ground two hours before kick off to soak up the atmosphere whilst enjoying a drink & buffet in Fassi's own skybox. With a sell out 80,000 fans packed into the San Siro to watch the two teams currently first & second in Serie A there was a cup final feel to the occasion. We were blessed with one of the most exciting games of the season so far with goals & drama in equal measure. 

For our customers & dealers alike this was truly a night to remember. The lucky winners were:

Nigel Turner / Adlington Welding Supplies / F360DXP.25
Stuart Rawcliffe / J B Rawcliffe & Sons / F660AXP.24
Alan MacLean / Ord Industrial Supplies / F455RA.2.25
Julian Lowe / Matlock Transport / F235A.0.24

The next morning we travelled to Bergamo, the home of Fassi cranes. We rode the Ferniculare railway up into the mediaeval old town where we enjoyed a drink in the spring sunshine before dinner in the renowned Gourmet restaurant.

Our final day was spent touring the Fassi factory & enjoying lunch with the founder of Fassi cranes, Mr Franco Fassi & the CEO Giovanni Fassi.

Match report: AC Milan 1 Juventus 1

Milan stay on top of the table with a draw against Juventus. Matri’s goal cancels out Nocerino’s at the end of the match but by that stage Milan would have been 2 0 up if not for a clamorous error of judgment by the referee who disallowed a goal by Muntari.
