During a press conference at the end of his visit to the FIGC the UEFA president Ceferin mentioned the Stadio della Roma project.
Even the president of UEFA expressed his point of view about the Stadio della Roma project. Moreover, he clarified that an eventual rejection of the project by the Municipality of Rome would represent not only a disaster for the AS Roma but for the whole Italian football federation and system.
Over the years, thousands of people, more or less informed about James Pallotta’s project, expressed their point of view about the monumental stadium that the Bostonian investor wants to build up in the capital of Italy. Those well-informed know and understood the importance that this facility and business complex would represent for the troubled Italian country but, unfortunately, games of powers are diverting the attention of the politicians in charge of evaluating the technical and economic aspects of this project.
In less than two weeks the Municipality of Rome will release their final judgment on the Stadio della Roma but the president of UEFA, Aleksander Ceferin, had the opportunity to remind everyone that the Italian stadiums must be improved in order to let the football of the Bel Paese be more competitive:
“I read a lot about the Stadio della Roma project but honestly most of what I know comes from the media. I don’t have a complete idea about it, I don’t know if that location is the right one to build a stadium or not, and I don’t even know if someone has the responsibility to make that or a different choice. However, what I do know is that if the Stadio della Roma will not be built this would be a disaster not only for the AS Roma but for the Italian football.”
