Lazio to move to Stadio Flaminio?

Lazio to move to Stadio Flaminio?

Sunday 27th June 2021

Lazio have declared an interest in moving out of the Stadio Olimpico and into the Stadio Flamino.

The Stadio Flaminio is located around a mile and a half away from the Stadio Olimpico, closer to the city centre. It was originally opened in 1959 and has been mainly used for rugby, although both Lazio and Roma played the 1989/90 season there due to upgrade works to the Stadio Olimpico.

The stadium has lay empty since 2011 and would need some considerable modernisation. It is currently owned by the council and Lazio would be looking to leave the ground for a minimum of 30 years.

The idea comes as both Lazio and Roma look to move away from their shared Stadio Olimpico home. The clubs are looking to move due to ongoing concerns around the running track and size of the 70,000 capacity of the stadium, with both clubs averaging attendances of less than 40,000 before the pandemic. In March, Roma abandoned plans to move to a new stadium in the Tor di Valle area of the city.

It's still early days for both clubs, but it looks as though the Stadio Olimpico's days of hosting Serie A football could be numbered.
