Roma sign with Mickey Mouse

Roma have signed a six-year contract with the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex to host its future winter break preparations.

From 2012-13, the Giallorossi have agreed to use the training facilities, located as part of the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, during the traditional mid-season break enjoyed over the Christmas period in Italy.

The club became the first foreign-owned team in Italy when American businessman Thomas DiBenedetto bought a majority shareholding last summer.

Roma join the growing number of top-level clubs to take mid-winter preparations abroad. Milan spent this term’s winter break training in Dubai.
