JTC Vinovo

TRAINING CENTER FOR JUVENTUS WOMEN, THE U23s AND THE BIANCONERI YOUTH TEAMS

It has been the heart of the preparation of the First Team for years and it is now the home of Juventus Women, the Under 23 team and a large part of the Juventus youth teams. It is the Juventus Training Center in Vinovo, a state-of-the-art structure, where day after day an important part of the Juventus world comes to life.

THE INCEPTION

The Vinovo project, created to to host the First Team’s training and more, took its first steps at the beginning of the new millennium, in the early 2000s in fact, some areas (a total of 150,000 square metres) previously owned by the nearby Hippodrome were acquired. Juventus drew up the project and Gilardi Costruzioni headed up the work, and in 2006 the training centre was completed. There are eight pitches encompassed in the structure, which also has an area intended for the media and an entire block dedicated for the youth sector.

THE EXPANSION

In 2009, the centre saw its first major upgrade when the building that houses the area of the offices and changing rooms for the Juventus Youth was expanded in height. In 2013, the J|College was built, which then moved to Continassa, and the nearby refectory.

THE PITCHES

Today, at Vinovo there are still the eight pitches, two of which with grandstands, one with 400 seats and the other, that of the “Ale & Ricky” pitch, capable of seating 200 people and a total of 498 including standing places. This is the pitch where Juventus Women and the Under 19s play their matches (as well as the Primavera team in the UEFA Youth League) and the Under 17s, 16s and 15s. In addition, this pitch hosts Juventus Youth training sessions and events for youth football and football schools. It is also one of two synthetic pitches in the Vinovo facility: the others are grass-based and two of them, in particular, where Juventus Women and the Under 23s train, have a heated lawn.

THE LATEST UPGRADES

As previously stated, in total there are eight pitches, and here the everyday lives of Juventus Women, the Under 23s and the entire Youth sector takes place, day after day, from basic activities to Primavera games. After the relocation of the First Team to the JTC Continassa, the latest works were put into effect in 2019. In terms of infrastructure: the building once used as the Media area has become the home of the Juventus Women, whilst the Under 23s occupy the spaces once used by the Men's First Team and the area dedicated to the Youth teams has been upgraded with an office area, as well as a brand new lounge for the players, where J|College once stood.
