Fairfax, VA. (PRWEB) November 18, 2013
ACF Torino USA, a top team in the Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL), will be competing in the Soccer Resort 7v7 Turkey Cup Tournament on Saturday, November 23rd at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, VA. ACF Torino (originally Maryland Capitols FC) was formed after winning the WPSL Eastern- South Division in the first season of existence. Based on interest shown by ACF Torino Italy of the Serie A femminile League, it was decided to form a complete partnership and affiliation with Torino and change the team name from Maryland Capitols FC to ACF Torino USA.
In addition to the re-branding, Torino is also working to replicate the Torino European professional Centre of Excellence infrastructure model, offering a complete "cradle to grave" development program and to be able to offer a professional level of soccer when players embark on their college and post college careers. The roster includes current players from some of the top colleges/clubs in the MD/DC/VA area, as well as from collegiate teams across the United States. ACF Torino players playing in the Turkey Bowl Cup are:
Elise Bender Ashley Munchel Jessica Jach
Penelope Fantis Dianna Barrera Emily Hoover
Rachel Lindenfeld Alina Difazio Michaela Seigo
Ellen Anderson Amanda Olsen
