Thgis shirt was worn by Stefan Schwoch during the Serie A game between Vicenza and Venezia which took place in Vicenza, “Romeo Menti” Stadium, on December 20th 1998. Schwoch swapped his shirt at the end of the game with a Vicenza’s player whom we got the shirt from.

Following his great seasons with Ravenna Calcio when in the first 1995/1996 Serie C1’s season Schwoch hit 21 goals in 33 games, leading the club to promotion, and the following 1996/1997 Serie B’s season when the team finished eighth, thanks to the playmaker Lamberto Zauli and Schwoch’s eight goals in 38 matches, he moved in Summer 1997 on to Venezia, where his 17 goals (in 36 games) helped the team to break into Serie A. Schwoch played for Venezia two seasons, scoring 19 goals in 74 games.
