The players and management of the AS Monaco Football Club were welcomed to a luncheon on Monday, March 6, at the residence of the Minister of State to mark the partnership agreement signed at the beginning of the season between the Prince’s Government and the Principality’s football club.

Minister of State, Serge Telle, encouraged the team before the much-anticipated home game in the Champions League against Manchester City that takes place on March 15. He said that the club represents an important part of the Monegasque identity and that, especially this season, it gives immense pleasure through its exceptional sporting achievements.

Vadim Vasilyev, Club Vice-President and General Director, on behalf of the club and its President, Mr Dmitry Rybolovlev, thanked the Government of Monaco for its daily support in achieving the highest goals. He also recalled that the club has a role as Ambassador of the Principality and takes pride in wearing its colours.

Mr Vasilyev concluded by hoping that the Principality will be even more proud of its players at the end of the season.
