The Curva Sud, the hardcore section of Roma’s support, have released a statement confirming that they won’t attend this weekend’s Rome derby.
While Lazio’s Curva Nord have decided to go to the Olimpico, the opposite end of the ground will be empty as the Curva Sud have said they will be supporting the Giallorossi from the Academy Qualcio Roma.
“Even if we’re a long way away from the stands and from our home, the Curva Sud, the derby will never be just another game. That is why, once again, we will all experience it together.
“We will be watching it from the Centro Sportivo “Academy Qualcio Roma” on the viale dei Romanisti (on the junction with via Palmiro Togliatti) where, watching on a giant screen, we’ll be supporting the team as if we were at the Olimpico.
“While we wait to see the result on the pitch, one thing is certain: we have already won! Whoever gives up going to a derby to stick by their principles can never lose!
“Onward, Curva Sud, we will win this battle! ROMA”
