Juventus Stadium

The Juventus Stadium was constructed in 2011 and has a capacity of 40,000. The first club-owned stadium in Italy, it is located in Turin and is the home to Italian football club Juventus FC.

The stadium is built in the place of Juventus’s former stadium Delle Alpi, and costs around £ 100 million.


Juventus v Borussia Dortmund - UEFA Champions League Round of 16


History


Juventus shared their home ground with Torino FC when they played at the Stadio Delle Alpi. The new stadium was built to host the 1990 FIFA World Cup, but Juventus fans were not happy with the stadium as the lighting and view from the stands were not upto the mark.


Due to the track around the pitch, the stands were very far from the action and the 70,000 capacity stadium had a lack of atmosphere as well.


In 2003, Juventus shifted to the Stadio Olimpico along with Torino after declaring they would be making a new stadium. Stadio Delle Alpi was demolished in 2008, and the Juventus stadium was built on September 2011 and is owned by the club, contrary to the previous stadiums which were owned by the Turin government.


Major Matches


The first match played at the Juventus Stadium was a friendly between the Italian club and the oldest professional football club in the world Notts County FC- the result being 1-1- which was to mark the historic ties the clubs have.


Back in 1903, the club’s jersey colour was inspired by the black and white colour of English club Notts County FC.


The 2014 Europa League final was held in the Juventus Stadium between Sevilla and SL Benfica, which was won by Sevilla on penalties after the match ended 0-0.


Ever since the team moved into the stadium in 2011, Juventus have a record of just six home defeats in 6 years across many competitions, namely the Italian League, the Italian Cup and the European Cups. They have also won the Italian league Serie A six times in a row.


FC Bayern Munich and FC Barcelona are the only European clubs to have won on an away visit in the Champions League at the Juventus Stadium.



Trivia


There is a Hall of Fame, the Juventus Museum, a shopping center and many restaurants and bars in and within the vicinity of the stadium. The Hall of Fame is built along the entrance to the pitch and honours 50 players from the club’s history.


In 2017, the club announced a 6-year naming rights sponsorship deal with German insurer Allianz resulting in the new name Allianz Stadium of Turin, or simply Allianz Stadium.
