It's not long now until the Serie A season begins, and after completing a number of new signings and building their new stadium, Juventus have received another boost leading into the 2011-12 season. They have announced the sale of 23,000 season tickets.

Information released by the Juventus website said:

The new stadium not only holds more people (it has 41,000 seats), but also will be fitted with state-of-the-art facilities. For fans, the stadium will have a 4,000-space car park and a built-in shopping centre.

Unlike the Stadio delle Alpi, the Juventus Arena (as it is being termed now, an official name will be revealed later) will ensure that fans are much closer to the action—the closest of the seating being around 7.5m away from the pitch.

The stadium is built on the site of the Stadio delle Alpi and cost €100 million to build. It will prove to be the first stadium fully owned by any club in the Serie A.

Juventus will officially "bless" the stadium when they clash with Parma in just under a month.
