Juventus promise excitement, surprises for gala stadium opening

Juventus are staging a gala opening for their new stadium.

It will be inaugurated with a game against Notts County, the club that first gave them their black and white stripes, on Thursday evening.

"It will be spectacular," assured K-events director Marco Balich. "We prepared a splendid choreography created by the Bianconeri fans. There will be space for heroes of the past, trophies and surprise guests.

"Tradition, innovation and style. These are the key words for the new Juventus home."

Stadium director Francesco Gianello also revealed what stands the Juventus Stadium apart from other Serie A venues.

"The stands are right next to the pitch and all equidistant, so we eliminated the concept of the curva, as those in Tribuna Nord will be as close to the field as those in Tribuna Ovest.

"There is safety for families and a warm welcome for fans with kitchens that can provide 4,000 meals on match days. The Juventus Museum will be finished later on, while from October there are guided tours of the stadium and locker rooms for supporters."
