Gazzetta – Juventus rejoins the ECA: Elkann’s ‘U-Turn’ marks a shift from Agnelli era


According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus’ return to the European Club Association (ECA) comes after a series of productive meetings and positive contacts between John Elkann, CEO of Exor, and his trusted associate, Maurizio Scanavino.

The newspaper outline how this move signifies a new direction for the club, focusing on maximum dialogue and good relationships with Italian and European football institutions. It represents a significant ‘U-turn’ from the last years under Andrea Agnelli, who was instrumental in founding and promoting the Super League—a venture from which Juventus has now withdrawn, leaving Barcelona and Real Madrid behind.

Juventus’ departure from the potential new competition, alongside thawing relations with UEFA, will be crucial in finalizing their return to the ECA, which could officially take place on July 1st.
