New recognition for the Spring and the first team of the Roma Women: after the titles won respectively in the championship and in Italian Cup, the two teams were received in the afternoon in Capitol, where they received a commemorative medal from the Municipality of Rome for the 150th anniversary of Rome Capital.
“Today I had the pleasure of meeting young soccer champions who made us dream last weekend, giving us immense satisfaction – says the mayor Virginia Raggi in a post -. I’m talking about the girls on the first team ofAS Roma, who won the Italian Cup, and the 2020/21 Women’s Spring which won the Scudetto for the second consecutive year.
I wanted to invite them all to the Capitol to tell them how proud Rome is of them. Our girls have shown great determination and determination!
This double result is in fact the confirmation that football, like all other sports, is not just a men’s exclusive. Women’s sport has the same importance and dignity as men’s.
I thank the AS Roma CEO, Guido Fienga, the coach of the first team, Elisabetta Bavagnoli, the coach of the spring team, Fabio Melillo, and all the managers.
Again many congratulations girls for the feat you have completed and a big good luck to always keep the same tenacity!“
Later, Roma also reported on the afternoon through a press release posted on their official website. Below is the note:
“On Thursday afternoon, the Roma women’s team and the Primavera were received in the Campidoglio by the Mayor Virginia Raggi.
The meeting was organized to celebrate the victory of the Italian Cup by the First Team and the second consecutive Scudetto by the Primavera.
In addition to the Mayor Virginia Raggi, the CEO of the Club Guido Fienga, the Head of Grovernment Affairs Stefano Scalera and the Head of Women’s Football Betty Bavagnoli were present.
“Today I had the pleasure of meeting young soccer champions who made us dream last weekend, giving us immense satisfaction,” said Virginia Raggi.
“I wanted to invite them all to the Capitol to tell them how proud Rome is. Our girls have shown great determination and determination. “
“We are really proud of the results achieved by all our girls, because they reminded us how good it is to win in this city,” said Guido Fienga.
“We are proud of how this path has been developed and for this we must thank Betty Bavagnoli who, although not from Rome, was able to immediately grasp the spirit of this project”.
These are the words of Betty Bavagnoli: “We thank the Mayor for this invitation, we are very excited. Three years ago, Roma allowed us to start a path to grow women who play football. It was not obvious to reach such an important result in such a short time, the Primavera had already managed to win the championship last season. I thank Mr. Melillo and all the staff of the two teams for this great job”.
