Rome Derby With Groundhopping Tours – A Danish Travel Agency From 2018

We specialize in Football Trips

Hi, my name is Nicolai. I am the founder and owner of Groundhopping Tours. For more than 20 years I have been addicted to traveling and watching football. It has taken me to over 400 different stadiums in more than 60 different countries around the world. I love the culture called groundhopping, which involves visiting as many different stadiums as possible, because I like to visit places that can give me new, exciting and different experiences.

For me, football has always been about much more than just the 90 minutes on the pitch. Because it is not just the players who create the club, the culture or the experience – it is also everything around; the history, the fans, the stands – even the flood lights are part of the club.

Living the groundhopping lifestyle sparked the dream of starting my own football travel company. A travel company where I could share my knowledge and experiences about which stadiums you can have the biggest and most spectacular, historical and authentic football experiences at, but where you can also share the passion for football, culture and travel experiences in a larger community.

The dream came true in 2018, and since then we have taken thousands of football fans to great football experiences all over the world – including Rome.

I hope to see you soon in Rome!

🇮🇹 The Italian Giudice Sportivo has fined Gianluca Mancini 5000€ for waving an anti-Lazio flag in the celebrations after winning the Rome Derby. Supporters of AS Roma gathered money to pay his fine, but Mancini insured that he would pay the entire fine himself and asked the supporters to donate the money to charity. #derbydellacapitale #gianlucamancini #asroma #asr #asroma1927 #footballculture

🇮🇹 For the Rome Derby last week, the Curva Nord displayed a choreography with “W la Lazio” which translates into “Long live Lazio”. Both sets of supporters in Rome have a long history and tradition of impressive choreographies and the two rounded stands (curva in Italian) behind the goals seems perfect for these massive displays. #derbydellacapitale #curvanord12 #sslazio #sslazio1900 #ultraslazio #curvanord #footballculture #groundhopping #

🇮🇹 Having your picture painted on the walls of Rome is a great honour. Only for the few and the true heroes. This Daniele De Rossi streetart you find in the Monti neighbourhood in central Rome, in Via dei Capocci 4. 

Daniele De Rossi played 18 seasons for AS Roma and was born in the Rome seaside neighbourhood of Ostia, which makes him a true Roman. His last season for his beloved AS Roma as a player was in 2019.

In January 2024 he came back to as coach for the giallorossi. So far with great success.

🇮🇹 In 2025 SS Lazio will celebrate its 125 years anniversary. Lately the club announced that a new logo will be unveiled for the occasion. 

In 2000 for the 100 years anniversary, Lazio played one year with a special anniversary logo. 

The new logo is still to be unveiled.

The next football trip will also be with Groundhopping Tours

The Netherlands, Scotland and Germany are so far the countries I have visited with Groundhopping Tours.

All trips have been absolutely fantastic, and there have been both top matches on the program and matches right down in the lower ranks.

I can only recommend Groundhopping Tours - so they will also plan my next football trip.

A very good experience

A very good experience with Groundhopping Tours, from pre-booking inquiry over booking and info before departure to arrival at the hotel and the entire setup in Dortmund (where we saw Dortmund vs Gladbach) with stadium tour on Friday, match on Saturday and generally just good recommendations for the trip.

Groundhopping Tours gets my absolute warmest recommendation.

Good experience for Boca Juniors match

We were in Buenos Aires on holiday and bought tickets through Groundhopping Tours for Boca Juniors' home game.

Everything about the match worked perfectly with the local guide, so there was no reason for insecurity or confusion about the slightly complicated access procedure.

Things are under control when you buy tickets here - even if it's on the other side of the globe.
