September 8th will usher in a new era for Juventus as they take to the field in the brand new Juventus Arena for the very first time. English side Notts County will be the club’s first opponents to mark the grand opening of Juve’s new home after a special request from the Italian side.
Everybody involved with the Old Lady will be hoping the move to the 41,000-seat stadium and the appointment of Antonio Conte as manager will see the club return to the glory days of yesteryear. The Turin side have not had the best of times since they were demoted to Serie B in 2006, and the new ground signals a fresh start for the club both on and off the field.
The club left their former home, the Stadio delle Alpi, back in 2006 after 16 years and returned to the Stadio Olimpico after it was renovated for the 2006 Winter Olympics. Five years later the club are on the move once again with the aptly named Juventus Arena built on the club’s former ground where they shared so many great memories between 1990 and 2006.
So many great players pulled on the famous black and white jersey at the Stadio delle Alpi; here are our top five.
