AS Roma are pleased to welcome Moovit as the club's new Global Mobility Partner.
Giallorossi fans from across the world will now be able to arrive at matches at the Olimpico and stadia throughout Italy and Europe with greater convenience and ease thanks to the partnership agreed between Roma and the world’s leading transit app, Moovit.
Moovit is a free public transit app on Android and iOS devices and the web that provides real-time updates to transit routes, points of interest, get-off alerts and more in 180 cities in Italy and more than 1,800 cities around the world.
In naming Moovit as its global mobility partner, AS Roma becomes the first football club in Europe to provide its fans real-time public transport information for every match at its home stadium, as well as every stadium in which it plays in Italy and Europe.
For every game, Moovit will provide special instructions for AS Roma fans about the best public transit routes to ride, including how to arrive at the dedicated fan areas and specific fan entrances in each stadium.
In the capital, Moovit will also identify AS Roma stores as points of interest for fans. As Roma plays in the Champions League and will host teams from throughout the European Union, Moovit also will help other clubs’ fans use public transit when they visit Roma.
“Our partnership with Moovit, the world’s leading public transit app, is designed to help our fans get to the stadium quickly and easily by allowing them to identify the best way to travel to and from AS Roma matches in Italy and abroad using public transit,” said AS Roma chief marketing officer Luca Danovaro. “Standing alongside other partnerships launched by the club recently, this agreement is part of our commitment to improving the match-day experience for fans.”
Moovit has extensive experience partnering with major sports events as well as cities and municipalities to help people make better use of public transit. Moovit was the official transit app for the city of Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympics and collaborated with the UEFA EURO 2016 Fan Guide App to help football fans during that competition.
In Italy, Moovit has deep partnerships in Roma, Milano, Torino, Napoli, Bologna, Perugia, Palermo and more than 30 other cities.
“By partnering with Moovit, AS Roma is clearly embracing the future of urban mobility,” said Moovit Country Manager in Italy, Samuel Sed Piazza. “Moovit will give AS Roma fans more time to enjoy football, including what to see on their way to matches, and less time worrying about how to get there.
“From Milano to Palermo, Italians love Moovit because we help them better use public transit, whether it’s in their daily commute or getting to big events like AS Roma matches where tens of thousands of people arrive and depart at the same time.”
Moovit has become the biggest and fastest growing transit app in the world, with more than 100 million registered users in 79 countries in five years.
