Juventus FC

Juventus football club is a professional top flight Italian football club based in Turin, Piedmont. They are popularly known as Juve or the 'Old Lady'.

Founded in the year of 1897 as an athletics club, Juventus has been a constant presence in the Serie A since 1900. Juventus are one of the most decorated teams in Italy and the whole of Europe. They have a whopping 36 league titles, 14 Coppa Italia titles, 2 Intercontinental Cups, 2 European Champions Clubs' Cup, 2 UEFA Champions League titles, 3 UEFA Cups and 2 UEFA Super Cups.


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 up to 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 color was inspired by the black and white strips 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 witnessed some great moments in it. The club has won 9 consecutive Serie A titles from 2011-12 season to 2019-20 season which is a phenomenal feat for the Italian giants.


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 honors 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.
