During the 2008–09 football season, A.S. Roma played their 76th season in Serie A.

As in the previous season, Roma achieved second place in Serie A, so they will compete in the 2008–09 UEFA Champions League starting from the group stage. Further, because giallorossi won the 2007–08 Coppa Italia, they will play the 2008 Supercoppa Italiana for the third consecutive time against Internazionale.
