Juventus Stadium, commercially known as the Allianz Stadium since July 2017, sometimes simply known in Italy as the Stadium, is an all-seater football stadium in the Vallette borough of Turin, Italy, and the home of Serie A club Juventus Football Club.
The stadium was built on the site of Juventus' and Torino's former home, the Stadio delle Alpi, and is one of only three club-owned football stadiums in Serie A, alongside Sassuolo's Mapei Stadium and Udinese's Stadio Friuli. It was opened at the start of the 2011–12 season and has a capacity of just over 41,000 spectators. The stands are just 7.5 metres from the pitch, a major improvement from the Stadio delle Alpi.Juventus played the first match against the world's oldest professional football club Notts County on 8 September 2011 in a friendly which ended 1–1. Veteran striker Luca Toni found the net after Fabio Quagliarella failed to convert a penalty. The first official competitive match was Juventus–Parma, played on 11 September 2011, where Stephan Lichtsteiner scored the stadium's first goal in the 16th minute. Juventus only lost three matches of their first 100 Italian top-flight league matches at the Juventus Stadium.
