Stadio Olimpico: Italy's 6 Nations home for the 2017 matches

In 2017 Italy will again play it's 6 Nations home fixtures at the impressive Stadio Olimpico in the North West of the eternal city of Rome. The Stadium was the venue for the 1960 Summer Olympics, the 1990 FIFA Football World Cup Final and is today currently the home of top flight Italian football teams AS Roma and SS Lazio. The stadium has a capacity in excess of 70,000 and Italy's 6 Nations home matches were moved here in 2012 from the smaller and ageing Stadio Flamino, located one kilometre south, in order to accommodate the rapidly growing popularity of Rugby Union in Italy.

In 2017, Italy hosts 3 home fixtures and with this advantage the Azzuri will be looking for a good 2017 campaign. The first of the 3 home fixture takes place on 5th February when Italy take on Wales. Next Italy host Ireland less than one week later on 11th February looking to repeat their achievements of the 2013 home fixture when they managed to overcome the Ireland team. Italy's last home game in 2017 campaign is against neighbours France on the 11th March with a 1430 local time kick off.
