Founded by a merger in 1927, Roma have participated in the top-tier of Italian football for all of their existence except for 1951–52.
Roma have won Serie A three times, in 1941–42, 1982–83 and 2000–01, as well as winning nine Coppa Italia titles and two Supercoppa Italiana titles. In european competitions Roma won the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1960–61, and were runners-up in the 1983–84 European Cup and the 1990–91 UEFA Cup.
Since 1953 Roma have played their home games at the Stadio Olimpico, a venue they share with city rivals Lazio. With a capacity of over 72,000, it is the second largest of its kind in Italy, with only the San Siro able to seat more. The club plan to move to a new stadium, though this is yet to start construction.
The club's home colours are Tyrian purple and gold, which gives Roma their nickname I Giallorossi (The Yellow and Reds). Their club badge features a she-wolf, an allusion to the founding myth of Rome....LESS
