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.
