Strange to think they redeveloped their new ground to be a fraction of the size of the old one and that Juve play in a ground 20% smaller than ours.
Is Italian football really on it's arse at the mo? I know theyve lost a champ Lgue place to the bundesliga.
Well the new stadium (smaller) sits on top of where the Stadio delle Alpi stood. It's not really convenient to get to from Torino. And that's why the supporters hated the Stadio delle Alpi in the first place.
While their new stadium was being built, Juve shared the Stadio Olympico with Torino; this stadium is small but located in the city itself. So instead of complaining about distance, everyone complained about a lack of seating.
Anyway, the new stadium is smaller than the old Stadio delle Alpi, but much bigger than their temporary home at the Stadio Olympico. And it's supposed to have lots of luxury suites to generate revenue and be more profitable than the old stadium. In any case, it'll still be a pain to get to if I ever get to visit again...
