A Glimpse at the Sky Blues’ Galaxy

Lazio, or ‘I Biancocelesti’ as the fans love to call them, has been a fixture of Serie A – the top echelon of Italian football – since its inception in 1898. From the heart of Rome, they’ve commanded attention with their spirited play, iconic eagle emblem, and sky-blue uniforms. Throughout the years, the team has enjoyed notable success, earning multiple Serie A titles, a handful of Coppa Italia trophies, and even a UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup.

The turning point in their football history was the late 1990s to early 2000s period, referred to as the “Golden Era”. Guided by the Serbian strategist Sven-Göran Eriksson, Lazio clinched the elusive ‘Scudetto’ (Italian Championship) in the 1999-2000 season, a campaign still treasured in the memories of supporters.

Dancing With the Stars

Over the years, Lazio’s ranks have been graced by stellar football talents, who have helped etch the club’s name in the annals of the sport. The Argentine magician Juan Sebastian Veron, known for his precision passing, orchestrated Lazio’s midfield during their Scudetto win. Before flaunting his skills in the Premier League, Alessandro Nesta, a Rome-born defender, solidified Lazio’s backline and was later voted as one of the Serie A’s greatest-ever players.

More recently, Ciro Immobile, the potent striker, has left his mark in the team’s history. Before taking the Serie A by storm, Immobile had played for clubs like Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga and Sevilla in La Liga.

Tackling Rivalries: A Tale of More Than One City

Lazio’s most intense rivalry is undoubtedly with their city-mates, A.S. Roma, with whom they share the Stadio Olimpico. Their matches, known as the “Derby della Capitale,” are among the most fiercely contested in the world. This heated clash stems from a historical, social, and regional divide, making the encounters between these two more than just a game.

Beyond Italy, Lazio has had some memorable clashes with English clubs in the UEFA Champions League, notably against Chelsea and Manchester United. These ties have provided Lazio with an opportunity to test their mettle against some of the best teams in world football.

A Day at Stadio Olimpico: Where to Hang Your Scarf

Located at the heart of Rome, the Stadio Olimpico is a venue that drips with history. With a capacity of over 70,000, it’s a fortress for Lazio. For a first-time visitor, deciding where to sit can be a challenge, but we’ve got you covered.

If you’re on a budget, the Curva Nord is your destination. As the traditional home of Lazio’s most passionate supporters, tickets here cost around €35-45. Be prepared for some loud singing, chanting, and general merriment.

For those seeking a more luxurious experience, the Tribuna Tevere offers a fantastic view of the game and costs between €110-210 per seat. Here you can enjoy the comfort of padded seating, a bit more personal space, and easy access to amenities.

And there you have it – your personal guide to one of Serie A’s most iconic teams, Lazio. Whether you’re tuning in for the ‘Derby della Capitale’ or looking to experience the fervor of the Curva Nord firsthand, rest assured, Lazio will not disappoint.

The Games Go On

  • Foundation and Early Years: Despite being founded in 1900, Lazio didn’t join the Italian Football Championship until 1912, largely due to the club’s strong commitment to amateurism. It wasn’t until 1927 that they officially turned professional.
  • The symbolism of the Club’s Emblem: The club’s iconic emblem, the eagle, is a nod to the Roman Empire’s standard, symbolizing the club’s strength and dominance. The eagle on the crest is known as ‘Olimpia’, and has a live counterpart that circles the stadium before each home game – an impressive spectacle!
  • Unique Identity: Lazio is the only major club in Italy that refused to join the merged clubs of their city, keeping their unique identity. In 1927, when the Fascist regime decided to merge all the Rome-based clubs to form A.S. Roma, Lazio resisted, standing alone and proud.
  • Diverse Sporting Club: Besides football, Società Sportiva Lazio participates in over 40 sports disciplines, making it one of the most comprehensive sports clubs in the world. These include athletics, swimming, fencing, and rugby, among others.
  • Scoring Prowess: The current Lazio forward, Ciro Immobile, won the European Golden Shoe for the 2019-2020 season. He scored 36 goals in the Serie A, equaling Gonzalo Higuain’s record for the most goals in a single season in the league’s history.
  • Impact on Italian National Team: Lazio has significantly contributed to the Italian national team, “Gli Azzurri”. They’ve provided numerous players to the national squad over the years, including key figures in Italy’s 2006 World Cup triumph, like midfielder Massimo Oddo and defender Alessandro Nesta.
