AEG Facilities has begun operational activities at the new Stadio della Roma complex in Rome, Italy. The project includes a 52,500-seat stadium (expandable to 60,000), a live entertainment amphitheater, a museum and several entertainment and F&B zones.
The long-term agreement between AS Roma Football Club and AEG Facilities, sees the multinational venue company provide pre-opening and management services prior to construction starting in 2017. The venue is anticipated to open in time for the 2019-2020 Italian Serie A season.
“It will be a true multi-use stadium and will host not only the world’s best soccer matches, but also concerts, festivals and other events.”
The €2billion project, which includes over €400m in privately funded public infrastructure works, is expected to create a significant amount of local employment, as well as be an economic boost for the Italian city.
“AEG Facilities Global Solutions is thrilled at the opportunity to work … on what will be an iconic venue,” said Bob Newman, President, AEG Facilities. “It will be a true multi-use stadium and will host not only the world’s best soccer matches, but also concerts, festivals and other events. We are thrilled to be part of this exciting project.”
The newly launched AEG Facilities Global Solutions will provide pre-opening services during final design and construction periods before AEG Facilities continues the relationship to manage day-to-day operations once the venue is open.
