In the summer of 2011, Juventus FC was on the edge of an incredible rebirth. During the 2011-2012 season, the Old Lady of Turin would go on undefeated and win its first Scudetto in six years. Juventus fans around the world rejoiced and eagerly watched together as the Bianconeri made history.
Thousands of miles from Turin, several Southern Californian Juventus supporters were not always able to find fellow fans in their area to cheer on the team. In Summer of 2011, a group of dedicated juventini decided to change this and formed a simple Facebook page to organize game viewings in local bars and hangout spots. In an LA bar called Fox & Hounds, this small group of supporters became the beginning of JuveSoCal. From Orange County, Los Angeles, San Diego, fans have come together to celebrate and cheer for the success of Juventus. Supporters around the world who visit beautiful Southern California have and continue to engage with us so they never miss anything Juventus-related while they are away from home.
As the years have gone by, our small group has welcomed hundreds of fans to join us for match day meetups, concerts, dinners, and special events. In previous years, JuveSoCal has been part of JuvePodcast, the popular English-speaking Juventus podcast, attended the Juve Story Movie Premiere in Los Angeles, participated in a local viewing party of the 2017 Champions League Final with a record of over 400 Juventus fans in attendance and came to the Juventus Trophy tour with our sister group Juventus Club of Silicon Valley. Most recently, JuveSoCal hosted a viewing party at the No.10 restaurant, owned by none other than Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero.
JuveSoCal became an officially recognized fan club by Juventus FC in 2018. We are thrilled for our group to continue to grow and to bring in more members. With official recognition, JuveSoCal is excited to help promote the Juventus brand by working closely with the Del Piero and Juventus Youth Academy, along with participating and hosting any Juventus-related events. Please feel free to explore our website and social media platforms to learn more about what we have done, what we are doing now, and what we hope to do.
Contact us with any questions about all things related to JuveSoCal! We look forward to growing and celebrating with you.
Here is to a great future of many more trophies, victories, friendships, and good times!
Fino Alla Fine,
