A month ago Juventus won the Serie A title for the third consecutive season. Those images of captain Buffon holding the trophy aloft, surrounded by his team-mates, is now part of club history and being a part of that moment was a privilege for every Juventus fan. Living it as it happens though, at Juventus Stadium, is something that goes above and beyond that: it’s a feeling of pure joy, of unadulterated satisfaction. It also gives you the chance to one day retell the fantastic story and proudly add, "I was there!"
That’s all in the past now though. Juve and their fans are used to looking to the future - not back at our last success, but forward to our next. Now we're ready to savour a new season together, ready for another "I was there" opportunity.
There's only one way to make sure you're a part of that: become a season ticket holder. Which you can do from Thursday 19 June. That is the date when season tickets for the 2014/15 Serie A campaign will go on sale, starting with renewals.
From 19 June to 3 July you can confirm your seat from last season, while on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 July you'll be able to renew and ask for a different seat number.
Should season tickets not sell out during the renewals phase, Juventus will be able to issue new season tickets: on Tuesday 8 July to members of the J1897 programme (who must be on the waiting list before 19 June), then from Wednesday 9 until Saturday 12 June to both Premium Members and J1897 Members.
Any subsequent general on-sale will run from Tuesday 15 to Saturday 19 July.
Only by purchasing a season ticket can you make sure of your place at all 19 Bianconeri Serie A games at Juventus Stadium, and enjoy the great new offers being introduced next season: exclusive benefits such as having a priority option on Champions League tickets. From next season it will be possible to make a name change or enjoy a special tariff on Champions League tickets bought during the priority phase.
In addition, next season fans will be able to personally manage their own season ticket via the new Juventus.com section "My season ticket", which will be available from the end of July. By registering on the official website and inserting their Fan Card (tessera del tifoso) number, fans will be able to make use of dedicated services such as transferring their ticket to another person and having access to the official Secondary Ticketing service (available from 30 September).
The name change on tickets is perhaps the most interesting new option: do you have a close friend or relative you would like to share your season ticket with? Fine, now you can change the name on your ticket with no fuss. Like in any successful team, the season ticket holder will remain the "first-choice player" but have the opportunity to name three reserves who can use the season ticket for an unlimited number of matches should the named ticket holder not be able to attend.
Finally, we're introducing Secondary Ticketing: a fantastic opportunity for season ticket holders to plan their entire season.
As much as every single game at Juventus Stadium is worth attending, sometimes it is impossible for fans living far from Turin to attend all the matches, so they are forced to miss the odd game or two. From 30 September it will now be possible to put season ticket seats back on sale for a single game through the official Juventus channels and obtain, once the transaction has been completed, a credit for the value established for that match. This value will always be visible in the "Fixture list" section of the "My season ticket" page and can be redeemed online against tickets for Champions League or Coppa Italia matches (which can only be issued in the name of the season ticket holder), tickets for the J-Museum or Stadium Tour (even for other people), or as part-payment for the 2015/16 season ticket.
