Venezia FC are pleased to announce Ivan Javorčić as first team manager. Javorčić, 43, has signed a three-year contract through the 2024/25 season.
In 2021/22, Javorčić led Südtirol to their first-ever promotion to Serie B in his first season with the club, finishing top of the table in Serie C Girone A with 27 wins, nine draws, two losses, and a remarkable nine goals conceded in 38 matches — the best defensive record of any team in a professional league in Europe last season.
Venezia FC president Duncan Niederauer:
“We are very pleased to have Ivan joining us as our next coach. He has experience in Italian football and a track record of success. More importantly, Ivan has the leadership qualities we are looking for in a coach. He has a strategic mindset, and he prepares thoroughly for every aspect of the role. Ivan has an open mind to new ideas, he expects a lot from his players, and his communication style is completely transparent. He is the right man for the job at this moment, and we look forward to partnering with him as we take Venezia FC forward.”
