Pallotta: We fully expect to move forward with new stadium


AS Roma president Jim Pallotta is confident the Stadio della Roma project will move forward without issue, despite events on Wednesday morning.

Earlier today, nine individuals – none of them AS Roma employees – were arrested by police in connection to an investigation into aspects of the Tor di Valle project.

Prosecutors confirmed that AS Roma are not involved in the ongoing investigation in any way – and Pallotta is confident the issue will not delay the stadium project.

“We’re saddened and dismayed by today’s allegations and arrests,” Pallotta said. “As the prosecutor categorically stated earlier, AS Roma has nothing to do with this.

“Also, contrary to what was reported in some places, the arrests do not involve the stadium contractor for Stadio della Roma and are actually nothing to do with the construction of the stadium or the entertainment complex.

“Now we fully expect to move forward with the project and we are not expecting any substantial delays.”
