Calcio in America: “Making Italian football known in the US is fundamental,” says ACF Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso

The Bronx-raised Fiorentina president speaks on the sidelines of the 'Calcio is back' event in New York

Italy’s premier soccer league, the Lega Serie A, lands in the United States, launching a new historic phase for Italian football. The inaugural ‘Calcio is back’ event, in the prestigious setting of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, marks the beginning of this new path. 

“An idea born six years ago, they finally heard my cry,” said Rocco Commisso, the Bronx-raised president of ACF Fiorentina “Making Serie A known in the United States is fundamental because there are now 10 club presidents in Italian soccer who want to bring the Lega back back to the position it deserves.”
