MILAN - Juventus will face
English third tier team Notts County in a friendly to inaugurate
their new stadium next month, the Serie A side said in a

Juventus sold naming rights for the stadium to Sportfive,
who paid Juve money to help build the arena, but so far the

Stadio Olimpico in Rome hold around double that but are only
