Juventus are gearing up for the start of an intense pre-season programme which officially gets underway with the team’s first training session on Friday 12 July at Chatillon’s Stadio Brunod.
Traditionally afforded a rapturous reception throughout ten days of open training sessions in Val d’Aosta, Antonio Conte’s men will also have the opportunity to treat their adoring public to a fully fledged workout, with a friendly arranged in the neighbouring town of Saint Vincent on Wednesday 17 July.
This first test of the season will subsequently be followed by the TIM Trophy, a traditional pre-season three-way tournament which, for the first time in its history, will be held at Reggio Emilia’s Stadio Città del Tricolore. Juventus will play two 45-minute matches against Milan and newly-promoted Sassuolo on Tuesday 23 July.
Three days later, on Friday 26 July, Conte’s troops are scheduled to jet off to the USA for the club’s Jeep US Tour. As well as using state-of-the-art training facilities throughout their time Stateside, Juventus will also be able to put their hard graft to the test when they make their bow in the Guinness International Champions Cup.
The Bianconeri, who have been named in the West side of the draw, will open their campaign at the home of baseball side San Francisco Giants, AT&T Park, against Everton on Wednesday 31 July at 8pm local time.
Their opponents for the following fixture, to be contested on Saturday 3 August at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, will be determined by the result against the Toffees and the outcome of LA Galaxy’s clash with Real Madrid in Phoenix, with the winners and losers to be pitted against each other.
Playing in the East are Chelsea, AC Milan, Valencia and Inter Milan.
All eight clubs participating in the tournament will then link up on Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 August in Miami, where the city’s Sun Life Stadium is to play host to the final stages.
On their return to Italy, Juventus will take part in the club’s traditional pre-season friendly against the Primavera, to be contested at Villar Perosa’s Stadio Comunale on Sunday 11 August.
