Veneto

The Veneto region has produced some great Italian footballers, Alessandro Del Piero among them, with Fabrizio Toniutti eager to lead his side to a second final tournament success.

In the northeast of Italy, the Veneto region has produced some great Italian footballers, Alessandro Del Piero among them, with their success in the 1999 UEFA Regions' Cup proving the strength of local amateur players. Venice is the most celebrated city in the region, but Verona is its industrial hub, and home to the most successful local clubs: 1985 Serie A champions Hellas-Verona FC and AC Chievo Verona. As they prepare to stage the finals, Veneto can take comfort in their home form, with coach Fabrizio Toniutto noting: "This group is very united and the players are eager to make their mark. We have plenty of quality in our squad and we are confident."

Coach: Fabrizio Toniutti
Experienced youth coach Toniutti took charge in 2012 when Loris Bodo - who oversaw Veneto's 1999 UEFA Regions' Cup success – took charge of Serie D side AC Mezzocorona.
