Series A Italia Football League Ticket Information
The first division of Italian football (also known as Serie A) is one of the most popular and professional football leagues in the world with an average attendance of 24,000 fans per match throughout the football season.
Italian football is ranked 5th among European leagues according to UEFA’s league coefficient behind the Spanish La Liga, English Premier League, German Bundesliga, and the Portuguese Primeira Liga, which is based on the performance of Italian clubs in the Champions League and the Europa League.
Inter Milan have competed in the most Serie A seasons, featuring 82 times to date.There are 20 teams in the league, with the top 3 sides qualifying for the following season’s Champions League.
The most successful side in Serie A history is Juventus, who have won the league title 30 times, followed by the two Milan clubs, AC and Inter, who have both won it 18 times.
Lazio and Roma are the two principal football teams of Rome. The derby matches between the two teams are hugely important, with an electric atmosphere which spreads through the whole city.
Each team’s fans are fiercely partisan and tell unpleasant tales about the opposition but despite each of them claiming to be the ‘authentic’ Roman team, the truth is that both sets of fans are equally representative of local culture.
Off the pitch and away from the rhetoric, Lazio and Roma supporters live and work side-by-side enjoying teasing and banter based around the teams’ relative Serie A positions.
The Stadio Olimpico (‘Olympic Stadium’) is located by the banks of the River Tiber, a short way to the north of central Rome. It seats approximately 70,000 spectators. The stands, which curve right around the pitch, are covered, and are irritatingly divided from the pitch by a wide running track.
The stadium was originally uncovered; the roof was added for the 1990 World Cup. New seating and security barriers were installed for the UEFA Champions’ League Final in 2009.
Approaching the stadium The stadium is situated in the Foro Italico, a big 1930s sporting complex glorifying Italy’s imperial past and its then ruler Mussolini’s own imperial ambitions.
It’s really worth exploring on a non-match day for some interesting photographs and a taste of Rome’s more recent history (like the modernist EUR suburb to the south of Rome).
Close to the Stadio Olimpico you’ll find Roman-style mosaics, an arena surrounded by statues of athletes and an obelisk emblazoned with the name Mussolini.
Visitors from other countries might be taken aback by the heavy police presence and the sometimes antagonistic behaviour of security forces.
Although there are now a few stewards in the stadium and more at the entrances, the two end stands in particular (the Curva Sud for Roma fans and the Curva Nord for Lazio fans) are still no-go areas for the police and are ruled by the powerful factions of extreme fans.
Trouble is not terribly common but it does happen.
Unwilling participants are rarely caught up in violence. Tourists visiting a match will be most comfortable – and get the best view – from the Tribuna Tevere, running along the side of the stadium closest to the river.
