One of the most advanced and technological systems in the world, one of the major tourist attractions and architectural symbol of contemporary Turin, the Allianz Stadium falls into the UEFA category 4 and is the first Italian football structure without architectural barriers.
It’s open environment and multifunctiona design is not only a space in which to watch the football show, but also as a place for meeting and entertainment, to be experienced seven days a week. A real black and white jewel.
On 8 September 2011, with a spectacular inauguration ceremony and the cutting of the ribbon by President Andrea Agnelli, Juventus presented its new stadium to the world. This was the moment in which all the efforts produced for over a decade materialized.
In the late 90s and early 2000s, the idea of equipping the club with a modern and functional system took shape. It was an idea exclusively dedicated to football and to those who experience this sport in all its many aspects: by the fans, who thanks to the new structure will experience the thrill of being practically on the field; to families who will have a peaceful and safe environment with dedicated services for the little ones; and those who want to combine the pleasure of the game with business opportunities.
The stages that marked the construction of the new stadium are manifold: in 2003 Juventus signed the deed of surface transfer with the Municipality of Turin, which ended with an addendum in May 2009. In these years the project developed, and it began to take shape in July 2009, when, after the site was handed over to the group of companies in charge, work began.
They concluded two years later in July 2011. During the summer, the tests were carried out and on 3 September of the same year, the structure gained accessibility. Five days later, Juventus and its fans discovered their new home.
The structure was designed to initially have 41 147 seats, of which 3 600 Premium seats were implemented over the years. In summer of 2013, two other Premium sectors were created, the “Legends Club”, with a capacity of 328 seats and three years later, further work took place in the T100 and Tribuna Nord areas, which brought the total capacity to 41 507 seats.
In any sector, the view of the field is perfect: no barrier divides the fans from the pitch, whose minimum distance from the stands is just 7.5 meters.
Inaugurated on 8 September 2011, beyond being the most modern and functional ground in Italy, Allianz Stadium is also the only one owned by a club.
It is located on the site of the old Delle Alpi, constructed for the 1990 World Cup and subsequently demolished to create space for the new structure. Allianz Stadium has 41,000 seats, 3,600 of which are Premium, and all offer an unprecedented view of the pitch.
There are no obstructions separating the fans from the field of play (just 7.5 metres from the first row of seats) and 16 suspended walkways were constructed for entering the stands.
As well as celebrating the spectacle of football, the innovative Bianconeri stadium introduces a new concept in Italy: a ground that doesn’t just come alive on matchday but remains so throughout the week.
An agora; open, spacious and rich in services including bars, restaurants, shops and a crèche. The Juventus Museum was later introduced on the east side, and the club headquarters, a series of Juventus Soccer Schools pitches and green spaces will be constructed in a later phase of the project.
