Official: Stadio della Roma rejected

The Stadio della Roma is in limbo after the Regione Lazio officially rejected the proposal to build a new arena.

This decision had been in the air for a few days, as the Mayor of Rome was turning against it in a series of meetings.

Today the formal announcement was made that the Regione Lazio had voted against the project as it was presented to them.

Among the issues the authorities had problems with were the safety of surrounding roads, water pipes, a lack of available parking and public transport links.

There are suggestions included on how to get the plans to a place where they can be passed, but it will take a long time to complete.

Roma have been trying to get this stadium project off the ground since the Americans bought the club and the most recent version was presented in April 2016.

President James Pallotta had promised it would be complete by 2021, but at this point the entire construction seems to be in doubt.
