Juventus Stadium, known for sponsorship reasons as the Allianz Stadium since July 2017, sometimes simply known in Italy as the Stadium (Italian: Lo Stadium), is an all-seater football stadium in the Vallette borough of Turin, Italy, and the home of Juventus F.C. The stadium was built on the site of Juventus’ and Torino’s former home, the Stadio delle Alpi, and is one of only four club-owned football stadiums in Serie A, alongside Sassuolo’s Mapei Stadium, Udinese’s Stadio Friuli, and Atalanta B.C.‘s stadium. It was opened at the start of the 2011–12 season and has a capacity of just over 41,000 spectators.
Juventus played the first match in the stadium on 8 September 2011 against the world’s oldest professional football club Notts County, on 8 September 2011 in a friendly which ended 1–1; Luca Toni scored the first goal. The first competitive match was against Parma three days later, where Stephan Lichtsteiner scored the stadium’s first competitive goal in the 16th minute. Juventus only lost three matches of their first 100 Italian top-flight league matches at the Juventus Stadium.
The stadium hosted the 2014 UEFA Europa League Final. It also houses many other add-ons such as the J-Museum, J-Medical and the J-Village.
