Glide Publishing Platform is extremely proud to announce that Italian football icon AS Roma chose GPP to power its new website and apps, launched last week as part of its plan to provide millions of fans worldwide with unrivalled access to news and exclusive member-only features about the club and its players.
AS Roma is one of the most storied and iconic sporting brands in the world, growing a passionate fanbase since founding in 1927 well beyond the boundaries of the Eternal City, and carrying the traditional yellow and red Giallorossi colours of its host city to global recognition on and off the field of sporting success.
The club’s new site and apps will be the first port of call for fans and followers worldwide to learn news of their beloved team and its fortunes in Italy’s Serie A & Serie A Femminile leagues, Italian and European cup competitions, and the AS Roma Under-19 and youth teams.
The site and apps will combine the team’s news across its many channels and social platforms, giving fans direct insight to their team and its drive towards more Italian and European titles and cup success, and continue to also encompass game and season ticketing, club shop, MYASR membership, and also business operations.
Denis Haman, CEO of GPP, said: “The Stadio Olimpico is one of the most famous sporting venues in the world and AS Roma is one of the legendary “seven sisters” of Italian football. We are extremely proud that a huge number of its 70,000 fans each matchday and many tens of millions of supporters worldwide will be seeing news and information about their team brought to them with the help of GPP. When you get a sense of that scale, you understand how major sporting organisations are publishing to an audience as big as many news organisations and need the same tools - they are publishers too.
“As a keen football fan I know how much we all turn to our clubs’ sites and apps for the latest official news and updates on our teams. We have done a huge amount in the very short space of time but we know this is just the beginning of what AS Roma has planned. Our team has been swept up by the passion of the team working at AS Roma so it's safe to say that the Giallorossi have a few more fans!"
