Associazione Sportiva Roma (ISE: IT0001008876) is a major professional football club both in Italy’s Serie A and in European football. The team has spent its entire history (but one season in 1951-52) in the top flight of Italian football: the club will play in the 2007-08 campaign its 56th straight season in Serie A.

Roma's home strip comprises of maroon red shirts with golden yellow borders, white shorts and black socks (or maroon red shorts and socks in highly important games), thus earning them their nickname i Giallorossi (the Yellow-Reds). The emblem of the team portrays the female wolf with the two infant brothers Romulus and Remus, illustrating the well-known myth of the creation of Rome, superimposed on a bipartite golden yellow over maroon red shield. The official colours also reflect the gold and maroon bipartite of the flag of the Eternal City, with the former symbolizing God in Christianity, and the latter imperial dignity.

Currently A.S. Roma are the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana holders, runners-up of the Serie A Championship and quarter-finalists of the UEFA Champions League.
