Società Sportiva Lazio, commonly referred to as Lazio, is an Italian professional sports club based in Rome, Italy. The club competes in Serie A, the top flight of Italian football.
SS Lazio Youth Development System
The Youth Sector of the SS Lazio, implements an integrated system called “MODEL LAZIO”. Each aspect is characterized by a unique transparency from all the technical components. There is therefore no method of a single AREA or TEAM, but an exclusive Lazio model. Initially the individual technique is taken care of, then with the passing of the years the tactical aspect is integrated, increasing the practical knowledge of each player more and more.
The Lazio Youth Sector imposes on its athletes three behavioral obligations, considered of fundamental importance, the first is the “family” as the most important value that supports our children, secondly the “school” that must be attended and completed in a manner optimal, the third, finally, the “football” played in a serious way, as a second chance after school.
The activities of the SS Lazio Youth Sector are aimed at developing the technical, tactical and physical-athletic aspects of young players with the aim of bringing them to wear the jersey of the first team of the Capital.
To achieve this goal, the first real goal is to grow ATHLETES and ATHLETES, preparing them to tread the biggest football “stages”, although aware that not everyone will make this sport a profession.
Considerable importance is therefore given to EDUCATIONAL ASPECTS: the capillary attention to academic achievement, respect for the rules, the sense of belonging and the spirit of sacrifice are an integral part of this growth path.

SS Lazio History
In 1958, the club experienced its first significant victory when they were victorious in the competition for the domestic cup. 1974 was the year when they took home their first Serie A championship. The decade of the 1990s was the most successful in Lazio’s history, with the club achieving unprecedented levels of success, including reaching the final of the UEFA Cup in 1998, winning the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and the UEFA Super Cup in 1999, and claiming the title of Serie A champion in 2000.
Lazio’s success in the league began to decrease in 2002 when the club was hit with a serious economic crisis that resulted in the resignation of the club president, Sergio Cragnotti, as well as the sale of several of the club’s key players. Despite having less money available, the club has been successful in winning the Coppa Italia four times since then: in 2004, 2009, 2013, and 2019. After Cragnotti stepped down as president of the club in 2004, the position remained vacant until the current president, Claudio Lotito, assumed control of the organization.
The traditional colors of Lazio’s kit are sky blue for the shirts, white for the shorts, and white for the socks; these colors are meant to evoke Rome’s ancient Hellenic heritage. There has also been some interchangeability with the use of socks in the sky blue color. Their home field is the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, which has a capacity of 70,634 people and is shared with A.S. Roma. Lazio has a long-standing rivalry with Roma, with whom they have competed in the Derby della Capitale (also known as the Rome derby) since 1929. This match is known in English as the “Derby of the capital city.”
In spite of the fact that it did not have any parent–subsidiary relation with the male and female professional team (that was incorporated as S.S. Lazio S.p.A.), the founding of Società Sportiva Lazio allowed for the club that participates in over 40 different sporting disciplines in total, which is more than any other sports association in the entire world.
Over 70,000 spectators may be accommodated at Rome, Italy’s Stadio Olimpico, which is the city’s most extensive sporting venue. It may be found at the Foro Italico sports complex, which is situated to the north of the city. The Italian National Olympic Committee is the owner of the building, and the sport of association football is the primary activity that takes place there. The final match of the Coppa Italia is played in the Stadio Olimpico, which also serves as the home turf for the football teams of Roma and Lazio. It hosted the tournament final after being reconstructed for the 1990 FIFA World Cup to be played there.
It is a category four stadium according to UEFA, and it has also played host to four different European Cup finals, the most recent of which being the UEFA Champions League Final in 2009. In addition to being used for football, the stadium is also the national athletics stadium for Italy and is utilized by the Italian national rugby union team. Concerts and other activities are occasionally held there.
The eagle has been used as the traditional club badge and symbol for Lazio since since the club’s founding member, Luigi Bigiarelli, made the decision.
It is an acknowledgment to the insignia of Zeus, generally referred to as Aquila. Lazio’s use of the symbol has led to two of their nicknames: le Aquile (“the Eagles”) and Aquilotti. In Greek mythology, Zeus was the god of the sky and thunder (“Eaglets”). The current version of the club badge consists of a golden eagle perched above a white shield with a blue border. The name of the club as well as a smaller tripartite shield bearing the club’s colors can be found inside the larger shield.
As of the year 2018, Claudio Lotito holds ownership of slightly more than two-thirds of the shares in Lazio. There are just three Italian clubs total that are listed on the Borsa Italiana; the other two are Juventus and Roma. One of those clubs is Lazio. In the past, Lazio was the only club that had a principal shareholder that owned all of their shares (Lotito). On the other hand, Roma and Juventus both have a large shareholder ownership after a series of capital rises that they have both undergone.
According to The Football Money League, which was released by Deloitte consultants, Lazio was the 20th highest earning football club in the world in the 2004–05 season with an estimated revenue of €83 million; the club’s rating in 2005 was 15th. In 2005, the ranking of the club was 20th. Despite this, Lazio did not place in the top 20 in the rating that was done in 2016 (the ranking used data from the 2014–15 season).
