The Juventus Football Club , short Juventus FC or Juve , known in German-speaking countries as Juventus Turin , is an Italian football company founded in 1897 from the Piedmontese capital Turin . Other names are La Vecchia Signora ("The Old Lady") and I Bianconeri ("The White and Black").

Juventus FC is one of the most successful football clubs in the world and is Italy's record champions with officially 36 Scudetti won . The club is one of three Italian football companies listed on the Borsa Italiana .

The club's home ground is the Juventus Stadium , which opened in 2011 .


Beginnings (1897–1923)

Juventus FC (1898)
The championship team of Juventus FC in 1905

Juventus was founded in 1897 by 13 students from the Massimo d'Azeglio high school in Turin as the Juventus sports club . The founders of the association were the brothers Enrico and Eugenio Canfari , Gioacchino and Alfredo Armano, Francesco Daprà, Domenico Donna , Carlo Ferrero , Luigi Forlano , Luigi Gibezzi, Umberto Malvano , Enrico Piero Molinatti, Umberto Savoia and Vittorio Varetti. Eugenio Canfari acted as the first president. In 1898 it was renamed Juventus Football Club (Juventus is Latin for "youth").

Juventus has been playing in the Italian championship since 1900, which was won for the first time in 1905 with an unexpected success over the then serial champions CFC Genoa . In the following years, however, the Turinians were unable to build on this success.

Beginning of engagement with Edoardo Agnelli (1923–1970)

The turning point came in 1923 when Edoardo Agnelli , father of the famous Giovanni Agnelli , entered into a partnership with the club and acted as a sponsor on July 24th . Since then, the history of the club has been inextricably linked with the Agnelli family. In the same year Virginio Rosetta moved from US Pro Vercelli to Juventus Turin for 50,000 Italian lire at the time - the first documented professional player transfer. This also marked the beginning of (Italian) professional football. The team was soon further strengthened and in 1926 celebrated the second championship title. Juventus quickly became a serial winner. Between 1931 and 1935 five titles followed in a row, this period went down in club history as Quinquennio d'Oro . In 1933 Juventus played for the first time at the Stadio Comunale .

Serious setbacks soon followed, however. In 1935 Edoardo Agnelli was killed in a plane crash and a few years later the Second World War left its traces of devastation through Europe. At the time, local rivals AC Turin were the dominant team in the city. In 1947 Giovanni Agnelli took over the presidency of the association. His work is associated less with the two following championship titles than with the commitment of striker Giampiero Boniperti .

Giovanni Agnelli soon retired as acting club president and left the post to his brother Umberto . Under his leadership, the tenth title followed and with it the first championship star .

On October 1, 1958, the club suffered one of the biggest defeats in the first round of the European Cup. Against the Austrian club Wiener Sport-Club , Juventus were eliminated as favorites despite a 3-1 home win with a 7-0 defeat away.

In the 1960/61 season there was a controversial championship: On April 16, 1961, a Derby d'Italia against Inter took place in the Stadio Comunale , which should decide the championship. After a post shot by the Milanese, the crowd at the crowded stadium rioted, which caused the referee to abandon the game. The victory was awarded to Inter and the Milanese took the lead. After an objection from Juventus, however, the association decided on June 3, 1961, one match day before the end of the championship, to schedule a replay. The decision was particularly explosive because Umberto Agnelli was not only President of Juventus, but also of the Italian Football Association at the time. Inter's management was so angry about what had happened that they decided to let the youth team play at the game. Juventus won 9-1 and with it the title. Omar Sívori , named Europe's Footballer of the Year that same year , scored six goals in that game.

In 1971 Giampiero Boniperti rose to the position of president after having worked in the management of the club for ten years after his active career. The first international successes then fell into the presidential Bonipertis: UEFA Cup (1977), Cup Winners' Cup (1984) and Champions Cup (1985). With this, Juventus Turin finally rose to the ranks of major European clubs. Boniperti signed a number of successful coaches and players, including coach Giovanni Trapattoni and some of the most important players of the time: Michel Platini , Dino Zoff , Paolo Rossi , Roberto Bettega , Gaetano Scirea and Fabio Capello . The latter returned to Juventus in 2004 as a coach.

In 1985, the year of its great success, there was a tragedy in the final. In the final of the national champions' cup on May 29, 1985, Juventus faced the English champions Liverpool FC as opponents . In the Heysel Stadium in Brussels , Italian and English fans were confronted with mutual provocations before the game started. A large number of English hooligans finally stormed “Sector Z” of the Heysel Stadium about an hour before the start of the game, in which neutral fans should have been seated, but were actually mainly Italian fans. They then fled the block in a panic , some people were trampled to death, others were crushed on the fences and walls. Part of the walls of the dilapidated stadium collapsed and other fans were buried. A total of 39 people died that day and over 400 were injured. The disaster that was triggered by the English fans prompted UEFA to impose draconian penalties. English clubs were not allowed to take part in international competitions for five years and Liverpool FC for seven years. The game itself was kicked off in order to avoid further riots and was decided in favor of Juventus by a controversial penalty from Michel Platini.

In April 2005, the two clubs met again for the first time since 1985. On the sidelines of the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals in Turin, serious riots broke out around the stadium by Italian hooligans who swore revenge for Heysel .

In 1990 he moved to the unpopular Stadio delle Alpi and made other great international successes. Shortly before the move, Boniperti retired as president and has been honorary president of the club ever since.

In Turin, even with local rivals Torino Calcio, there was little enthusiasm for the stadium built especially for the 1990 World Cup . Architectural flaws are the main reason the stadium has never been accepted by fans. The playing field is barely visible in some places from the back rows and is up to 162 meters away. Officially, it had a capacity of over 70,000 seats, but due to restrictions imposed by the UEFA and FIFA associations , the actual capacity was reached at around 60,000 spectators. Incidentally, it was built as a multifunctional stadium, which can also be used for athletics events. In fact, to date it has only been used once, in 1993.

As early as the mid-1990s, tensions between the club and the city administration increased because of the concession for the stadium. In 1995, after a lack of agreement on rental costs , the club's management decided to move the upcoming home games in the semi-finals and later in the final of the UEFA Cup to the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium in Milan , where both games were completely sold out, each with 85,000 spectators.

In terms of sport, the 1990s were the most successful time in the club's history. All major titles have been won. Under coach Marcello Lippi , Juventus Turin was able to move into the final of the Champions League three years in a row three years after the third UEFA Cup title and win the second title there.

After the European Championship in England in 1996 , the then relatively unknown Zinédine Zidane moved to Juve . The attacking midfielder became a world-class player during his years at Juventus and was named FIFA World Player of the Year in 1998 and 2000 . For the highest transfer sum in the history of football at the time of 71.6 million euros, Zidane finally moved to Real Madrid in 2001 .

Another notable game took place in early 1999. When the controversial Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan was arrested in Rome at the end of 1998 , the Champions League game between Juventus Turin and Galatasaray Istanbul in Turkey was particularly politically explosive. Despite protests from both clubs, UEFA President Lennart Johansson insisted on keeping the time and place of the event. Never before has a team and a football match been secured by police forces on this scale. The game itself was unspectacular, but the surrounding area generated tremendous media interest. Over a billion viewers from 24 countries followed the hype around the game due to the precarious political situation. But within the stadium guarded by 22,500 police officers and on the sidelines of the game, there were neither riots nor riots.

At the end of 2001, Juventus Turin went public as the third Italian club . After the two Roman clubs AS Roma and Lazio Roma , Juventus also offered shares for free trading on the Milan Stock Exchange. Around 35 percent of the company's capital has been traded since then. The majority owner is still the Agnelli family, whose financial holding Exor holds over 60% of the shares.

After the IPO, an agreement was reached with the city administration. With the capital gained, the stadium was bought by the city of Turin for 25 million euros and became the property of the club. Thus the plans of the club made it possible to demolish the old Stadio delle Alpi and to build the planned Juventus Stadium in the same place , a pure football stadium for a maximum of 42,000 spectators.

In 2004 the media dealt with a doping affair involving the Juventus team. The club's doctor Riccardo Agricola stood next to managing director Antonio Giraudo for alleged systematic doping. The trigger were doping allegations by Zdeněk Zeman , who had accused the players of Juventus, in particular Del Piero , in 1998 "unnatural muscle gains". The allegation of systematic blood doping by administering EPO to numerous players was negotiated between 1994 and 1998. The allegations were directed primarily against former midfielders Antonio Conte and Alessio Tacchinardi . In November 2004, the court finally sentenced team doctor Riccardo Agricola to a prison term of one year and ten months in the first instance , while managing director Antonio Giraudo was acquitted of the allegations. In the second instance, Agricola was acquitted of the charge of blood doping. Giraudo's acquittal was confirmed.

Orange highlighted: Series B & Promotion won

In the spring of 2006, eavesdropping protocols became known, according to which, among other things, the club's manager at the time, Luciano Moggi , had spoken to various officials of the Italian Football Association. For the public prosecutor it was obvious that Moggi had manipulated the 2004/05 season and that Juve had bought the championship. After the public prosecutor's office had started the investigation, the entire board of the club around Moggi and Antonio Giraudo , who was sentenced to three years in prison on December 14, 2009, as well as the president of the Italian Football Association , Franco Carraro , resigned in May 2006 . Regardless of the investigation, Juventus won their game against Reggina Calcio the following weekend and thus actually their 28th Scudetto .

On July 14, 2006, however, the first verdict of the Italian Football Association took place, after which the club lost the championship titles of the 2004/05 and 2005/06 seasons . The exact name of the offense was "structured sports fraud". In addition, Juve was sentenced to play the 2006/07 season in Serie B and start with 30 minus points. The club's management immediately appealed, and the appeal committee later reduced the original penalty by reducing the penalty points for the coming season from 30 to 17. The verdict was generally received with great resentment, as in contrast to the other major clubs involved, AC Milan , AC Florence and Lazio Rome , which were only deducted points, had to be relegated. The club's management around the new president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli had set itself the goal of fighting until the forced relegation was revised. They wanted to proceed against the judgment before the administrative court Tribunale Amministrativo del Lazio (TAR). This would have meant leaving the level of sports jurisdiction and going to a civil court. As a result, FIFA President Sepp Blatter intervened and threatened the Italian Football Association with draconian penalties for this case, including a ban on Italian clubs from participating in the European Cup.

The club's management did not want to accept the judgment at first, but decided on August 31, 2006, under the conditions of the Collegio Arbitrale der Coni, the National Olympic Committee of Italy ( Comitato Olimpico Nazionale Italiano ), to be heard again, not to appeal and the verdict to accept the sports jurisdiction.

The last hearing took place on October 11, 2006, followed by the verdict on October 27, 2006, according to which Juve was granted another eight minus points.

As a result of the forced relegation, some top performers such as Fabio Cannavaro , Gianluca Zambrotta , Lilian Thuram , Zlatan Ibrahimović and Patrick Vieira left the club. The world champions Gianluigi Buffon , Alessandro Del Piero and Mauro Camoranesi as well as the French striker David Trezeguet and the Czech Pavel Nedvěd remained loyal to the club. The new coach Didier Deschamps was established with a mix of experienced stars and young players together a team after a draw in the opening game in Rimini started with eight consecutive victories in the season and is the favorite for promotion to the Serie A was considered. The Italian record champions lived up to this role and won the Serie B championship for the first time in the club's history . Nevertheless, the board and trainer Deschamps decided to end the collaboration. Claudio Ranieri took over the coaching position for the 2007/08 season .

Highlighted in green: winning the championship

After a new coach with Antonio Conte was signed at the beginning of the 2011/12 season , Juventus finally found their way back to success and also played offensive and respectable football. Under Conte they completed the season without defeat and were sovereign champions. In addition, the newly built Juventus Stadium was opened on September 8, 2011 . They also qualified for the group stage of the Champions League for the first time since the 2008/09 season . They also celebrated successes in the Coppa Italia , only in the cup final they were defeated by SSC Napoli 0-2. After this season, club legend and record player Alessandro Del Piero left the club after 19 years.

At the beginning of the 2012/13 season they won against SSC Napoli in the Supercup in Beijing with 4: 2 nV and won the second title of the year. On May 5, 2013 Juventus won the 29th Italian championship with a 1-0 win over US Palermo . However, fans and players celebrated with the number 31, as fans and club still count the two titles lost due to the manipulation scandal.

Current developments (since 2014)

Juventus' championship team for the 2016/17 season

During the preparation for the 2014/15 season , Juventus and coach Antonio Conte surprisingly split up due to differences in personnel planning. A day later, Massimiliano Allegri was introduced as a new head coach, and the rest of the coaching team was also replaced. After initial protests from the fans against the former Milan coach, Allegri was able to confirm the decision of the club management through successes: With 17 points ahead of AS Roma they were early champions , in the final of the Coppa Italia they also beat Lazio 2-1 Conquer extra time and make the national double perfect. In the Champions League they moved into the semi-finals after a mixed group phase with victories against Borussia Dortmund and AS Monaco . There the ten-time title holder Real Madrid was defeated by a 2-1 home win in the first leg and a 1-1 in Madrid. Thus, for the first time in 12 years, the final of a European competition was reached. At the final in Berlin , the opponent was again a Spanish team with FC Barcelona . Juventus was able to compensate for an early 0-1 deficit in the second half with Álvaro Morata , but 13 minutes later Barcelona took the lead again and won the game 3-1 in the end.

In the 2015/16 season , the league had its worst start to the season since 1969. The derby win on October 31, 2015 against city rivals FC Turin brought the turning point. A series of 15 wins in a row brought the team back to first place. On April 25, 2016, AS Roma secured their fifth championship in a row thanks to a 1-0 victory for AS Roma against their first rival SSC Napoli . Shortly after winning the new championship, they secured their second double in a row in the final against AC Milan. Juventus is the first Italian team to successfully defend the double. Player of the season were Gianluigi Buffon , Paul Pogba and Paulo Dybala . In the Champions League they were eliminated in the round of 16 against Bayern Munich . After the 2-2 home game, Juventus led 2-0 early on after a convincing performance in the second leg in Munich. However, FC Bayern was able to save itself in extra time in stoppage time and scored two more goals to make it 4-2.

In January 2017 Juventus presented its new club logo. The main reason for the change is the digital age. The advantages of the new club emblem can be seen on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The new logo is now clearly recognizable on small icons and without any pixel errors. The logo consists of three elements: A black “J” for Juventus forms the characteristic black and white Juve stripe with a black side stripe set at a distance. The two elements together have the shape of a shield, which is an allusion to the championship title in Serie A, the Scudetto (Italian for "small shield"). The word "Juventus" is incorporated above these two elements. The logo is also often used in the negative .

In the 2016/17 season Juventus reached the final of the Champions League again , in which they met Real Madrid again. Mario Mandžukić was able to compensate for the early 0: 1 deficit by Cristiano Ronaldo for Juve within a few minutes of the game, but in the end Juventus lost 4 1: 4. So you had to accept the seventh defeat in the ninth European Cup or Champions League final, which is the negative record in the competition.

Game and training facilities

Historic venues

The first venue was the Campo di Piazza d'armi from 1900 to 1903 . From 1904 to 1907 the club used the Velodromo Umberto I , from 1908 to 1922 the Stadio di Corso Sebastopoli and from 1922 to 1934 Juventus played its home games in the Stadio di Corso Marsiglia . In 1934 Juventus Turin moved into the Stadio Comunale, which had been built a year earlier . On the occasion of the 1990 World Cup , the Stadio delle Alpi was built in Turin , which served as a home for both Turin clubs until 2006.


Juventus Turin presented plans for a new stadium in January 2007. The entire project was originally tied to Italy being awarded the 2012 European Football Championship . On April 18, 2007, however, the award fell to Poland and Ukraine . Nevertheless, the association decided to build a new building. The entire complex was opened in 2011 and houses the new stadium with over 41,000 spectator seats, a club museum, restaurants, fan shops and a shopping center. The construction costs amounted to 155 million euros.


Fans and followers

Drughi in the Stadio Comunale (1973)

The Juventus supporters are often referred to as gobbi ( gobbo, Italian for “hunchback”), the club as vecchia signora ( Italian for “old lady”). The name is based on the fact that Juventus Turin football shirts formed a hump on the back when running in the 1950s.

According to regular surveys, over 20% of Italians are Juventus fans. In Turin itself, however, FC Turin has long been considered the more popular team. In recent years, however, a U-turn has been observed, so that Juventus should be more popular today. This is probably due to the persistent since the 1960s wave of immigration southern Italian immigrants due to Turin. The popularity of Turin FC also suffers from persistent sporting failures. In Milan, on the other hand, the venue of arch-rivals AC Milan and Inter Milan , Juventus Turin enjoys an unexpectedly high reputation. Internationally, according to a survey by the statistics institute Nielsen in June 2012, over 200 million people are supporters of the Turin association.

An ultra fan group is called Drughi .

The Italian Cardinal Secretary of State and Juventus Turin supporter Tarcisio Bertone SDB has occasionally played the role of stadium commentator in the past.


Torino FC

The games between Juve and their city rivals FC Turin form the Derby della Mole .

It was created by the journalist Gianni Brera . Since the beginning of the Italian premier league operations, both clubs and AC Milan have been regular competitors for the Italian championship. In addition, until 2006, Juventus and Inter were the only two teams that have always played in this league since Serie A was founded in 1929 .

AC Milan

Club colors and crests

Juventus Turin has been wearing the signature white and black jersey since 1903. An English emigrant wanted to equip the team with new equipment that year and commissioned it in Nottingham . However, there was a mix-up and so instead of the pink players' clothing black and white jerseys from the English football club Notts County were delivered to Italy.

The former, long-standing club coat of arms in the form of an oval shield combined the colors of the club and the coat of arms of the city of Turin , it showed the lettering Juventus in the upper part and a raised bull in the lower part.
