JUVENTUS HISTORY : 2007 – 2017

2007, Under Claudio Ranieri’s guidance, the Bianconeri came in third thus qualifying for the Champions League preliminary round. Captain Del Piero, the key man in a great season was top scorer with 21 goals, one more than his team mate Trezeguet. In the 2008/2009 season, Juventus had a difficult second part of the season and suffered negative results which could have affected their qualification for the Champions League.

Ciro Ferrara replaced Ranieri for the last two days of the championship and Juventus nished in second place. Ferrara was confirmed for the following season, which witnessed the return of Fabio Cannavaro and new team additions Fabio Grosso, Felipe Melo and Diego. In October Giovanni Cobolli Gigli resigned as Chairman and Jean-Claude Blanc took full control. The team, which had started out well, encountered a series of injuries which compromised their overall performance. Management changed again in late January with Zaccheroni taking over from Ferrara. The season ended with a seventh place finish and qualification for the Europa League.

2010

The turning point arrived on 19 May 2010 when Andrea Agnelli became chairman of the club and Giuseppe Marotta General Manager for the Sports Area, opening a new chapter in the team’s history. On 27 October 2010 Giuseppe Marotta was also nominated Chief Executive Officer.

The 2010/2011 season was marked by a complete overhaul of the First Team and top company management and ended with a seventh place, not enough for Juventus to qualify for the 2011/2012 European competitions, and the dismissal of manager Luigi Del Neri. In May 2011 Jean-Claude Blanc left his position and obtained a special appointment to complete the new stadium project and its inauguration. Aldo Mazzia was appointed Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer.

During the Transfer Campaign in summer 2011 the First Team continued its renewal, a job entrusted to Antonio Conte, the captain of many victorious battles.

Juventus returned home on 8 September 2011: in two years the old Delle Alpi Stadium had been dismantled and a new club-owned stadium stands in its place, the first of its kind in Italy.

The splendid inauguration ceremony included a friendly game with football’s second oldest team, Notts County, who had given its black and white jerseys to Juventus in 1903.

The Juventus Stadium (now the Allianz Stadium) is a symbol of pride for the Club, its supporters and the City of Turin. The investments made by Juventus, for around € 150 million, and its partners who developed the adjacent shopping centre, totalling approximately € 90 million, helped keep hundreds of jobs from being lost during the two years needed for its construction and continue to create new employment opportunities for running the stadium and shopping centre, also contributing to redeveloping and revitalising an entire area of the city.

A further step in this direction was taken on 14 June 2013 with the signing of the final 99-year lease agreement for a portion of the Continassa Area of approximately 176 thousand square metres next to the Juventus Stadium (now the Allianz Stadium). The Area will be the venue of the new Training and Media Center of the First Team and will house the new registered office of the company, as well as provide services to the public, to businesses and to individuals.

The 2011/2012 season will remain unforgettable: the team under the guidance of Antonio Conte and driven by the magical atmosphere of the Juventus Stadium (now the Allianz Stadium) combined performance with results ending the championship unbeaten and winning its thirtieth league title. Conte and his men played in the Italian Cup final losing to Napoli, but made up for it two months later, winning against the same team in the fifth Italian Super Cup, held in Beijing.

The J Museum was inaugurated on 16 May 2012, an ideal spot for Juventus fans to meet and retrace this unforgettable story of successes every day.

The J College was inaugurated at the Vinovo Training Centre on 5 September 2012. This is an innovative project for the Youth Sector, to help young players reconcile their sporting and school commitments in the best way possible.

In the 2012/2013 season, Juventus returned to the European stage, reaching the quarter finals in the Champions League,and winning its second league title in a row, three matches ahead of the last game, at the end of a season in which it was in the lead from day one.

The following season was triumphant: in August, another Italian Super Cup was won, and at the end of the championship Juventus was still in the lead. This was the third consecutive national championship, which had not happened since the time of the “Golden five-year period”. This success was even more exciting as a result of the amazing figures achieved by the Team, starting with the 102 points obtained. It was a record-breaking football season.

The 2014/2015 football season was no exception. The fourth consecutive championship was won by seventeen points ahead; on 20 May 2015 the tenth Italian Cup in history arrived; in the Champions League, after winning the group stage and beating Borussia Dortmund, Monaco and Real Madrid, in that order, the First Team played in the final held in Berlin on 6 June 2015, losing against Barcelona.

In the 2015/2016 season, ten new players joined the Club and the First Team took some time to get going, although it won its first trophy in August: the Italian Super Cup, played in Shanghai against Lazio. The start of the Championship was tough, and after ten matches, the team was ranked twelve, far from the lead. After a defeat at Sassuolo, the Team went full steam ahead, winning 25 out of 26 matches. Juventus beat its opponents one by one, to become the Italian Champion for the fifth year running. This is the second time the Club has won the Championships five years in a row, in its history, and to make this success even more memorable, it also won the Italian Cup, making it the second time in a row it has won both titles together.

The 2016/2017 football season ended with the Club winning its sixth consecutive League title and third consecutive Italian Cup. In the Champions League, after winning the group stage and beating Porto, Barcelona and Monaco, in that order, the First Team played in the nal held in Cardiff on 3 June 2017, losing against Real Madrid.

 

JUVENTUS HISTORY : 2006 – 2007

Towards the end of the 2005/2006 season, the club was involved in a judicial enquiry, originating from recorded telephone calls. The matter, known as “Calciopoli” brought about major changes within the club, with the election of a new Chairman, Giovanni Cobolli Gigli and CEO, Jean-Claude Blanc. Juventus was sentenced by the sporting body to play a season in Serie B and penalised nine points and the two previous Championship victories were revoked. Didier Deschamps was the new manager who began his mission with a core of champions: Del Piero, Buffon and Camoranesi, coming from Italy’s World Cup victory in Berlin as well as Trezeguet and Nedved.

 

15 December 2006 was a sad date in Juventus’ history, two boys from the Beretti team, Alessio Ferramosca and Riccardo Neri, died in a tragic accident at the Juventus Training Center in Vinovo. With a deep sadness engulfing the club, the team returned to the field the following week and beat Bologna, a decisive victory for returning to Serie A, and one that was dedicated to the memory of the two boys. Alex del Piero finished the season as the top scorer in Serie B and broke the all-time Juventus record for scored goals.

JUVENTUS HISTORY : 1996 – 2006

The final was played in Rome against reigning champs Ajax. It was 22 May 1996, it ended 1-1. Then came the penalties: the Bianconeri did not miss one, while Peruzzi saved two. Jugovic approached the penalty spot wearing a smile for the last kick. His smile turned into a cry of joy after a few seconds. Juventus became Champions of Europe.

The team underwent drastic changes the following year: offensive players Vialli and Ravanelli left, and Boksic, Vieri and Amoruso arrived. Montero and Zidane also joined the team to bolster the defence and midfield. The Bianconeri were back on the top of the world, after Del Piero’s goal clinched a victory against River Plate in the Intercontinental Cup held in Tokyo. The Championship was sealed again, as well as the UEFA Super Cup against Paris St.Germain. Unfortunately a European victory escaped the team in Munich: the Borussia Dortmund team featuring former Bianconeri Moeller and Paulo Sousa was the winner. The Champions League disappointment was repeated the following year, when the Bianconeri were defeated by Real Madrid in Amsterdam during the final. However, the championship was won once again thanks to the fine form shown by Inzaghi and Del Piero. The following season, Del Piero suffered an injury on 8 November 1998 in Udine. Juventus, without their guiding light, struggled to keep up the pace and Lippi gave way to Ancelotti on the bench.

After two unsuccessful seasons, Lippi returned home in 2001: the manager from Viareggio took over the team who, without Inzaghi and Zidane, could count on the vital signings of Buffon, Thuram and Nedved. The championship went right down to the wire: Inter were leading on the last day and played against Lazio in Rome. Juventus, in Udine, started out very strong and went ahead in the first fifteen minutes. Inter, instead, oundered, made a recovery, fought and then sunk.

The immense joy of Del Piero and Trezeguet, along with Ronaldo’s tears: these are the images which mark the history of Italian Championship number 26. The tricoloured shield remained on the Juve’s jersey for the following season, but it was the only joy in a sad year. Giovanni Agnelli died on 24 January 2003 and the club and its fans were in mourning. In May, the team suffered another setback, losing the Champions League final on penalties in Manchester against Milan.

15 July proved to be an important date for the club: Juventus signed an agreement with the Municipality of Turin for the acquisition of a 99 year lease for the Delle Alpi Stadium, where the new stadium would be built. In the meantime, in August the team played the Italian Super Cup in the USA and got its revenge by beating Milan. However, the celebration was short- lived as the death of President Vittorio Caissotti di Chiusano was announced. Franzo Grande Stevens, deputy chairman of FIAT took his place. Following the Super Cup victory, the remainder of the season was unfulfilling for Juventus, and the club was again in deep mourning the next spring when Umberto Agnelli passed away on 27 May 2004.

The following season Fabio Capello assumed control of the team. New players included the Brazilian Emerson, Fabio Cannavaro and Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Their performance in Europe was less than brilliant, but Juventus was unstoppable in Italy and achieved two consecutive championships, smashing records and leaving opponents trailing.

JUVENTUS HISTORY : 1987 – 1996

Platini leaving his career as footballer in 1987 and becoming a coach, manager and later President of UEFA in 2007.

Platini’s farewell to football coincided with a reformation of the team, seeing Juventus witness a less successful period, despite other victories: in 1990 the Bianconeri won both the UEFA cup and Italian Cup. Dino Zoff was at the helm, who at first was supported by the precious contribution of one of his great friends and former team mates, Gaetano Scirea. But fate brought a tragic end to that solid link: during a trip to Poland to scout Juventus’ future opponents in the Uefa Cup, Gaetano lost his life in a tragic car accident. The date was 3 September 1989 and no Juventus supporter will ever forget it.

 

In 1990 Giampiero Boniperti handed over the presidency to the attorney Vittorio Caissotti di Chiusano. Three years later, Juventus clinched their third UEFA Cup, but had not had a Championship win in a long time. In 1994, the club started a reorganisation process: Chiusano remained as president, but operating positions were given to Roberto Bettega, Antonio Giraudo and Luciano Moggi.

Marcello Lippi was the manager and the team featured many new players: Ferrara in defence, Paulo Sousa and Deschamps in mid eld and up front alongside unrivalled leaders like Gianluca Vialli and Roberto Baggio, was an interesting younger player. He had arrived the year before from Padova, showing a notable technique and strong personality. His name was Alessandro Del Piero. And he would go on to rewrite all of Juventus’ records. First came the Italian Championship, followed by the Italian Cup. There was an ongoing struggle with Parma, who nally managed to wrest the Uefa Cup from Juventus. The year was a triumph, but one that was also marked by tragedy of Andrea Fortunato, who died from an incurable disease on 25 April 1995. The Italian Championship victory allowed Juventus to claim their place in the Champions League the following year. They eliminated Real Madrid in the quarter- finals, and went on to beat Nantes in the semis.

The final was played in Rome against reigning champs Ajax. It was 22 May 1996, it ended 1-1. Then came the penalties: the Bianconeri did not miss one, while Peruzzi saved two. Jugovic approached the penalty spot wearing a smile for the last kick. His smile turned into a cry of joy after a few seconds. Juventus became Champions of Europe.

 

JUVENTUS HISTORY : 1973 – 1987

6

The Boniperti era started with a bang by winning two championships in a row, the 1971/1972 and 1972/1973 seasons.

5

It was the beginning of a triumphant cycle which would bring the Bianconeri nine Italian Championships, their first European victory with the Uefa Cup in 1977 and the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1984.

The success they had long searched for in European competition arrived on the saddest evening in Juventus’ history: on 29 May 1985 in Brussels, the Heysel tragedy took place. The crowd went wild just before the match with Liverpool and 39 innocent victims lost their lives. Football, from that time on, would never be the same again. The match was played all the same in an attempt to restore order and Juventus won the Cup. It was a joyless success, but allowed the Bianconeri to fly to Tokyo in the winter to play the Intercontinental Cup. Argentinos Junior were beaten on penalties and Juventus became World Champions.

Directing the team from the bench was Giovanni Trapattoni, who had arrived at Juventus in 1976 after the Czech Vycpalek and Carlo Parola, who had created an invincible engine under Boniperti’s presidency. First, by focussing on young Italian talents from Zoff to Scirea, from Tardelli to Cabrini, from Causio to Paolo Rossi, from Gentile to Furino, from Anastasi to Bettega. Then, when he was able to sign foreign players in 1980, he was able to count on the contribution of foreign champions. The first was Liam Brady, an Irish midfielder with velvet feet and a smart brain, who dictated the pace of the game and scored valuable goals. His final strike, scored in Catanzaro from the penalty spot gave Juventus their twentieth Italian Championship, and their second star. It was 16 May 1982 and the Bianconeri supporters were jubilant.

Less than two months later, on 11 July, all Italian fans would share their joy, thanks to Juventus: in Madrid, the National team won the World Cup for the third time in its history, with a resemblance to Trapattoni’s side. Zoff, Gentile, Cabrini, Scirea, Tardelli and Rossi were the pillars of the Italian national team who lifted the cup before Italian President Sandro Pertini. Rossi was the tournament’s top scorer, with six goals in seven matches, winning the Golden Ball, the second Italian in history to do so after Rivera. The trophy awarded by France Football was one of the family in Turin, during that period.

After the World Cup season, the number of eligible foreign players on Italian teams increased by two, so the Pole Zibì Boniek and, more importantly, Michel Platini joined the side. The Frenchman turned out to be a true champion. Elegant in his movements, he played with his head held high, placing passes onto his team mate’s feet from 50 metres and scoring many goals. “Le Roi” won top goalscorer and the Golden Ball for three consecutive years and enchanted supporters all over the world. At the triumph in Tokyo, he scored the last penalty, the winning spot kick, after one of the best goals ever seen in football history was disallowed in normal time. Juventus achieved their last Italian Championship of the Boniperti era in that season. Platini went on to play another season before leaving his career as footballer in 1987 and becoming a coach, manager and later President of UEFA in 2007.

JUVENTUS HISTORY : 1947 – 1973

Juventus resumed their success after WWII. In 1947, Giovanni Agnelli, son of Edoardo, who tragically died in a plane crash in 1935, became president.

9

The club’s most heralded champions were now Carlo Parola, Danes John Hansen and Praest and, above all Giampiero Boniperti. Cheered on by crowds of fans, they won the Italian Championship in 1950 and 1952.

In 1953, Giovanni Agnelli resigned as president, which was passed onto his brother Umberto Agnelli two years later.

8

A new triumphant cycle was beginning: with the arrival of Omar Sivori and John Charles, the Bianconeri won the Italian Championship in 1958, allowing them to wear a star on their jerseys for having obtained ten national titles.

In the 60s there were three more successes, the last in 1967 under Vittorio Catella’s presidency. Juventus’ history was to become even more glorious at the dawn of the new decade.

6

Giampiero Boniperti had hung up his boots, but he continued to lead the team: he became the President in July 1971 and there was no stopping Juventus.

The Boniperti era started with a bang by winning two championships in a row, the 1971/1972 and 1972/1973 seasons.

JUVENTUS HISTORY : 1926 – 1947

In 1925/1926 Juventus won their second national championship, following a gripping final with Bologna, beaten only in a play-off and a grand final against Alba Roma.

12

And this was just the beginning: from 1930 to 1935 Juventus was way out in front and five consecutive national league titles arrived in Turin. The stars of the “Golden five-year period” were the manager Carlo Carcano and champions such as Orsi, Caligaris, Monti, Cesarini, Varglien I and II, Bertolini, Ferrari and Borel II. Juventus also gave a determinant contribution to the National Team, who won the World Cup in Rome in 1934. During the 1930’s the team also had their first experience in international football, taking part in the European Cup, the illustrious predecessor of the current Champions League. Luck was not on their side, but they did make four semi-final appearances.

10

Juventus resumed their success after WWII. In 1947, Giovanni Agnelli, son of Edoardo, who tragically died in a plane crash in 1935, became president.

Juventus History : 1897 – 1926

15

A group of friends, united by a passion for football, a special game that had recently been “imported” from England, met on a bench on Corso Re Umberto, one of the major boulevards in the centre of Turin. They had an intriguing idea: to create a sports club just for football. The boys attended Massimo D’Azeglio high school which specialised in Classical studies, they were well-educated and none of them was over age 17. For this reason they chose the name Juventus, which means “youth” in Latin. It was 1 November 1897. They didn’t realise it, but they had just given birth to a legend.

14

And so, almost by chance, Italy’s greatest football team got its start. The Club’s first chairman was Enrico Canfari, its first pitch was in Piazza d’Armi and its first jersey was pink. Juventus made its début, in 1900, in the National Championship wearing the same jersey. Three years later, the Bianconero (black and white jersey) appeared, imported from Nottingham. And five years later, in 1905, the first Italian title arrived, after a difficult three way competition with Genoa and Milanese. The president was the Swiss Alfredo Dick who left the Club shortly afterwards following locker-room arguments and various complaints. He went on to establish Torino and took the best foreign players with him. Juventus witnessed hard times in subsequent years lasting until the beginning of WWI due to being unable to compete with the new football powerhouses of the time, Pro Vercelli and Casale.

13

The Bianconeri made a great comeback after the end of the war: goalkeeper Giacone and fullbacks Novo and Bruna were the first Juventus players to wear the National Team’s jersey. The President was the poet and man of words Corradino Corradini, who also penned the Juventus anthem used until the 60s. 1923 was a special year: Giampiero Combi made his début with the first team, one of the greatest goalkeepers of all times, and even more importantly the Club’s leadership changed hands. On 24 July the Shareholders’ Meeting elected the new president by acclamation: Edoardo Agnelli, the son of the founder of FIAT. The club also had its own pitch now, in Corso Marsiglia. The stands were in masonry and the number of supporters increased day by day. All of the foundations had been laid to progress through the ranks of Italian football and strengthen a team that already boasted players like Combi, Rosetta, Munerati, Bigatto and Grabbi, and its rst team manager, the Hungarian Jeno Karoly, and rst foreign champion, also from Hungary, left-winger Hirzer.

 

In 1925/1926 Juventus won their second national championship, following a gripping final with Bologna, beaten only in a play-off and a grand final against Alba Roma.
