Nickelodeon Italy Debuts 'Team Jay', New Animated Series Based on Juventus F.C. Mascot

Nickelodeon Italy (Italia) gave viewers a sneak-peek of Team Jay, a brand-new CG-animated series following the adventures of Jay, the proud, mythical and funny zebra with a pattern of black, white and gold and the official team mascot of Juventus F.C.! Joining Jay on his adventures are Matteo, who has a solution for every problem that arises, and Cami, an excellent soccer player.


Nickelodeon Italia aired the first episode of Team Jay on Wednesday 26th June 2019 at 20:50, following an encore of Nickelodeon's SlimeFest 2019 highlights special. Following the sneak-peek, the series is expected to fully premiere in September 2019.

Nickelodeon also treated attendees to Nickelodeon SlimeFest 2019 at Mirabilandia on Saturday 15th June 2019 to a super preview of the show.


Team Jay is produced by Sunrise Productions (Munki and Trunk, Jungle Beat, The Explorers), who created the mascot for Juventus Football Club in 2015. Jay taps into the deep history of Italy’s oldest club, while still being fresh and exciting to Juventus’s youngest supporters. The Cape Town, South Africa-based animation studio has previously produced one-off spots inspired by the character.

Dan Balaam, a Freelance Writer & Creative, serves as a writer on the series.

Team Jay is the latest collaboration between Nickelodeon Italia and Juventus F.C., following the launch of a capsule collection inspired by SpongeBob SquarePants and the football team in 2018.
