Roma signs 6-year deal with ESPN complex in US


ROME (AP) -- Roma has signed a six-year deal with the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex that will allow the American-owned club to hold its winter-break training in Kissimmee, Fla.

The deal makes the three-time Serie A champions the official professional soccer team of the facility, near the Walt Disney World Resort. Roma will enter one of its youth academy teams in the Disney's Soccer Showcase tournament.

The deal was announced Monday.

A group of four Boston executives closed a deal in August to become the first foreign majority owners of a Serie A club.
