Juventus will be assisted in their preparations for the upcoming 2013/14 campaign by using the state-of-the-art facilities on offer at the prestigious Stanford University in California.
Founded in 1891, Stanford University is not just famed for its high-quality educational programme and top academic results, but also for its success across 36 different varsity sports practiced on a magnificent 8,180-acre campus.
With a total of 129 Olympic gold medals amassed by its alumni, Stanford University has forged a reputation as the perfect breeding ground for sporting champions. An ideal place, therefore, for the Italian champions to begin working towards a third successive Scudetto title.
To thank Stanford University for their magnificent welcome, Antonio Conte met Senior Associate Athletic Director Earl Koberlein, Men’s Soccer Head Coach Jeremy Gunn and Men’s Soccer Assistant Coach John Smith at the conclusion of this morning’s training session at Cagan Stadium.
Conte presented the Bianconeri’s hosts with a black and white shirt, while Stanford University repaid the favour with a replica strip of their own, officially marking the start of a fruitful partnership between two sporting greats.
