Champions Lounge Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Champions Lounge is a Pre-Match informal hospitality package, only available for larger events, such as Italy v England. The Lounge is situated in the Monte Mario Stand.

Location

The main stand in the Stadio Olimpico is the Tribuna Monte Mario, which is named after the Monte Mario hill in the NW of Rome. The stand is side-on to the action and has a capacity of 16,500 out of a stadium capacity of 70,634

Facility/Décor

The suite is a standard functional space, with access to a terrace with panoramic views of the pitch.

Private Tables

Please note that private tables are not available, only limited casual seating. This is a primarily a standing-buffet package.

Admission

The seats are located in an excellent section of the Monte Mario Stand, that being Tribuna D’Onore Laterale (The Lateral Honour Stand). These are prime seats situated close to the 22m line, in the equivalent of the Middle Tier. More impressively the D’Onore is split into small exclusive outdoor areas (which the Italians refer to as “boxes”, Palchi Laterale), which allow groups of 8 guests to have their own mini-bar during the match and a small TV screen! There is a surcharge applied for groups requiring box-seating of approx. €50 per person. Alternatively, you will have excellent seats in the D’Onore Laterale.

Catering

The hospitality facility opens 2 hrs before kick-off, which is not a great deal of time for reception and lunch, which is a pity considering the efforts made to present the hospitality. Lunch consists of a buffet with local and classic Italian cuisine and coffee is served during half-time.

 

Seats in the stadium

Drinks

Italian beers and local wines are served during lunch. Please note that there is no Prosecco or no spirits included in this package.
