Rome’s Mayor Confirms New Stadium Presentation

The mayor of Rome, Ignazio Marino, has spoken today and has confirmed that 26 March will be the day that the new stadium of AS Roma is officially presented.

“The presentation will be on the 26th. I’ll tell you more on the day of the presentation, but to President James Pallotta: I would like the construction of the stadium to take a short amount of time and in particular I would like for Roma to use the stadium for the 2016-2017 season. The administration of Capitoline worked with great rigor to find the right space. There are advantages for the fans, but also there are benefits for the city of Rome.”
