Founded in 2018, Juventus U23 competes in Serie C, the third level of the Italian football league system. The team plays in the same professional league system as their senior team, rather than a separate league dedicated for youth teams. However, the reserve team cannot play in the same division as their senior team, currently making Juventus U23 ineligible for promotion to the Serie A.

HistoryEdit

Juventus Under-23 was founded on 3 August 2018,[1] following the reintroduction of reserve teams in Italian football after over sixty years, and was officially admitted to the Serie C championship.[2] On 21 August, Luca Zanimacchia became the first scorer of the team's history after scoring the only goal in a 1–0 win over Cuneo in the first round of the Coppa Italia Serie C.[3]
