Nicholas Serra and Leanne Howard, two Australian Bianconeri fans who got married at the end of August in Brisbane – the happiest day of their lives - spent the “second happiest day” of their lives last Saturday as guests of Juventus for the team’s first home match of the season against Lazio.
Their joy at visiting Juventus Stadium was thanks to “A day with Juve”, a Premium Member International competition which gave them the chance to attend the match at the home of the champions of Italy, as well as meet the players and coaching staff.
Describing their incredible visit, Leanne said: “I have never experienced anything like it in my life. It was such an exciting day, and the atmosphere in the stadium is incredible.”
Nicholas recounted how their decision came about: “It was my wife’s idea to sign me up for Premium Membership International as a present, and when we were planning our trip we knew we wanted to go and see the Juve team that we both love.”
The groom has Italian roots, and has been a Bianconeri fan since he was a boy, he explained: “I was five when some family friends of ours brought me a Juventus shirt back from their holidays in Italy. I’ve supported them ever since, and I follow the team on the internet, through satellite TV and on smartphone apps.”
Last Saturday, though, “A day with Juve” allowed him to see his Bianconeri heroes in the flesh, a truly special experience.
