Roma Once Again Display Goodwill Towards Their Fans

Roma will reward the 166 fans that suffered through the 1-6 drubbing against Bodo/Glimt by gifting them the tickets for the European Conference League final. They reached it by nipping Leicester City Thursday. The match against Feyenoord will take place in Tirana on May 25th.

According the La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Giallorossi will have 5k seats at their disposal. They will proceed with a lottery among their season-ticket holders for the remaining ones. The Kombetare Arena can host up to 22.5k people.

Roma will be looking to take home some silverware for the first time since 2008, when they lifted the Coppa Italia. On the international landscape, they won secondary trophies, such as the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (1961), the Transatlantic International Cup (1967 and 1977), and the Anglo-Italian Cup (1972). They made it to the final of the previous version of the Champions League in 1984 and the UEFA Cup once in 1991. They lost to Liverpool and Inter on those occasions.

After the thrashing in the group stage, Roma redeemed themselves against Bodo/Glimt in front of their fans. They demolished the Norweigian side four-nil after a narrow away loss in the first leg of the quarter-finals.

The Giallorossi also eliminated Vitesse during their path to the final. They have faced Feyenoord just twice in the past, in the Round of 32 of the 2014-2015 Europa League. They tied at home and prevailed on the road. Despite not having a particularly great season domestically, their supporters have routinely filled Stadio Olimpico, earning the praise of José Mourinho and the players.
