A.S. Roma – Matches and Tickets 2012/13

A.S. Roma is commonly known as Roma and is one of the best teams in Italy. Especially the games against rival Lazio are famous throughout Europe.


Last season, A.S. Roma disappointed and finished 7th place in Serie A, which meant they didn’t qualify for the Champions League or the Europa League. They won 16 games, drew 8 and lost 14, keeping a positive goal difference of +2. Against their big rivals, Juventus, they managed a 1-1 draw and a 3-0 and a 4-0 loss away from home. During the summer, Roma’s transfers in and out were fairly balanced as they spent €11.6m and received €11.3m. Most notably, they spent €5m on Denis from Udinese and €2.5m on Brivio from Lecce. In terms of outgoings they received a total of €10.5m from rivals Juventus for duo Gabbiadini and Padoin. For this season, A.S. Roma will definitely looking to improve this year and I think they can finish in the top 4, which will grant them Europa League football.

Currently, the club is playing its home games at the Stadio Olimpico, which is the second largest stadium in Italy with a capacity of 72,000. However, the new stadium is in the planning and should be completed by 2016.


AS Roma were founded in the summer of 1927 following the merging of three Rome-based sports clubs, Fortitudo-Proroma, Roma Football Club and Alba-Audace. It didn’t take long for AS Roma to win their first piece of silverware as in the 1927-28 season they won the Coni Cup where they defeated Modena in the final. In this early period of 1929-1940, Roma used the Testaccio Stadium as their training pitches and home ground, which supporters believed was their ‘home’. Roma then went 10 years with unimpressive results but eventually won their first Scudetto, the first time a Centre South team would win the Scudetto. During the war period, Roma suffered more than any other club, they were left penniless and therefore without any players. Several seasons ended badly and that awful period reached its peak with relegation in the 1950-51 season – the only relegation in Roma history.

From this point onwards, it only got better for Roma as they regained their Serie A status, 1960-61 the club gained their first international success reaching the Fairs Cup final and they won two Italian Cups in 1964 and 1969. The club went on to win its second Scudetto in Genova in 1983 which led the city of Roma to be ecstatic and inspired Antonello Venditti to write the song “Grazie Roma”, which would become the beloved Roma anthem. The following season was disappointing as they lost the league title to rivals Juventus by 2 points and also lost the Champions League final to Liverpool, where the venue was Roma’s home ground Stadio Olimpico. By 1991 Roma had won its 6th Coppa Italia and reached the UEFA Cup final against Inter Milan, which they lost and again, unfortunately, was at the Stadio Olimpico. In the new century, Roma finally entered the elite of the best Italian football teams with its first participation in the Champions League. All in all, A.S. Roma’s honours include: 3 Scudetto’s, 9 Italian Cups, 2 Italian Supercups and 1 League Supercup.

No shows booked at the moment.
