    With the UNESCO Cup and a fourth anniversary to celebrate, Juventus Stadium and JMuseum open their doors for a unique occasion tomorrow night

    Four years ago on 8 September 2011, a new era began as the Old Lady of Italian football found a new home. In its brief existence, Juventus Stadium has already played host to a lifetime of memories, producing unforgettable moments and four league title triumphs. 

    In what promises to be a unique occasion for all members of the Juve family, the Legends of two of the world’s most prestigious clubs, Juventus and Boca Juniors, meet for the second edition of the UNESCO Cup. There could be no better way to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the home of the champions. 

    Bianconeri supporters, once more, will play a part in writing another chapter of Juventus history. For those hoping to catch a glimpse of their old heroes back in the black and white one last time, or even for those who have never experienced a live match at Juventus Stadium, Tuesday night’s festivities represent the perfect opportunity.

    Lending their services to the cause, with all proceeds going to UNESCO and Juventus’ projects supporting child soldiers in Mali and Central Africa, will be a host of familiar faces from the club’s illustrious past. To read the squad list of the Juventus Legends side is to take a walk through Bianconeri history.

    Starting from the back, goalkeepers Angelo Peruzzi and Stefano Tacconi will team up once more with Ciro Ferrara, Mark Iuliano, Paolo Montero, Alessandro Birindelli, Zoran Mirkovic and Moreno Torricelli, all appearing in their second UNESCO Cup.

    Further forward, also making consecutive UNESCO bows are the likes of Mauro Camoranesi, Edgar Davids and Pavel Nedved. This legendary trio of Juve midfielders will be looking to supply plenty of ammunition to a strikeforce of Fabrizio Ravanelli, Nicola Amoruso and Salvatore Schillaci.

    Among the forward ranks will also be Juventus Legends president and ambassador, David Trezeguet, who represented the club in Africa alongside UNESCO last June.

    In a Twitter question and answer session with fans last Saturday, David emphasised the importance of the projects in place and the objectives of the initiatives, to give children a better future.

    Before the action begins however at Juventus Stadium, the JMuseum will also open its doors with special visiting hours and with reduced prices, for those with a ticket for the game.

    Fans will have the chance to relive Juventus' past with seven guided tours throughout the day (11.00, 11.30, 12.30, 13.00, 14.45, 15.15, 16.15) ahead of the big kick-off at 20.45 CEST.

    The anniversary of an iconic stadium, a meeting of Legends and a gathering in the name of a fantastic cause: Tuesday night’s celebrations are not to be missed.
