“FIFA Master” 17th edition Graduate, Ami Otaki, signs for Paris FC Féminines

The “FIFA Master” course Scientific Directors and module Co-ordinators in Leicester, Milan and Neuchâtel all send their best wishes to Ami Otaki who has signed for the leading French women’s football team, Paris FC Féminines, for the 2017/18 season.

Ami, who graduated from the “FIFA Master” 17th edition this summer, signed for the club immediately after completing her studies in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport over the past academic year. She is now training hard to be ready for her new challenge in French Women’s football.

Speaking during her unveiling as a new Paris FC Féminines player, Ami said, “I have missed football. The sensation you get on a football field is unique. I need that. The club's project convinced me to come back and I will do my best to help the team.”

The President of the women's section Marie-Christine Terroni added, "We are delighted to welcome Ami to our club. We know very well Ami's immense attacking ability, and all the staff will do their best to get her back to her best level, placing Ami amongst the best strikers in the championship.”

Ami has previously won the UEFA Women’s Champions League in the 2011/12 season with Lyon and is also a two times champion of the French women’s league and Cup. She was also a reserve squad member for the Japan national Women’s team at the London 2012 Olympics.

With such an impressive playing CV and now with the additional support of her “FIFA Master” 17th edition class, we are sure that Ami will be a huge success on her return to elite level women’s football. Good luck Ami and everybody connected with the "FIFA Master" will be supporting you in every game!

The “FIFA Master” - International MA in Management, Law and Humanities of Sport is organized by the CIES in partnership with De Montfort University (Leicester, UK), SDA Bocconi School of Management (Milan, Italy) and the University of Neuchâtel.
