AS Roma has established a comprehensive year-round partnership programme with select US-based youth clubs, all members of the U.S Soccer Development Academy, with a focus on identifying and developing top-tier players.
"Player development in the United States continues to be a top priority for us. We are confident this initiative will be great for the country and club and produce many star players of tomorrow."
Jim Pallotta, AS Roma President
Building on its renowned youth academy at home in Italy, Roma brings a unique partnership approach to its partner clubs. Dedicated Roma staff provide ongoing coaching education as well as tailored physical and tactical performance programing. Partner clubs are invited to participate in training camps and showcase events in the US and Rome, and in competitions worldwide.
"As someone who spent their youth living in both the United States and Italy, there's a personal satisfaction that comes with seeing Roma investing significant resources to player development in America. There's a lot of talent here and it's great that the club continues to recognise that."
Mia Hamm, AS Roma Board Member
