Meet Juve’s new ground!

 

Built on the site of former Stadio delle Alpi, Juventus Stadium opened its doors last week, to welcome the bianconeri fans.

We have completed this project at a very difficult and delicate moment, in terms of the club’s sporting history and the macroeconomic context: Andrea Agnelli.

 

Ceremony

 

 

Notts County, who came away with a 1-1 draw, were chosen as the opponents for sentimental reasons as their black-and-white striped shirts inspired Juventus’ choice of strip when the club decided to replace their faded pink shirts in 1903, according to EuroSport.com. In return, Notts County have extended an invitation to Juventus for a return match at Meadow Lane in 2012 to celebrate County’s 150th anniversary.
