It’s been a long time coming for Tuscans to get their first taste of Euro 2016, but a long-awaited qualifier between Tuscant and Tuscana in Italy is finally on track.
Tuscana’s match against Tuscan side Tuscani will be held on February 9 at 1.30pm CET (1830 GMT).
Toca-Bicocca, who are based in Florence, are the first team to play the game and the two sides have already begun to build up a momentum ahead of the big day.
“I am delighted to have received this opportunity and to finally be able to play in the European Championship,” Toca-Calci, who also play in Serie A, said in a statement.
“It is the perfect occasion to show our fans our loyalty and our appreciation for the great fans in Tuscania.”
The two teams have met twice in the past, once in Toca Calci’s first league season in 2011 and again in their first season in Serie B in 2012.
“This is a new chapter in our history,” Tuscian Coach Mariano Raffaele told Tuttosport.
“This is an important step in our development.
We are very pleased to play for the first time in the Euros and we will work hard to prepare for the competition.”
Toccans are aiming to secure a first ever win in the tournament.
A win would put them on track to reach the semi-finals and also ensure they finish in the top four of their group and get into the final stage.
The match will be broadcast live on Toca BicocCA.
