We are delighted to announce that Julia Zigiotti has signed a new contract with the club.
The 25-year-old joined Brighton in January 2022 from BC Hacken, where she spent three seasons prior to coming to England.
Zigiotti captained us in the second half of last season, making a total of 25 appearances in all competitions.
Women's first-team head coach Melissa Phillips said, “We’re excited that Julia has extended her contract with us at Brighton.
“She is such a dynamic player who I am certain we will get the best out of in the year ahead as I don’t feel we’ve seen her full potential yet.
"She also ended the year well after being voted 'Players' Player of the Season', she'll be keen to carry that positive momentum this preseason."
At international level Zigiotti represented Sweden at under-17 and under-19 level, before making her senior international debut in 2016.
Having represented her country at the 2019 World Cup in France, she also trained with the Swedish international team before their departure to Australia for the World Cup this summer.
