    How come Juve attendance is usually 30-40k? I would think it could/should be near 50-60k.

    Is Torino more popular in Turin?

    This is a subject that sort of goes around and around without any real answer.

    The most common reasons given - tickets are too expensive, people from Torino are spoiled and only go to big matches (although yesterday's game contradicts that argument), many of Juve's fans aren't from Torino...in the end I'm not sure that anyone knows.

    This page has a pretty comprehensive look at the issue...http://members.tripod.com/Bianconeri/fans2.html.

    People also need to remember that Turin's population is only 400,000 or so. Compared to Milan and Rome it's not all that big. Teams like Milan, Inter, Roma and Lazio pull in the same numbers, or often times only 10k more a match.

    Aren't Juve redoing the Delle Alpi reducing the capacity from 71,000+ to around 40,000+. This must be being done to improve atmosphere.

    35000-40000 is just too less for a club of Juve's stature... 50,000 would be good

    The track needs to go soon. That itself should solve half the problems.

    i wish they could just relocate to a different city :(
    or build a completely new stadium in the heart of Turin.

    Its a shame to see so many empty seats every single time :(

    1 reason: the stadium is a dump

    good thing they are going to make a new one with seats close to the action.

    Juventus is your favorite team. Why wish for something like that?

    Some yers ago someone said there was the possibility to put a new Juventus stadium in Monza, a city near Milan where there is also the F1 grand Prix

    It could have been fantastic (finally i could have gone to see Juventus at the stadium) but unfortunately...

    I think in a city like Milan or near Milan the affluence at the stadium would be higher...

    The "Delle Alpi" is a great looking stadium, but it's absolutely awful for soccer games. The stands are way too far from the pitch and the first rows are too low to see anything. The higher stands (3° livello) are too far away, and the best solution is the middle stands (2° livello).

    Nothing comparable to San Siro of Milan, anyway, which is a stadium just perfect for football. Almost vertical stands and shaped as a square: everyone can enjoy the game in its whole without losing details of players.

    And I agree with Del.Car: when Juve played in UEFA cup in Milan as "home stadium" (i think it was in 1995), San Siro was full and tickets were wiped out in a second.. I couldn't get any in spite I was in front of the ticket office since 6 AM.

    actually Torino is the 4th largest italian city,with over 1.000.000 inhabitants. True that the top 3 (Rome,Milan and Naples) are at least twice that big
