The new Juventus academy is set to be the first in the Italian capital to offer its graduates a professional contract.
The club will launch the academy’s first class of students in the coming weeks, following a year-long recruitment drive which saw a record 1,000 applicants apply.
It’s an ambitious plan, one which has taken the Italian government by surprise.
The aim of the programme is to provide young players with the right training and exposure to top-level footballing academies in the world.
In the process, the young men will also gain valuable exposure to the game’s most prestigious clubs, and will become leaders in the Juventus brand.
“This initiative is not just about Juventus,” says Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta.
The academy has already established a foundation, but now it will be up to the new players to work hard, and with great motivation, to achieve their dreams.””
And it’s about this very important initiative which is taking place in the city, in the academy and with the players who will follow.

The new academy is a unique opportunity for the young players of the club to gain exposure to a new environment and the most elite teams in Europe.
The new Juventus Academy will be the only one in the country to offer a full-time scholarship to the graduates.
In order to qualify for the scholarship, the candidates must meet the following requirements:They must be a full professional footballer who has at least one international cap, and who has graduated from the Juventus youth academy.
Their first professional cap is likely to be from Serie B, or a similar level of competition.
They must also have a B+ average for their previous four years of professional football.
The graduates will then be able to move to a full scholarship, where they will learn the principles of professional development and how to apply the latest footballing concepts.
The students will also get an opportunity to play in the first-team squad, a position that is currently restricted to the academy graduates.
“Juventus is committed to ensuring that the academy is the most prestigious in the region,” said Marotta in a statement.

Juventus have already been able to secure a number of players for the academy, with the club signing a number the likes of Alessandro Florenzi and Gianluigi Buffon.
The news comes just weeks after Juventus appointed the former Juventus midfielder and former World Cup winner, Giorgio Chiellini, as the club’s new head of youth development.
