Italy is a country that has riches in many areas of culture, often times, that history dates back centuries and even millennia, in some cases, cultural habits and items from Italy have spread across the entire world, be it food, the art or ancient history and religion, a lot of what we know and use in our daily lives has origins in Italy.

With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that one of the world’s best known and most liked football clubs hails from the country that gave us Opera, Pasta and Gucci, what may come as a surprise to you is that you can trade A.S Roma binary options quite easily as the club has been a joint stock company for the past 15 years or so.

Like a great many things (in sports and in general) the formation of A.S Roma was founded in jealousy of all things. Italo Foschi, the secretary of the ruling fascist party decreed in 1927 that all the top flight Roman clubs were to be merged into a single club which would than rival the domination of northern clubs such as A.S Milan and Inter Milan, a Fourth Roman club – S.S Lazio resisted the merger and was eventually allowed to continue separately (and immediately causing a rivalry between the two clubs, which refuses to die down to this day).

The club played its first game in 1929 and recorded its first league title in the 1942 war affected season, following that success the club was met with mixed fortunes in the decades to follow, going from the low of being relegated to the Serie B (for the first and only time) all the way to the team’s first Coppa Italia in 1963 and back to the brink of bankruptcy in 1965.

The club managed to hang on to its spot in the Serie A in decades to follow, but was not met with great success until the turn of the millennium, when A.S Roma won their 3rd league title (and last, as of this writing) in 2001, the decade itself was rather successful, and even though the club was always a bridesmaid and never a bride throughout it, they were, for the first time in decades able to maintain their success for a prolonged period of time.

In what might be described as an omen of their future success, the club became a joint stock company in 1999 with roughly 33% of stocks available for public purchase.

The club is now able to boast long term financial viability in addition to on the pitch success, with revenue in recent years exceeding €120 million, making the club one of the most profitable in all of Italy.

The Club is deep into the development of a new complex on the outskirts of Rome, one that, when completed, will include a brand new stadium, training complex and many surrounding businesses and is expected to be greatly profitable.

An investment in A.S Roma binary options is an investment in the current standing of the club, as well as its prospects for future success, and a smart investment can yield a great return, both on and off the pitch.
