Founded in 1907, Venezia FC is a historic Italian football Club based in of one of the world's most iconic cities.

Nicknamed the "Arancio-nero-verdi", Venezia FC is led by a passionate Ownership group and a dedicated Leadership team, who share a love for the Club and City alike.

Since taking charge of the Club in early 2020, the Club's management has put in place a strategy that is already delivering, bringing financial stability and continuity in the Club's governance.

Central to this strategy, and the investment for the next phase of growth, is the development of a state-of-the-art training center at Taliercio. The center will bring together the entire Venezia FC family - from the Men's and Women's First Team to the Academy, as well as its management and staff.

 

Work has already begun on the development of the new training center, with the Ownership providing all of the funding until such time that they believed the Club has reached financial stability.

As the Club moves into a new phase focused on the long-term future, the Ownership now invites Venezia FC's supporters, its local and global community, and all investors, to invest in the Venezia FC Bond alongside the Club.

Funds raised from the Venezia FC Bond will directly finance the construction of the new training center at Taliercio. The building will include additional training pitches, locker rooms, gym, medical and rehabilitation facilities, and the new Club headquarters.
