Football star Hasan Salihamidžić, UEFA Champions League winner with Bayern Munich in 2001, will be starring at the Costa Smeralda Invitational 2017 between the 16 and 18th of June in Sardinia, Italy.
Salihamidzic will be joined by his former Bayern Munich team-mate Michael Ballack, as well as other footballing greats such as Gianfranco Zola and Roberto Di Matteo at the stunning Pevero Golf Club. More exciting big-names from the world of sports and entertainment will be announced in the next days. They will be all coming together to raise money for The Global Gift Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to create a positive impact on the lives of children, women and families who are in need.
Salihamidžić, who enjoyed a glittering club career with four seasons at Italian giants Juventus and nine years at Bayern Munich (where he won six Bundesliga titles and a Champions League), said “I’m really looking forward to competing in the Costa Smeralda Invitational and playing at the magnificent Pevero Golf Club”.
This year all the CSI golfers will be challenged by the world’s greatest-ever female golfer Annika Sorenstam at the Pevero Golf Club, one of the most breath-taking golf courses in the world. During the competition there will be a number of fun challenges for the stars to take on, as well as an exclusive partner’s programme.
For the first time at Costa Smeralda, former Wimbledon champion and straight-talking tennis expert Pat Cash will host an exclusive tennis clinic at the Cervo Tennis Club in the exclusive resort of Porto Cervo. Following the coaching session, there will be a doubles tournament hosted by the Australian legend.
After a day filled with sporting activities, all the CSI guests and their partners will enjoy a fabulous Gala Dinner held at the magnificent Hotel Cala di Volpe. The evening will end with a charity auction to raise funds for the official Costa Smeralda Invitational charity, The Global Gift Foundation.
