Roma launch women’s team

Roma have officially confirmed that they’ll enter a women’s team into next season’s Serie A femminile.

Milan officially confirmed this week that they’d launch a female team, joining Juventus, Sassuolo, Fiorentina, Empoli, and Atalanta.

The Giallorossi were expected to follow, and this evening that has been confirmed.

“I’ve been talking with Mia Hamm, who is a member of our Board of Directors, about launching an official AS Roma women’s team for a couple of years,” President James Pallotta said.

“It’s very satisfying that we can confirm today that we’ll kick-off the new season with both a men’s and women’s Roma team.

“We have lots of girls in our coaching system and today’s announcement means that they will be able to have more opportunities to continue their football development and hopefully see a clear path through to playing professional women’s football at Roma.”
