Sunderland To Host Juventus in Friendly

The famed Italian club, newly returned to Serie A,
will visit the Stadium of Light for a pre-season friendly on Saturday, August 4, a week before the Premiership schedule starts. The match is designed to help mark 10 years at the Stadium of Light, a beautiful 49,000-seat UEFA four-star ground that cost only 34 million pounds ($67.7 million US) to build.

Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn told the club's website that he was pleased to welcome Juventus to England:

"Juventus is one of the biggest clubs on the world stage, with countless European successes as well as a superb domestic record.

"There have been some legendary players to have represented the club over the years and it will be an honour to welcome some household names to the Stadium of Light when they come here."
