The 2016–17 season was Juventus Football Club's 119th in existence and tenth consecutive season in the top flight of Italian football. Juventus re-designed their kit with a different take on the trademark white and black stripes in this season.[2] On 26 July 2016, Juventus signing Gonzalo Higuaín became, at the time, the third highest football transfer of all-time and highest ever transfer for an Italian club,[3] when he signed for €90 million from Napoli.[4] On 8 August 2016, Paul Pogba returned to his first club, Manchester United, for an all-time record for highest football transfer fee at €105 million, surpassing the former record holder Gareth Bale.[5]

On 17 May 2017, Juventus won their 12th Coppa Italia title in a 2–0 win over Lazio, becoming the first team to win three consecutive championships.[6] Four days later on 21 May, following a 3–0 win over Crotone, Juventus secured their sixth consecutive Serie A title, establishing an all-time record of successive triumphs in the competition.[7][8] On 3 June 2017, Juventus entered a second Champions League Final in three years, but were defeated 4–1 by defending champions Real Madrid.[9] During a screening of the Champions League Final in Turin, a firecracker caused panic, and a subsequent stampede. One woman died,[10][11] and at least 1,526 people were injured.[12]
