Stadio delle Alpi

Stadio delle Alpi

Stadio delle Alpi, means "Stadium of the Alps". It was built ahead of the 1990 World Cup in Turin, Italy, and was the home ground for both Juventus and Torino from 1990 to 2006. Because of poor visibility leading to low attendances and subsequent financial issues the stadium closed and was demolished in 2009.

FIFA used the Stadio delle Alpi to host six of its World Cup 1990 matches. Three of these fixtures were Group C games, including Brazil's 1 - 0 win over Scotland, a Round of 16 tie and the memorable semi-final defeat of England by West Germany.
