Are You Soccer Mad?Soccer Crazy? Then try these Rome Soccer Tours

If you are fanatical about soccer, as you read through this article you’re going to learn that it’s easier than you think to travel to Rome, and see a classic soccer match, with the fans of Roma or Lazio at your side. Wouldn’t it be amazing to tell your friends that you were there, in the Stadio Olimpico, when the winning goal was scored!

The Stadio Olimpico is home to both Roma and Lazio and was built for the 1960 Olympic games. An impressive 82,000 plus venue it has housed European Cup Finals and the 1990 World Cup Final. It is also the first choice home of the Italian national team, and a great venue for these Rome soccer tours.

You can even save time and money and book your airport transfer services before you go! You can use a shuttle service that will take you from Rome’s Leonardo Da Vinci International Airport to your Rome Hotel, without the hassle of picking up a rental car, negotiating unfamiliar traffic and maps.

AS Roma were born in 1927 from the fusion of three different clubs – Alba, Fortitudo and Roman. A fine record in the 1930s eventually led to the first Giallorossi Scudetto in 1942.

Roma’s most glorious years were the 1980s as aside from the two Italian Cups, the club’s second Scudetto was lifted by Coach Nils Liedholm in 1983. The following year only a penalty shoot-out against Liverpool at the Stadio Olimpico kept them from winning the European Cup.

Rivals Lazio were founded in 1900 as Societa Spotiva Lazio, a multi-purpose sports club. The Biancocelesti began football full-time in 1906. Winning one wartime Roman title in 1944, the club lifted their first national trophy – a Coppa Italia – in 1958 but were relegated three seasons later.

Sergio Cragnotti took over the club in 1992 and with his financial backing Lazio have become a force both in Italy and Europe. Since 1997 the Biancocelesti have won their second Scudetto, a Cup-Winners’ Cup, an Italian and European Super Cup and two Italian Cups. However, only massive sales and a restructuring of contracts allowed the club to avoid bankruptcy.

Why book ahead?.. Well, here are my thoughts:

* Reduce stress! Don’t waste time haggling with the hotel concierge for matchday tickets.

* Save vacation time! Plan & book now, not when you’re there.

Believe me (and I’ve been in Rome during a major soccer tournament!) there’s nothing like the atmosphere of a match day, and the city buzzes with excitment. So, try one of these great value Rome soccer tours. Take the easy way – and book this efficient service online now and save time in Rome. You could have your match tickets secured in the next fifteen minutes!
