AS Roma president Jim Pallotta has issued the following statement, after Friday's meeting to decide the future of the Stadio della Roma project:
"It has been a long, long journey - it almost feels like how it must have been for our Roman ancestors on their many campaigns.
"But the next step on the journey is in front of us. First and foremost, I want to thank our fans: they are the best in the world.
"Profound thanks also to the mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi, the deputy mayor, Luca Bergamo, and the many other government officials involved in this process. Also thanks to Luca Parnasi and his team for their hard work.
"Most of all, I want to thank Mauro Baldissoni and the entire Roma executive team - both in Rome and overseas - along with all the players and the coach.
"This is an important evening for AS Roma. We look forward to building a stadium that the club, and the city, can showcase to the entire football world.
