The mayor of Rome confirms that the new Roma stadium will be built in compliance with the rules and procedures.
This is not ‘The Game of Thrones‘ but the saga of the Stadio della Roma project goes on and on like a compelling TV series. Meanwhile, Jim Pallotta is waiting for the green light to begin construction of the facility in the eternal city.
The mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi, spoke about this endless procedure with the Italian outlet Avvenire as reported on ForzaRoma.info. “The stadium will be built and it will be an opportunity for Rome. There are €800 million of private investments and there is a pact that will be respected. Works for the community will be realized first, the stadium later,” said Raggi. “The path is marked, times decided, and the administrative process goes on. But I want everything to be done in a perfect way.”
Roma president Jim Pallotta is ready to break ground albeit a few procedural things are still on hold. Last February, the owner of the giallorossi had spoken about the Stadio della Roma with the American Sirius XM FC clearly emphasizing the importance of this facility for the club of Trigoria and for the city.
“In order to compete consistently as one of the top five/six teams in the world, the stadium is 100% key. It’s a matter of economics. It’s just a fact of life.”
