Are large operational groups with multiple stadia and arenas in their portfolios doing enough to address sustainability issues, or should the onus lie with individual venues to reduce their environmental footprint?

AS Roma could move to new stadium within three years

AS Roma managing director Mauro Baldissoni believes it is possible the club could move into the new Stadio della Roma within the next three years, according to a statement on the club’s website.

Baldissoni, speaking on Italian television, revealed more about the club’s updated plans for the Tor di Valle project – and confirmed that the club hopes to be playing matches inside the new stadium by at least the 2021-22 season.

The project could be completed sooner than that, depending on how the next phase of the process unfolds.

“We’ve gone to great lengths to reduce the overall volume of the project while remaining as faithful as possible to our original objectives, which include providing the city with improved infrastructure and rendering the whole area – not just the stadium – accessible for the citizens of Rome,” Baldissoni said.

“As for the construction timeframe, we could well be looking at less than three years. We’re confident that, provided we break ground as soon as possible, we’ll be able to inaugurate the stadium by the 2021-22 season at the latest, and hopefully in 2019 or 2020.”

The more positive outlook comes after productive talks with the Mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi, and her team over the past week.

“I must say that the regional government has thus far done a magnificent job in coordinating everything,” Baldissoni added. “We’re sure they will continue to do so and ensure the whole process runs smoothly right through to the end, even with the changes that will be made.”
