Juventus Football Club (from the Latin: iuventūs, “youth”), better known as Juventus, is an Italian football club based in the city of Turin.
Founded in 1897 by a group of local high school students, Juve, as it is colloquially abbreviated, is the second most senior professional football club among those still active in the country, after Genoa (1893); he is the most titled and with the greatest FIGC sporting tradition as well as one of the most noble in the world with 69 official trophies won during his militancy at the top of the national sports pyramid, including the record of 36 Italian champion titles and 11 in UEFA competitions. He participates in Serie A, the top Italian league, in which he has taken part permanently since his debut in 1900, except for the 2006-2007 season. After making his debut in the rosanero uniform, at the beginning of the twentieth century he adopted today’s black and white game outfit.
The bond with the Agnelli family, which has lasted almost uninterruptedly since 1923, is the first and longest lasting business-sports partnership in Italy; through a peculiar management model established in the meantime, the Bianconeri became one of the first Italian sports clubs to achieve an ante litteram professional status, establishing itself nationally from the following decade and internationally from the mid-1970s. In the following decade it became the first club to have won all three major European competitions: the UEFA Cup (1976-1977, the first South European team to do so), the Cup Winners’ Cup (1983-1984) and the European Cup (1984-1985); with triumphs in the 1984 UEFA Super Cup and the 1985 Intercontinental Cup he also became the first and still the only one in the world to have won all the official men’s trophies of his own confederation, a record further improved with the success in the 1999 Intertoto Cup.
