Rival of Riyadh EXPO 2030 Lazio to Use Rome's EXPO 2030 Campaign on Shirts
According to Italian media reports, Lazio could use Rome's EXPO 2030 campaign on their shirts, in direct opposition to Riyadh sponsoring the Roma jerseys. Why? Riyadh and Rome are two main candidates for the opportunity to host the EXPO 2030 event, and a decision will be made soon.
AS Roma signed a sponsorship deal with Riyadh Season worth €25m per season. Meanwhile, Lazio will likely get no or not much money by displaying the EXPO 2030 Rome logo on their kits.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport, Lazio are also evaluating other options to fill the void left by Binance. Lazio do not want to put the word "SPQR" on the kits as Roma had done after the cancellation of the agreement with Digitalbits.
The host country of World Expo 2030 will be elected by BIE Member States, gathered in the 173rd General Assembly taking place on 28 November 2023
