AS Roma names Volvo as its official car partner

AS Roma joined hands with Swedish car manufacturer Volvo, which will now become the club's official car partner in a three-year deal.

As part of the partnership, Volvo Car will make a fleet of 40 cars available to Roma, for use in transporting players and officials and assisting with the day-to-day logistics of the club’s many activities.

In addition, the company's brand will also feature around the Stadio Olimpico on matchdays.

Michele Crisci, president of Volvo Car Italia, said: "AS Roma are an internationally-recognised brand. We are all extremely proud to agree this partnership."

Roma chief executive Umberto Gandini said: "Today Volvo have joined our great family. Their name alongside ours only enhances Roma's standing, and underlines the strides we continue to make on and off the pitch.As a club, we always pay a lot of attention to our family – our fans, our employees, our friends and this too is a key motivation for Volvo, which puts the greatest focus on safety.

“We are also both alike in the field of innovation: Roma has constantly embraced advances in the digital world, while Volvo is developing state-of-the-art systems of its own.”
