Roma will reward the faith of the 166 supporters who witnessed their 6-1 loss to Bodo/Glimt last October by taking them to the Europa Conference League final against Feyenoord later this month in Tirana.
Jose Mourinho’s side beat Leicester City in the semi-finals to book their place and completely exorcise the demons of a dramatic defeat in Norway earlier this season.
From now on, the club will ensure that the faithful who have made the trip north are present for their shot at silverware.
What will Roma do for its supporters?
It was in October last year that a group of Roma fans made the long journey across Europe in hopes of seeing the Serie A side put on a close game at least in Norway, only to return humbled by their meeting in the Europa League.
But after getting their revenge in the UECL quarter-finals last month, the Italian side will now reward their commitment by taking them to Albania at their own expense.
With limited availability, the remainder of the club’s allocation will be open to a lottery for season ticket holders.
Are Roma on track to make Europe next season?
The UECL final carries extra weight for Mourinho as his side are still at risk of missing a European final entirely in Serie A.
Although they are too far out of the Champions League race, they sit in fifth place heading into this weekend’s round of fixtures, enough for a Europa League spot.
But with Lazio, Fiorentina and Atalanta on their last legs, they could miss the home front altogether – meaning a UECL win would be their only other route to Europe next season.
