With the Champions League soon to return to the Eternal City, Roma will be looking to put together a positive run of results and face AC Milan in Serie A this weekend.

Despite making it through to the knockout phase of the Champions League, Roma’s inconsistent form this season has brought some concerns among the fans in recent times.

However, as one of Italy’s better-supported sides and with an international following, one can also find Romanisti based in Holland through the Amsterdam Roma Club, which was founded in 2014.

“The club was set up almost five years ago, with the aim to be a checkpoint for every Giallorossi fan in the Dutch capital,” said one of the club’s founders Gian Paolo Simonetta.

“With the [member’s] card you can benefit from having priority on match tickets, especially for the away games. In fact, we follow the team in most of their European away matches.

“The club is open to everyone and surprisingly there are a lot of Dutch who support Roma and join us to watch the games. We also have close relationships with some Roma international and Italian fan clubs.

“We are all close friends and usually happy to organise gatherings where we can share a beer altogether.”

The supporter’s group is happy to welcome everyone to cheer on the Lupi and they are currently based at Cafè Batavia 1920.

“I just hope to watch the team playing with a great personality.

“Generally, the team has great potential and I admire our coach Eusebio Di Francesco too. However, the chemistry between the different positions is missing as the personality of some players too,” Simonetta added.

Amsterdam Roma Club also have a number of followers on social media and can be reached on Facebook ,Twitter or via email at amsterdamromaclub@gmail.com.
