While the stalemate between Roma and the city of Rome regarding the club’s new stadium continues, a new dispute has broken out between the sides.

Roma has taken the local municipal government to court due to a €475,000 fee the club has been imposed related to policing at the Stadio Olimpico.

The 49-page filing that was submitted by Roma on 20 October claims that the club was charged for stadium policing services by interim Police Chief Stefano Napoli despite no fans being present inside the stadium because the country was in lockdown.

In the filing, Roma also launches a scathing attack on the administration of Rome mayor Virginia Raggi, which they describe as “confused and disorganised”, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
