Roma President James Pallotta “identified a possible framework” to resolve the ultras strike in today’s meeting with the Prefect.
The fans have been absent from the Stadio Olimpico ever since the Prefect of Rome, Franco Gabrielli, ordered barriers be placed to split up the iconic Curva Sud section this season.
Lazio supporters have done the same for the Curva Nord being split into different areas.
“AS Roma reports that James Pallotta met the Prefect of Rome, Franco Gabrielli today,” read a statement.
“The President wishes to announce that it was a cordial and positive meeting. The conversation was useful in identifying a possible framework in order to improve the fans' experience of sporting events involving AS Roma at the Stadio Olimpico, with particular reference to the sectors in the Curva Sud.
“A constructive plan for the steps ahead will be sent to the central police station in Rome in the next few days and will be brought to the Prefect's attention shortly afterwards.”
The issue is still a long way off being resolved, but it is a step in the right direction.
