We hope that coach Sarri can change his mind as early as tomorrow evening when Lazio will be involved in the season opener at home.

Compared to previous games, everyone has been able to verify the current good condition of the turf, which fully meets the requirements of the UEFA Pitch Quality Program, i.e. the official technical, sporting, and agronomic parameters on pitch conditions.

The Stadio Olimpico and the pitch were handed back by UEFA after the European Championships, during which the Olimpico was judged to be one of the best pitches, on 11 July. The entire pitch has been reseeded, with the help of the technical aids used.

Meeting the needs and requirements of the clubs is a priority for Sport e Salute, which always works to the best of its ability and quality to ensure the Olimpico and its facilities are in the best possible condition.

Sport e Salute reiterates, therefore, its willingness to dialogue and discuss directly with the clubs on all issues related to the development of the stadium.

The 62-year-old Sarri suggested in yesterday’s pre-match press conference that the condition of the Stadio Olimpico pitch was unfit for a club in Rome.

Complaints laid towards the Stadio Olimpico are not rare, with the running track heavily limiting the view of the pitch as well as the rough nature of the infrastructure.

Lazio president Claudio Lotito is working on a project to find a new home in the currently abandoned Stadio Flaminio, although the slow nature of Italian bureaucracy means that developments will take time.

Intercity rivals Roma, who also play in the Stadio Olimpico, are also working on finding a new stadium, highlighting the current issues plaguing the publicly owned stadium.
