Associazione Sportiva Roma, simply referred to as AS Roma, were founded in 1927 in Rome. The club’s supporters are mostly home based in the south of the city; Roma was founded to give the Italian capital a strong club to rival the dominant clubs of Northern Italy. AS Roma fans originally came from the working-class districts. It is believed that most Roma fans support the left, in contrary to Lazio Roma supporters, who are proud of their right-wing affiliation. AS Roma are also called I GiallorossiI (The Yellow and Reds), referring to their home kit-colours.
AS Roma play all their home matches in the Stadio Olimpico. They share the stadium with rival Lazio Roma. The stadium was opened in 1937 and renovated and expanded twice. Nowadays, it has a capacity of almost 73,000 and is definitely worth a visit!
