With domestic league action on hold, Juve’s international stars won’t be the only ones making appearances around the world in the coming days.
Also fishing out his passport and boarding card this week will be J, as our new mascot heads state-side to join in with Sunday’s Italian Heritage Parade festivities in San Francisco.
On the invitation of the Juventus Club Doc supporters association based in the city, J will fly the Bianconero flag at the parade, traditionally staged on the eve of Columbus Day, to celebrate the Italian explorer’s arrival in the New World in 1492.
Aboard his Jeep, amidst a host of floats, costumes and Italian culture and cuisine, the J-Kids king is set to take centre stage once more while spending the day spreading the Juventus word in the Californian city.
But that won’t be our mascot’s only duty: we’ll be sending J across the Atlantic with his own camera to capture all the best moments from the day’s proceedings.
To follow our mascot in his adventure, head on over to the official Juventus English language Twitter account, @juventusfcen.
