In a room full of journalists, political and sports institutions, representatives of associations and companies, as well as managers and some athletes of the consortium companies, introduced by Simona Rolandi, the President of the Consortium Roberto Mignemi took the floor to present the idea to the the basis of this project, the President of the Lazio Regional Coni Riccardo Viola, the Delegate of the President for Sport of the Lazio Region Roberto Tavani and the Councilor for Major Events, Sport and Tourism of the Municipality of Rome Alessandro Onorato to confirm the appreciation and institutional support for the initiative.
Roma Sports Network thanks in particular the Councilor Alessandro Onorato who immediately wished to support the initiative, making the prestigious location (symbolic place of concord) available, drawing the attention of the economic community, inviting excellent partners, raising awareness all listening to the requests of the Capitoline high-level sport.
Although unable to be present due to previous commitments, the President of CONI Giovanni Malagò wanted to express his closeness with a significant video message for all those present, grateful for their support for the project.
The consortium, made up of 12 top Roman sports clubs, representing 10 sports disciplines, aims to promote, support and disseminate a new culture of sport and a new way of doing sport in the capital.
The slogan that characterizes it summarizes its great meaning: Together for the sport of Rome.
Sport is the cultural and economic heritage of the city, it contributes in a fundamental way to the improvement and well-being of the community.
Starting from this premise, Roma Sports Network introduces itself and asks for the involvement of institutions, sponsors, media and citizens in order to play sport in a sustainable way in the city of Rome.
The consortium companies have written a manifesto that contains the fundamental principles of this initiative, inviting everyone to create a system and create synergies to support Roman sport, from the top level to the bottom, with concrete proposals and declared objectives.
Uniting the top sports clubs of the city of Rome under a single brand, where managing, organizing and practicing sport is currently more complicated than in other cities, will allow the development of unique and continuous promotional activities, initiatives and large events, which will facilitate the diffusion of all sports, as well as allowing Roman sports clubs to compete under the same conditions as those of the rest of Italy and to all grassroots sport to have space and visibility for the various sports disciplines with the support of major clubs.
The Roma brand has a disruptive force in Italy and in the world, it can no longer be a limit to the development of high-level sports projects due to difficulties in finding facilities, lack of media and citizen attention or limited economic support.
Sport must become an educational and training flywheel for the dissemination of the correct approach to the quality of city life. Motility, nutrition, aggregation, sense of identity, inclusion, solidarity, are some of the values that sport helps to spread and improve, without forgetting the possibilities of economic development to which it can contribute when it is possible to involve the socio-economic fabric of the city.
A great return of image, institutional, social and economic for the whole city of Rome, for those who will participate and for those who will support the Roma Sports Network consortium in its development, a virtuous example of a sustainable and synergistic system for sport in large cities.
Roberto Mignemi (President of the Roma Sports Network Consortium) –
«We are proud to launch this initiative because we believe it can be a turning point for Sport in Rome. We are aware of the difficulties, but we believe that to bring Rome back to where it deserves, we need to work in synergy and create a system between sports clubs, institutions and companies. We want Clubs to be modern and innovative using, for example, all the potential of the digital world to increase visibility and contact with the public. We want the values and activities related to Sport to contribute to improving the well-being of the city community. We want to become a recognized and reliable interlocutor for institutions, to improve the management of facilities and to promote grassroots sport. We think that there is no better example than the high level and we feel it our duty to make our development models and our know-how available. Precisely for this reason we think that it is good for everyone to build together sports and social promotion projects, so much so that as a founding principle of the Consortium we have defined that a part of the revenues that will be used for this purpose. Together for the sport of Rome, we can win this challenge ».
Alessandro Onorato (Councilor for Major Events, Sport and Tourism of the Municipality of Rome) –
“The idea of creating a consortium of sports clubs from the Roma brand immediately conquered me so much that I immediately made an appeal to the Roman business world to support the initiative and with the mayor Gualtieri we wanted to host the presentation in one of the most prestigious places of our city. In a metropolis like Rome, sectarian attitudes must be overcome, it is time to aim for a system. The sports sector, like others, cannot stand if there are no plants and investors ready to bet on our city ».
Riccardo Viola (President of the Lazio Regional Coni) –
«A very interesting initiative that creates the conditions for defending the sport of the city and the Roma brand. Personally, also for my experience, I would like to talk about Polisportiva Roma. Such a hypothesis would give the possibility to all Roman sports to develop over time, with continuity. Let’s team up and look to the future positively! “.
Roberto Tavani (Delegate of the President for Sport of the Lazio Region) –
«A beautiful reality that of the new Roma Sports Network consortium, everything a great capital like Rome needed at this time. To start again in a big way and with the involvement of institutions, athletes and citizens. United under a single brand to spread a new culture and a new way of doing sport, also able to promote initiatives and major events. Because sport must represent the starting point of every rebirth and the arrival point of every path that has as its objective the well-being and quality of life of citizens “.
