Lazio – 117 years passion

Good morning , dear blue fans and fans of all teams. Yesterday was one of the most marvelous dates in the football story of Europe, Italy and Bulgaria. Yesterday the brave team of Lazio was celebrating 117 years of its creation. All the Bulgarian and Levski fans, do know what it means for us , from our close relations and that our game for our 100 anniversary was played with them at  the stadium of Vasil Levski.

I am very passionate and trembling , when I write those lines. It is because Levski and Lazio have many things in common- the fans, the colors, the eternal love and passion. These are just the obvious things. We all have red enemies, which are created in artificial way, however. The post is about SS Lazio ( societa sportiva – sport club ,society). Let’s try to follow and mark the most important steps of creating and developing such big club and name :

  1. 9 January 1900– at Prati district of Rome, general Luigi Bigiarelli created the team and gave the name Lazio , as the province of Rome is known from ancient times – Lazium.
  2. It is the only club in Europe , which under the name Lazio has 44 teams participating in different disciplines and kind of sports.
  3. Symbol of Imperium, power and might – the eagle. It was and it is the perfect choice. Best choice ever.
  4. Colors of the club   – white and blue , like the sky , the sea and freedom. All of you had watched the home games of Lazio at stadio Olympico and had seen the flight of our talisman eagle Olympia, while she was flying all the scarfs and banners with white and blue – just pure harmony and beauty.
  5. Titles – only 2 titles of Italy and 6 cups , 2 Super Cups of Italy, 1 UEFA Cup and 1 UEFA Super Cup winner but…. In Italy , you are competing with teams, who are many times reacher then you like : Milan, Inter, Napoli, Juventus and Roma…
  6. Irriducibili Lazio – created in 1987  , they also celebrate 30th anniversary this year. One of the strongest fraction of supporters in Italy and in the world, they have around 17 k members, which are dictating everything in Curva Nord.
  7. Legends of all times and present days – these are the players , which gave everything for the idea for the power and immense passion , called SS Lazio : Pavel Nedved, Nesta, Giuseppe Signori, Favalli, Pierluigi Casiraghi , Tommaso Rocchi , Stefano Mauri , Miroslav Klose , Silvio Piola, Luca Marchegiani , Paolo Negro and many more.
  8. A Roma , La Lazio , ce solo la Lazio “- this is a chant from a very famous song of the fans . It means that the city of Rome is only for the fans of Lazio. These chant was sung , even from our friendly fans of FC Inter in Madrid, when they won the Champions Leagues versus Bayern Munich.
  9. Choreography – one of the best of them are created by Lazio fans, fro those who are interested , you may go and search in google and youtube, what I am speaking about : eagles, knights and many epic banners covering all the Curva Nord– this is pure perfection.
  10. Lazio fans in Bulgaria – I must admit that there are many of them , here in our country . When we play in Italy , their fans come and support us, if they play in Bulgaria or in a country close to use, we and our fans go to support them. Fresh example was the derby with Roma, when over 50 Bulgarians went to support SS Lazio.

What to say , dear friends, it is unique emotion to write about one of your favorite teams,it is unique because the club is existing mainly because of the love of the fans, because of the braveness of the players and the devotion of their presidents. Also without good trainers, we could have been lost or gone to Seria B , several years ago. And on the last place : Lazio ti vogliamo bene !!!!!!
