Societa Sportiva Lazio is an Italian sports club based in the Eternal City of Rome. The club has 37 sports disciplines, more than any other sports association in Europe. The football section of the club is currently a member of the Italian Serie A for the 2008-2009 season. Lazio have won the Italian Serie A twice.

Soceita Podistica Lazio, or Lazio Track and Field Club, was founded on January 9, 1900 and was so named after the region in which the city of Rome is located. Lazio joined the league competition in 1912 and was the only Roman football club to successfully resist the Fascist regime’s endeavour to merge all clubs in what would become AS Roma.

Lazio played in the Italian Serie A in 1929 and won the Coppa Italia in 1958. In the 1950s and 1960s Lazio did not achieve much success but surprisingly won the scudetto in the 1973-1974 season.

However in 1980, Lazio were relegated from the Italian Serie A due to a betting scandal and couldn’t climb back to the Italian top flight for three seasons. But in 1986 again Lazio were hit with another betting scandal.

In 1992 Sergio Cragnotti became the clubs coach and reshaped the club’s fortunes. He signed the likes of Juan Sebastian Veron Christian Vieri and Hernan Crespo for big money and won the scudetto in the 1999-2000 season. Lazio also won the Coppa Italian in 1998 and 2004 and the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1999.

Since 2000 however Lazio have markedly declines, failing to even remotely challenge for the Serie A title. They were involved in the Calciopoli scandal in 2006 but finished third in the Serie A in the 2006-2007 season and played in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League in 2007-2008.

Lazio play their home matches at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. The stadium has a capacity of 72,698 and is shared with Rome’s other big club AS Roma.

Lazio bear the nickname Biancocelesti (white and sky-blue), AQuilotti (Young Eagles) and Le Aquile (the Eagles).

Lazio bear a fierce rivalry with their arch rivals AS Roma and contest the Derby della Capitale. Lazio also foster a volatile animosity with Napoli.

The club has a group of ultra supporters with far-right political viewpoints (their views do not represent the majority stance of the fans) and in contrast to Roma’s left-wing supporters they contribute to the fierce rivalry between the two clubs. The Rome Derby is among the most heated rivalries in international football. Lazio’s ultras are also rivals to Napoli, but friendly with fellow ultra groups of Inter and Hellas Verona.

Among the club’s titles are:

  • 2 Serie A championships; most recently in 1999/00 under Sven-Goran Eriksson
  • 4 Coppa Italia
  • 1 UEFA Cup Final
  • 1 UEFA Cup Winners Cup Title
