Juve stadium opens with Notts County

Juventus will play Notts County, the team that gave them their club colours, in the inauguration ceremony for their new stadium.

The Bianconeri become the first club in Italy to own their arena when the Nuovo Stadio makes its debut on September 8.

It was built on the site of the old Stadio Delle Alpi and is a state of the art venue for international football, which includes shops and conference facilities.

Juventus have announced they will include a tribute to Notts County in the inauguration ceremony.

Juve took the club colours from the Nottingham side in 1903 and will face Notts County in a special friendly on September 8.

“It is the right tribute to these colours in a day when the entire inauguration ceremony will celebrate 114 years of the club's history,” read the Juventus website.

However, details of the day's events are being kept under wraps until a few hours before the opening.
