Now we can see why Baldassoni has always been present during the American ownership, while other executives have come and gone!

Yeah, he has got a lot of praise the last few days from all over the place in making this deal happen.

Baldissoni:

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


Baldissoni gives update on stadium timeframes

I suppose it's wise to play safe and earmark 2021, but a year or two earlier sounds probable.

As expected, Raggi wasn't able to convince the region to accept the new resolution. Bar a miracle, the conference of services will have to re-start all over again. We are back to the same stage we thought we passed in 2014. Two years of complete waste thanks to Raggi's incompetence.

Pallotta should cut his losses and leave.

Seems they have to march 30th to send in needed documents. However, Raggi(mayor) and Zingaretti(region) is in open war now, where she accuse him for trying to stop needed income and jobs to Rome, that the stadium would bring. Lean back and enjoy the freak show

So much drama in this corrupted but beautiful country.

At this pace, Italy is heading towards becoming the new Egypt, no offense to anyone, but these countries ruled the world and are now struggling due to corruption and so, sad fact!!!

Such a project, would bring in much needed jobs in a country were unemployment is over 12% with no new investments done in recent years, the country needs to attract new investors to the country, what they do is simply pathetic.

Just let Agnelli buy all clubs!!!

There are public officials who put their ego and self interests ahead of the country's well being. For that, they should be made to move to a crickety farmhouse in Calabria and made to fight for their own food and security.

It works if you work it.

Pallotta is now seriously fed up with politicians in Rome and Lazio region that he said he wont be around if they cant build the stadium. And i really get him, the bs that has been going on for to long has to stop.

I watched the whole interview. I don't think he was serious. He said it in a dare/bet kind of tone. It sounded to me more like "I am so sure it will be built by then and if not I will sell Roma to make you happy"

So what's the hold up? Why is it taking so DAMN long to get approval...to start building...to keep up with the rest of football.

There was a time when we were rivaling the elite...but we still dont have our damn stadium. Now teams like Spurs and Dortmund are miles ahead of us.

Bah. Bureaucracy

Yup it's insane. Now we need region to confirm it and then we can build. Hopefully they will do it fast. But knowing this is Italy it will take for ever or they will say no.

Tomorrow, just before our UCL game, the final decision on whether the stadium applications has been approved or rejected is expected to be announced.

The article below, from Corriere dello Sport, is in accordance with what Pallotta said a year or two ago, namely that the stadium should host 200 events - of which AS Roma's home games will account for between 40 and 50 - per year. That number of events, plus the rest of the complex, could - I suspect - push our revenues through the 400m euro/year barrier, possibly towards 500m.

AS Roma Stadium and Roma Entertainment Complex: the goal is attract 9 million visitors.

Just a few hours before the green light, but Giallorossi are thinking about the future of Tor Di Valle, in south Rome. The philosophy behind the project is to create an area where visitors can live the passion for the football team before and after the event. The Roma Entertainment Complex is expected to host international brands in order to offer their services and top products, without limits. In this area, both citizens and tourists will enjoy various artistic and cultural events. The Roma Entertainment Complex will be the gateway to the new AS Roma Stadium and the Business Park that will house 10,000 people, all immersed in pedestrian boulevards and green spaces.

A rich program of about 200 events per year is planned, with the goal to attract up to 9 million people. There will be entertainment services, with many Romanist features, including the AS Roma Superstore, the AS Roma Museum and the Hall of Fame. In addition to this aspect, there will also be a commercial one, with shops, bars and restaurants, hotel, etc. Within the area there is a pedestrian path called Promenade, with the new station of Tor di Valle and characterized by small parking spaces and public services.
