About the Team:
ACF Torino USA was formed as a direct result of the success of the Maryland Capitols FC, after winning the WPSL Eastern- South Division in 2012. After the first year of the program, it was decided to form a brand identity affiliation with a leading professional women’s team in Europe, ACF Torino who play in the Serie A femminile League. The team owner, Mario Repole, has connections to the club ACF Torino so to complete the partnership and affiliation, the team name was changed from Maryland Capitols FC to ACF Torino USA in later 2012.
Now in its third year of existence, ACF Torino USA strives to provide the highest level of soccer training and development. With players from around the country and the globe, Torino offers its players a true team community an opportunity to train at a competitive level with other women who are passionate about the game.
Since the WPSL season is short, ACF Torino USA provides its players with a training and fitness guide, and a well-organized pre-season schedule of opportunities and events. For those joining Torino during the late spring and early summer, we encourage players to arrive at a strong technical and fitness level and ACF Torino USA trainers and staff are happy to help anyone in the Torino family work to achieve their goals.
A major ambition of ACF Torino USA is to create a true soccer family and community. Torino seeks not only players who can commit to the full team experience for the short summer season but players who respect each other, will work hard for themselves and the greater good of the team, and those who have a true love for the game.
