Juventus Logo & History
Juventus were founded in 1897 by students in Turin. They are nicknamed ‘Vecchia Signora’, which translates into English as ‘The Old Lady’.
The club controversially changed their logo in 2017. Previously the Juventus badge featured black and white stripes, along with a charging bull, which is a symbol of Turin.
Since 1903, Juventus kits have featured black and white shirts, along with shorts that are generally white, but are occasionally black. Previously the Juventus jersey was pink, but after the shorts faded, the club put out a request for a new kit and Notts County from England, sent them black and white shirts.
The Juventus away kit varies from season to season. On occasion they have gone back to their roots and worn pink.

Home Juventus fixtures are played at the Juventus Stadium. It’s often known as simply ‘the stadium’ amongst fans, which is ‘Lo Stadium’ in Italian.
Completed in 2011, the ground holds 41,507 spectators for a Juventus match. It is a relatively modest capacity compared to other big European clubs, with Juventus having previously played at the larger Stadio Olimpico di Torino and the Stadio delle Alpi.
As the most successful club in Italy and a perennial contender on the European stage, Juventus have built up a number of fierce rivalries over the years. In this section we’re going to take a look at some of the Old Lady’s biggest rivals, from both within Italy and across Europe.
Juventus vs Inter Milan
The biggest fixture in Italian football is Inter vs Juventus. Known as the Derby d’Italia, it is the equivalent of El Clasico in Spain.
With the clubs hailing from the two biggest cities in Northern Italy and having fans across the country, including in each other’s regions, this is both a bitter local rivalry and one formed from the two teams competing for honours. Here is the record of Juventus results against Inter Milan as it stands.

Juventus vs Napoli
The history of the Napoli vs Juventus rivalry is based on the regional rivalry between Northern Italy and Southern Italy, where Napoli are located. This rivalry started to intensify in the 1980s, when Napoli became title contenders.
Juve finished just six points ahead of third placed Napoli when then won Serie A in 1985-86, with Napoli bouncing back by narrowly pipping Juventus to the title the following season, inspired by the brilliant Diego Maradona. The rivalry has built up again over the last decade, with Napoli regularly competing at the top of Serie A.
Juventus vs Torino
The local rivals of Juventus are Torino. Both teams are located in Turin and compete in a fixture known as the Derby della Mole, which refers to the Mole Antonelliana, which is a major landmark within the city.
Juventus represent both the establishment in both football and economic terms, while Torino are the side of the proletariat, with their fanbase mainly being local. It’s a derby similar to Barcelona’s with Espanyol, where one side is much more successful than their underdog rivals.

Fiorentina vs Juventus
Another big fixture on the calendar is Juventus vs Fiorentina. This is a rivalry that has roots in the 1981-82 season, when the two clubs competed for the title. Juventus won the championship on the final day, with accusations of theft coming from Fiorentina, amidst some questionable refereeing decisions in their respective matches.
There were more accusations of theft when Juventus beat Fiorentina in the 1989-90 UEFA Cup final. Juventus have also poached important players from Fiorentina, such as Roberto Baggio and more recently Dusan Vlahovic, adding to the rivalry.
AC Milan vs Juventus
Though not as fierce a rivalry as exists with Milan’s city rivals Inter, Juventus and AC Milan is still an important derby in Italy. In fact, it’s the most played derby in the history of Italian football.
With both clubs regularly competing for trophies with one another, along with the rivalry between the two cities, Juventus and AC Milan have long been enemies. Here is the full history of their head-to-head encounters.
|Number of Juventus v Milan Matches||Juventus Wins||AC Milan Wins||Draws|
Roma vs Juventus
Like the antagonism with Fiorentina, the Juventus vs Roma rivalry is very much based on a battle for trophies in the eighties. In the 1980-81 season the clubs fought for the title, with Roma controversially having a goal disallowed for offside against the Old Lady, in a match towards the end of the season.
Then in 1982-83, a match hosted by Roma saw Juventus score a goal that looked offside, to claim a 2-1 win. Amidst plenty of complaints from the capital, the Juventus president Giampiero Boniperti sent his counterpart at Roma ruler, so that he could measure future offside decisions.
Juventus vs Lazio
The other major club from Rome are Lazio, who are the sixth most supported club in Italy. Their ultras are famed for their ferocity, which means that there are tense atmospheres at games against their rivals, which include Juventus.
Lazio were perhaps at their best during the late nineties and early 2000s. During this time they won several trophies and competed with Juve, amongst others.
Barcelona vs Juventus
When you’re in Europe as often as Juventus, it’s inevitable that rivalries will develop with teams that they happen to face frequently. Once such example is Juventus vs Barcelona. One of the top La Liga teams, Barca are big boys both in Spain and beyond.
Catalan club FC Barcelona beat Juventus 3-1 the 2014-15 Champions League final. In 2016-17, Juve were able to exact some revenge when they knocked Barca out in the quarter-finals. Since then the clubs have twice been drawn together in the group stage.
Juventus vs Villarreal
Juve will be looking to take some similar revenge on Villarreal one day. The Old Lady was drawn against the Spanish club in the last-16 of the Champions League in 2021-22 and were expected to progress.
Instead, Villarreal pulled off a shock with a 3-0 win in Turin, before drawing 1-1 at home in the second-leg. Villarreal vs Juventus is one to look out for in the future.
Chelsea vs Juventus
Another side that Juventus faced in the 2021-22 Champions League were Chelsea, a top English club. The Londoners thrashed Juve 4-0 at home, with the reverse fixture seeing a 1-0 win for the Old Lady.
It was the second time that the clubs have met in the group stage, with the first instance coming in 2012-13. Juventus vs Chelsea has only once been played in the knockout stages, with Chelsea winning 3-2 on aggregate in the last-16 in 2008-09.
