As Juventus Stadium celebrates its five-year anniversary today, the club pays tribute to a defining moment in its long, illustrious history.
There can be no doubt that the Old Lady has enjoyed one of the most successful spells over the course of her existence since the iconic arena opened its arms to the public for the first time on 8 September 2011 for a stunning opening ceremony and inauguration match against Notts County.
“You could tell that something had changed,” was Andrea Barzagli’s instant reaction to the feeling of playing in front of a full house on that magical night. And the 128 games to have followed have proved the defender to be precisely right.
Cheered on week after week, campaign after campaign by their unrelenting ‘twelfth man’, the Bianconeri have amassed a remarkable 100 wins within Juventus Stadium’s gleaming walls, scoring 272 goals, lifting five Scudetto titles and two Coppa Italia crowns, whilst treating spectators to an exciting brand of football befitting of their status as Italy’s most prestigious club.
