Roma fans gather in Rome centre to celebrate club

Football fans celebrate 94th anniversary of AS Roma.

A large crowd of Roma supporters gathered in the centre of Rome last night to celebrate the founding of the Serie A football club 94 years ago, as documented in a video by LaRoma24.

Italian newspapers give varying estimates of the number of fans who paraded through the centro storico, ranging from "over a thousand" (La Stampa) to "5,000" (La Repubblica).

The group of giallorossi fans filed down Via del Corso, passing by Via degli Uffici del Vicario where the club's founding deed was signed on 22 July 1927, before arriving in Piazza del Popolo.
