Roma’s new owners, Dan and Ryan Friedkin, have accepted a request from a group of supporters to bring back one of the club’s former crests.
Both La Gazzetta dello Sport and Corriere dello Sport have reported that following a meeting between Roma CEO Guido Fienga and members of the Curva Sud, including lawyer Lorenzo Contucci, the Giallorossi have decided to bring back the old “ASR” crest, which was used from 1997 until 2013.
The club will, reportedly, use the old crest beginning next season on the Giallorossi’s second shirts.
The current crest, which was introduced by former President James Pallotta, has been used since 2013 and became a very divisive topic among many Roma supporters ever since its inception.
Pallotta unveiled the crest without consulting any of the supporters, many of whom did not like the change from the acronym “ASR” to the word “Roma” below the depiction of the Lupa Capitolina and Romulus and Remus.
