  05/03/2014: Curva Nord release statement
email print  
As we approach the match against Atalanta things are hotting up in Rome. The planned protest looks to be successful in keeping the stadium empty as the latest data show that there are still less than 1,000 tickets sold.

This style of protest has received criticism in the past, and as Lazio are hitting some decent form and draw closer to the Europa League, there is still some debate between filling the stadium in prostest and leaving it empty.

On Radio 6 this morning the Curva Nord has spoken and given it's reasons.

"We want to show that it is possible to stay away from what you love and to make it clear that we can no longer bear the current administration. This absence is an act of love and sacrifice. We are not organising these events for our own interests, it is pure love, the spirit is to free Lazio. All we can see with the current administration is the inability to dream. For us Lotito is not the President of Lazio, he is the one who ruins it. This is what bothers us."

"We are all doing this with the utmost civility and we will be there outside the stadium - the Cura Nord is our home. 'Libera Lazio' is the message that we send. Who can help Lazio? Perhaps a partnership to bring back the great Lazio. It may be that what we end up with will be worse than Lotito, but the atmosphere he has created round the club is unprecedented. The fans are dreamers, we are deprived of the opportunity to dream. We were moved when we saw all those 'Libera Lazio' cards raised against Sassuolo. We repeat, those cards were taken voluntarily by the fans. Someone took time to create them at home, showing we are all united."
