Roma unveil new stadium plans

Roma president Rosella Sensi unveiled the design of the ground and its specifications at the club’s traning ground.

“My father Franco Sensi and Dino Viola had put the ownership of a new stadium at the centre of their plans. Today, it is at the point of arrival,” Rosella Sensi said.

“Our gamble is to build a ground for the family. We need a stadium that can be enjoyed before and after the game in total security.

“The Italian clubs play with a handicap because of the little earning power of our stadiums. Abroad there are different situations. Looking to the future, we could lose a place in the Champions League. We have a realistic project, which we have worked hard for. We looked for a place [to build the ground] and we have found it.

“There were many different hypotheses and we made investigations on the market. There were choices of a technical and corporate character. We have listened to experts from around the world as well as our own supporters and sympathisers – 99 per cent of them asked to be able to see the game better,” Sensi revealed.
