How many spectators can the Allianz Stadium host?
The capacity is about 41,507.
What is the minimum distance from the pitch?
The minimum distance between the first row of seats and the pitch is 7.5m.
How much parking space is available to fans?
There are 4,000 car spaces entirely reserved to fans.
How high are the stadium pennants?
86 m high.
How much does the overhead covering weigh?
The main structure consists of four large reverse arched beams with a maximum height of 7.5m, 125 and 90 meters long per side and weigh a total 1,300 tons.
The secondary structure consists of 60, 40m long beams, runways and infrastructure weighing 1,100 tons. The total weight, therefore, is 3,700 tons.
What material is the exterior covering of the stadium made of?
The exterior covering of the stadium consists of more than 7,000 elements in alucobond that form a "skin" that recalls the Italian flag and the stars representing the league titles won by the team.
Was the installation of the 8 tie rods on the four corners of the stadium part of the project from the beginning, or was it added on to fix construction miscalculations?
This solution was part of the project from the very beginning (2008).
Why don't the tie rods appear in the first renderings?
The tie rods do not appear in the first renderings because they were initially conceived to represent a synthesis of the elements that form the construction as a whole, without details of the structural parts.
In both cases, were alternative solutions suggested to Juventus that would not obstruct the view of spectators? If so, why were they rejected?
The designers always considered the tie rods a solution that did not affect view of the match, which is why they never considered other possible alternatives.
Did Juventus assess the actual impact of the tie rods on the quality of the view for spectators, both in terms of number of seats involved and on a visual impact level?
Juventus considered the impact of the tie rods as minimal and acceptable, considering their low impact on the audience's visibility. It should be added that the seats in the stands with "obstructed visibility" in certain cases are not included in the season pass program and in other cases are sold at a discounted price compared to adjacent sectors and only at the official Ticket office of Juventus. The remaining seats with "obstructed visibility" are sold, as in past seasons at Stadio Olimpico, only for single matches and only when seats in sectors with perfect visibility are sold out. Moreover, promotions for the sale of tickets in these sectors have been offered, because of their corner position.
A comparison with other sports facilities in other European countries has shown that in some cases there are seats with low visibility; these are seats where the view of the pitch is obstructed partly by elements such as columns, railings, other structural elements of the stadium or, as for instance at the Camp Nou of Barcelona and the Allianz Arena of Munich, by poles that support the nets set-up behind the goals and in front of the North and South stands.
Have you made plans to charge different prices for tickets to these sectors?
See answer to previous question.
Are you considering the possibility of removing the tie rods in the future, opting for a different solution?
No such solution is being studied presently.
Have you considered the symbolic impact of this project choice?
Juventus took the opportunity to create the best stadium possible, entrusting to a team of top international designers the task of designing a stadium that could compete with the best sporting venues in Europe and worldwide, and the fruit of that endeavour is a structure of this kind. Juventus is the first and only company that, without the need for special laws or public funds, and without tarnishing the financial resources for the team, has inaugurated a stadium that is a pioneering monument in Europe and one of a kind in Italy.
Has Juventus contacted UEFA and FIFA to have the stadium approved for the most prestigious international competitions?
Allianz Stadium is type-approved in accordance with the criteria of all the official football associations and can host UEFA and FIFA matches.
Has Juventus verified that the tie rods do not preclude the possibility of hosting the Champions League final and World Cup matches?
The Allianz Stadium is type-approved to host all phases of any competition, except the Champions League final. To host a Champions League final, in fact, a stadium must have a capacity of at least 50,000. This capacity was considered too large for the structure's functionality, as the stadium is meant to be a hub that attracts visitors throughout the week and not only on match days. During the presentation of the dossier for the European Championships of 2016, FIGC was very pleased with Allianz Stadium and informally assigned it the semi-final.
To what legislation did Juventus refer in carrying out the structural analysis and relevant inspections?
To Law 1086 and the last M.D. in force.
Did Juventus make a 3D structural model of the entire structure?
Yes, it did.
What calculation model did you use?
See answer to previous question.
What particular load combination requires the use of tie rods? Have you conducted tests on models built to scale in wind tunnels?
The steel cables on the four corners of the covering and fastened to the elements in reinforced concrete that separate the floor of Allianz Stadium, which divide the terraces in four stands, are the fruit of rigorous calculations made during project design and tested in wind tunnels. The designers placed special care and attention on the positioning of the anchoring bolts, which are aligned with the stand partitions, whose stairs on top of the partitions contribute to distancing the seats, precisely to ensure visibility to all spectators.
If the choice was a miscalculation, why did you opt for the cheapest solution when all the costs to re-design and build the variant were supposed to be covered by the designer ex art. 111 and 132.2 of Italian Legislative Decree 163/06?
As already explained, the choice to include the tie rods was not a project error.
