AS Roma have confirmed their intention to leave their home at the Stadio Olimpico and open a new stadium, currently under the working title of the Stadio della Roma. The stadium will be state-of-the-art, with a 52,000-seat capacity and with room for expansion to 60,000.
- 52,500 seats, expands to 60,000 for large, international events
- Design inspired by the Colosseum, with ultra-modern steel and glass, wrapped in a floating stone screen
- Glass and teflon-coated fabric canopy protects the seating bowl from the elements
- Premium seating options include Suites, Loge Boxes, Club sections – all with luxe amenities
- Anchors a 365-day-a-year entertainment destination, Roma Village, with shops, restaurants, bars, Nike SuperStore, AS Roma Hall of Fame
- State-of-the-art training and wellness facility dedicated to AS Roma’s first team training.
The stadium would have several obvious advantages over the larger Stadio Olimpico, which Roma have called home, along with city rivals Lazio, since the 1953-54 season.
The development of this iconic stadium is a central part of Roma’ s new ownership group’s vision and strategy for the future of the club and the re-emergence of the club as a force on the global football stage.
“We have worked exceptionally hard over the past two years and particularly in recent months in collaboration with Mayor Marino and his administration in developing this stadium project for AS Roma, the City of Rome and our great fans” said Mr Pallotta, United States based Chairman of A.S. Roma.
“The city and fans deserve this a world class stadium. We are confident the Stadio della Roma will be among the best in the world and a key driver for the club’s continued success ” he added.
