Roma President James Pallotta called it a ‘historic milestone’ as the master site dossier for the new Stadio della Roma was submitted.
The club hosted a media event on Monday as they took another step towards the completion of their €1.1 billion project, which is hoped to be completed in time for the 2017-18 season.
“Today represents an historic milestone for the city of Rome and AS Roma,” Pallotta said at the Press conference.
“We’re proud of the job done by our team of international experts in the last three years and we thank the Rome Administration for the great collaboration showed since the first presentation of the project, here at Campidoglio in December 2013.
“Mayor Marino and his staff have been challenging us along the way to make the project better and I believe we’ve done everything we could to make Tor di Valle-Stadio della Roma a new safe, connected, exciting and sustainable epicentre that will allow a better way to live in the city and trigger economic development in the area, with AS Roma and the new stadium serving as the anchor for many generations to come.
“We all look forward to playing in AS Roma's new stadium. The fans deserve this new stadium and it will be a key driver for the club’s continued success.”
