Explore Soccer in Rome
Soccer—or football as it’s known in Italy—is one of Rome’s most beloved sports and pastimes. Rome has two Premier League clubs: AS Roma and SS Lazio. Fans of each team have a longstanding rivalry for differences based on political background, geographical location and the history of the competition. All of their matches are played at the Olympic Stadium in Rome. Matches are generally held on Sundays, so make your way to the stadium to see an interesting aspect of Roman culture. Just be wary—fans can get rowdy and even violent at times.
