      A HISTORY OF VIAREGGIO CUP

      Juventus enters the tournament with nine titles won, even for the most with Milan. The last Bianconero title came in 2016 under manager Fabio Grosso when the Bianconeri overcame Palermo 3-2. 

      The first time the Bianconeri emerged victorious in this tournament was 1961 achieving a 2-0 win over Vicenza in the final. 

      They wouldn't lift the trophy again until 1994 with a Del Piero goal downing Fiorentina in extra-time. Then, starting in 2003, Juventus would record a hat-trick of victories beating Slavia Prague in the 2003 final, Empoli in 2004 and Genoa in 2005. The three consecutive wins is a record that still stands today. 

      Victories over Sampdoria in the 2009 final and Empoli in 2010 (with a Ciro Immobile hat-trick) brought further Viareggio Cup trophies to Turin with another win coming in 2013 over Roma in the final.
