The club was founded as the sport- club in the late 1897 by a certain student who came from Massimo School in Turin where it was then later named Juventus football club.

Used to wear pink and black kit. This club first won the championship league in the year 1905 playing on their home ground. By then, they had changed to black and white kit that they were inspired by the inland club from Notts county. In 1906, team was a split on the fact that they were to be moved from Turin. Alfred Dick who was then president was not pleased with this where some players were left to form Torinese (Torino Fc). Juventus did spend a lot to rebuild after this split and survived the so called world war one.

LEAGUE DOMINANCE

The owner Edoardo gained control of this club in 1923 and then built a new stadium. Joined the second championship in 1925-1926 after beating Roma. Had decentralized fan base that led to a win of 5 consecutive Italian league championship. After moving to stadio comunale they were unable to get dominance of the championship and revived after the Second World War. Came to a win in the year 1966-1967. They won various cups in 1972 and 1972 with best players like Roberto and Franco. With Giovanni, the club was led to major European title win (UEFA CUP) in 1977 and dominated in early 1980s.

This makes up to 20 titles to this far and were the given an opportunity to add a star on their shirt where it was the first Italian to make such achievement. Their player Paolo Rossi was named the player of the year in European following his help in the 1982 world cup. There are so many awards that the players of Juventus won from the European stage point. In 2010, the club challenged to strip scudetti from the year 2005 to 2006 where the relegation later was discovered had no merit.
