Roma's New Stadium Moves Closer To Reality
If Roma's new stadium doesn't have a statue of Francesco Totti outside then the club are doing something seriously wrong. Either way the Serie A side are moving closer to a new home.
Much like their league rivals AC Milan and Inter Milan, Roma share their stadium with fierce rivals Lazio. The pair both call the Stadio Olimpico home. The stadium was rebuilt for the 1990 World Cup but that still makes it quite outdated and Roma are on the verge of leaving.
The Stadio della Roma, which should be called the 'House that Totti Built', received a boost on Tuesday when the plans for the project, which also include regeneration to the Tor di Valle area, were moved from the Roma Capitale to Lazio Regione for the next part of the review process.

The good news about the 52,000 seater stadium delighted Roma president Jim Pallotta who told the club website, "We are very satisfied with the project's progression. It is another step towards the realisation of one of the most important works in Italy.
"We are convinced that the Stadio della Roma-Tor di Valle project can contribute to the development and revitalisation of the capital, in addition to giving to the city a new stadium that Giallorossi fans can be proud of."
Stadium looks great guys but seriously, make sure there's a statue of Totti or we'll be having words!
