WTF is Football Italia is on claiming it will be Gigi's 902nd Juve appearance :D
Buffon to match Maldini record

By Football Italia staff

Gianluigi Buffon is expected to make his 902nd Juventus appearance today, allowing him to equal Paolo Maldini’s record.
The goalkeeper returned to Juventus after a season at Paris Saint-Germain and is likely to start in today’s Serie A encounter with Hellas Verona at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT).
This is set to be his 902nd match for Juventus in all competition.
It allows Buffon to equal the record set by Milan legend Paolo Maldini for most games in a single club jersey.
The Italy international will also be making his 641st Serie A appearance, again closing on Paolo’s record of 647.

Buffon sets Serie A record
By Football Italia staff

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon makes history today with his 903rd Serie A appearance, beating the all-time record of 902 set by Paolo Maldini.
He is in the starting XI for Juve against SPAL in Turin today, kicking off at 14.00 UK time (13.00 GMT).
You can follow all the action as it happens from today’s three Serie A games on the LIVEBLOG.
The 41-year-old would’ve achieved this milestone earlier had he not spent last season in Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain.
Buffon made his Serie A debut for Parma in a 0-0 draw with Milan at the Stadio Tardini on November 19, 1995.
He also played for the 2006-07 campaign in Serie B, sticking with Juventus following the Calciopoli scandal just months after winning the World Cup for Italy.
Of the 903 Serie A games, 474 were with Juventus and 168 while wearing the Parma shirt.
This will be Buffon’s 658th competitive appearance in a Juve jersey.

So he is now the Italian with the most club appearances, but not the most Serie A appearances ( which is held by Maldini? ).

So is this referring to appearances across any league? Or simply total official club games regardless of the competition?

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon makes history today with his 903rd club football appearance, beating the all-time record of 902 set by Paolo Maldini.

The 41-year-old achieved this milestone playing for Parma, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

This will be Buffon’s 658th competitive appearance in a Juve jersey, adding to 220 for Parma and 25 at PSG.



So basically, yes, total official club games played across any competition.
