Sassuolo Heading To Europe Next Season

sassuloJuventus’ late 1-0 win over AC Milan in the Coppa Italia at the Stadio Olimpico had far-reaching implications across Italy, as it sealed Sassuolo‘s first-ever qualification to the Europa League.

When the final whistle rang out in the capital at 11.19pm, a growing pocket of Neroverdi fans started their own party in Sassuolo, having watched the action unfold on a giant screen in the town square.

Over 1,000 people had gathered in the Piazza Garibaldi, becoming temporary Bianconeri fans as their own side’s sixth-place finish, their best-ever since being founded in 1922, earned them a spot amongst Europe’s second-most elite competition.

The club’s official Twitter joined in on the celebrations, reaping the rewards of a tough campaign that boiled down to a tense night in Rome that was ultimately out of their hands.

“Europa what?! EUROPA LEAGUE! A historic achievement!” read an excitable message on the Neroverdi’s social media account.

So many of their fans will have witnessed a club rise up from Serie C2, under the tutelage of owner Giorgio Squinzi, in just 10 years, marking the next chapter in the incredible rise of Sassuolo.
