Serie A is back after the international break with Lazio facing AC Milan at Stadio Olimpico on Sunday afternoon.
The Biancocelesti remain one of Italy’s best followed sides around Europe and it is not surprising that Skopje, Macedonia, too host an international group of supporters: Lazio Fans Macedonia, who have gathered together to cheer on the Aquile since 2010.
“The idea for Lazio Fans Macedonia was born on February 27, 2010, when Sebastiano Siviglia scored an amazing back-heel goal against Fiorentina,” said the club’s two administrations Filip Nacoski and Zoran Trajkovski to Forza Italian Football.
“From that moment on, we decided to create a supporters’ group in Skopje with the aim to watch all of Lazio’s matches together.
“We don’t have any membership but the club is open to everyone and this year we have celebrated our eighth anniversary,” they continued.
“Throughout these eight years, we are proud of how we came together and the good relationships we have developed.
“We usually organise trip altogether [too], such as in Krushevo or Veles, dinners and sometimes five-a-side football matches.
“Last time, two of us have done a trip to go watching live at Stadio Olimpico the Europa League match against Marseille. All in just 30 hours, without even sleeping.
“While we have also met with Lazio Balkan fan club in Sofia two years ago, while once we have watched a match against Inter with some Nerazzurri fan groups.”
Like every weekend, the fan club followed their team play at Mondano Sport Bar and they are enjoying team’s improvement.
“The team is demonstrating the right approach and motivation, we just would like to watch more players in the attack than in defence.
“We are currently fourth and maybe it will be the same in May. In Europe, we would like more than a quarter of final like last year.”
