- The Jeep® summer tour takes the Italian Champions to Australia and Hong Kong.
- Accompanying them will be the flagship Jeep Grand Cherokee, the iconic Jeep Wrangler and the exclusive Renegade with black and white stripes in honour of the Juventus club colours.
Johannesburg - The Italian champions are flying to Melbourne for the first stage of their summer tour in Australia and Hong Kong. By their side is the Jeep® brand, Official Juventus Sponsor for the last four seasons: a successful union between two brands with a glorious history. No other soccer club has won more titles in Italy than Juventus, and Jeep is the automotive brand that can boast its role as pioneer in the SUV market for 75 years.
The Juventus champions will be in Melbourne until July 28 with a full program of activities, including an international competition and signing autographs for fans. Today, they will play with the athletes of Richmond FC, the number three club of the Australian Football League Team (AFL), also sponsored by the Jeep brand. Then on July 23 and 26, they will play two friendly matches with Melbourne Victory and Tottenham, respectively, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
The summer tour will proceed to China, where on July 30 the Italian champions will play a friendly match with South China at the Hong Kong stadium.
During the various events of the summer tour, the Italian champions will be accompanied by the top of the Jeep range Grand Cherokee, the most awarded SUV ever, and Jeep Wrangler, the iconic Jeep that embodies the claim "Go anywhere, do anything", both distinguished by the total White or total Black livery in tribute to the Juventus club colors. By their side is the Renegade, the multi-award winning compact SUV designed for off-road excitement, sporting an exclusive black and white striped livery.
Like Juventus, the Jeep brand is also enjoying a fantastic season this year by confirming its successful trend once again in 2106. In June, it recorded its 32nd consecutive month of growth and its best quarter ever in Europe.
