The women's sector is born at Fossano Calcio and will be the first Accademy Juventus in pink. Announced the last few months, it was officially launched yesterday, Wednesday 14 March in the red hall of the Municipality of Fossano.

"That of Fossano Calcio is a choice dictated by the intention to grow soccer in pink even at Fossano. We started working from last November to start a soccer school course in close contact with Juventus as already happens for the men's academy. We do not want to burn the stages, but we do not hide the desire to make Fossano a center for women's football "explained the manager of Fossano Calcio Roberto Calamari.
Juventus Women, heir of Cuneo Calcio, began his professional activity last July. As per regulation, the team has been included in the Serie A championship that is permanently driving.
"We have long had a close relationship with Fossano Calcio, a very serious company," said Stefano Braghin. It was a natural step to start the women's sector here as well, considered an important development area for both FIFA and UEFA. At Juventus we have 130 girls who play in different categories. It is not easy for a child to choose women's football and their passion is already a guarantee because they are used to going against the wind ".
"We are experiencing an evolution of women's football that has a tradition - said Rita Guarino -. Now you can get to know him and give new opportunities to little girls to play football. In fact, children often find barred streets in addition to facing prejudices. This phase is very important because it can allow many to change their mind ".
The history of women's football was mentioned by Mayor Sordella: "It was the 1933 when the female football group was born in Milan. The girls played wearing skirts. The experience lasted only nine months because the CONI then diverted players to other disciplines preventing the games from taking place. Years have passed and today women's football is a reality for thousands of girls, but I never take it for granted. There is still a lot to do for real social change. Thanks to Juventus for making a territorial choice and to Fossano Calcio, Balocco and CRF for believing in this project "
Yesterday evening the Balocco 2018 Trophy was presented, which this year will see the debutants 2005 of Fossano Calcio, Juventus, Torino, Napoli, Sampdoria, Lazio, Milan, Inter, Cuneo, Villaricca di Napoli and Virtus Entella. will play on the new synthetic field Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 May.

Sport Councilor Michele Mignacca has expressed satisfaction for "a difficult path whose fruits are now harvested. The company, with Balocco and CRF, has always acted with farsightedness and passion and it is the passion that allows us to collect results ".
