    AS Roma and Mater Dei General Hospital team up to offer a free service at the Stadio Olimpico to prevent heart disease

    AS Roma is far from just a team on the pitch, given the club’s unwavering commitment to supporting the community.

    Thanks to a partnership with Mater Dei General Hospital and Civil Protection Arvalia, on 22 April at the Stadio Olimpico, before Roma’s home showdown against Bologna, fans can get a range of heart screenings for free as long as they book in advance.

    This initiative is part of the UEFA Sustainability Strategy 2030 Health & Well-Being policy that the club is committed to.

    Fans who sign up by clicking on this link can have a cardiac check-up, including an electrocardiogram and blood pressure readings, conducted by specialists from Mater Dei General Hospital.

    This service will be available at the Toyota Fan Zone from 15:30 to 18:00 CEST and is reserved for fans aged 45 and over.

    Even if you cannot make a booking, you can still drop by and get information on how to book visits and tests at discounted rates.

    Cardiovascular diseases remain the leading cause of death in Italy. According to Istat data from 2021, these diseases accounted for 30.8% of all deaths (27.7% in men and 33.7% in women). Effective prevention efforts can go a long way to reducing this mortality rate.

    "We thank Mater Dei General Hospital and its specialists for their continued support of our loyal fans. Their expertise and generosity has a meaningful impact accelerating these critically important initiatives”, is the comment of Michael Wandell, Chief Commercial and Brand Officer of AS Roma.

    Alberto De Angelis, the Mater Dei General Hospital Commercial Director, said, “We're thrilled to once again partner with AS Roma for an initiative to prevent heart disease among fans. When it comes to health, we need to ‘take to the pitch’ together to achieve great things.”
