Mark Pannes talks about the Stadio della Roma

AS Roma board member Mark Pannes spoke to Tele Radio Stereo regarding the Stadio della Roma, here are his words:

“Initially we joked about it (the stadium), but we responded and began to work seriously. I’ve had the good fortune to work in Paris, New York, London, and now in Rome. We have enough experience to say that needs of fans are the same everywhere: safety, having a wonderful experience when you go to the stadium, and getting the services they deserve. It’s a business so we have to take into account the financial aspects that are involved, but certainly the passion of the fans will not be affected by these issues.”
