About the Club
AS Roma (full name: Associazione Sportival Roma SpA) have spent their entire history bar one season (1951-52) in the top flight of Italian football. AS Roma were founded in 1927 by the merger of three other clubs from Rome: Roman FC, Alba-Audace Roma and Fortitudo-Pro Roma. The only major Roman club to refuse the merge was Lazio. Roma debuted in Europe in the 1969/70 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup. They have twice lost out in UEFA finals – the 1983/84 European Champion Clubs’ Cup and the 1990/91 UEFA Cup.
One word of warning – avoid the notorious Ponte Duca D’Aosta around the ground on matchday. Tourists and fans have been targeted here in the past.
