The Juventus Academy project is proceeding at full speed. This continues to happen due to the constant effort put in place by all the Juventus Academies, despite the difficulties experienced everywhere due to the health situation. This effort has not only allowed to keep alive and active a project in which Juventus has strongly believed in for years, but also to grow, practically all over the world. From India to the USA, from Australia to Russia, from Qatar to the island of Réunion, six new Juventus Academies have just started or are at the starting line.
Here are the stories of all the projects in detail:
Juventus Academy Kerala (India)
An important debut: this is in fact the first Juventus Academy in India, which will start at the beginning of April. The project starts in the Kerala region, located south of the country, with three active locations in the cities of Trivandrum, Kochi and Kottayam. This is important because a Juventus Academy in a strategic country like India strengthens the brand's presence in Asia, where the Academy project is already present in China, Thailand, Vietnam and Japan.
Juventus Academy Saint Louis (USA)
Our US family continues to grow! The new Academy in Saint Luis is in fact the tenth Juventus Academy in North America, and the first in the Mid-West area. Launched at the end of 2020, the Academy is active and offers numerous programs to boys and girls from the age of four.
Juventus Academy Perth (Australia)
The Juventus Academy in Perth is the fourth to be opened in Australia, after those opened in Melbourne, Sydney and Gold Coast. The new Academy, already active, crowns a collaboration path which started four years ago with Training Camps, and which has allowed hundreds of boys and girls to participate in Juventus activities both in Australia and in Italy. Perth was in fact one of the participating teams in the first edition of the Juventus Academy World Cup organised in 2018.
Juventus Academy Rostov-On-Don (Russia)
After the founding of the academies in Moscow and St. Petersburg in 2017, the project has now touched down in a third city in the country: Rostov-On-Don. The structure includes two indoor and two outdoor soccer fields located in two locations in the city. The starting numbers are excellent: 145 boys are already training at the new facilities.
Juventus Academy Qatar
The opening of a new Juventus Academy in Qatar means a further step forward in the presence of Juventus in the Gulf countries, where we are already present in Oman, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ras Al-Khaimah. The new Academy opens at a very important moment for football in Qatar, which is finalising its preparations for the the 2022 World Cup, and it’s a country that is a candidate to become an important hub of world football with top-level facilities. The Academy will start as soon as the restrictions currently in place on the territory allow for it.
Juventus Academy Reunion Island
Juventus Academy's activity will start after Easter on the island of Réunion, a French overseas depart in the Indian Ocean; kids will take to the field at the Stade CSM Cotur, located in the town of Le Port.
