Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport report on the expected turnout crowdwise in the derby scheduled on Sunday October 21st between Inter and Milan at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milano’s San Siro district.
According to the report, “With just under two weeks to go, the ticket sales have been impressive. As of yesterday, it has become no longer possible to buy tickets in the second tier and today even the few remaining second tier ones in the orange sector will be sold out. Only the seats in the most expensive areas and those in the third blue tier reserved for AC Milan supporters remain.”
Over 77 thousand people will attend the game, just like in the Champions League match against Barcelona scheduled for November 6th. Against the Catalans, an absolute record in the history of the Nerazzurri club is expected.
According to the Corriere: “Last October Inter vs Milan earned nearly €5 million euros for the Nerazzurri in ticket sales, and even though the number of season ticket holders this year is higher at almost 40,000, it is possible that the money earned from this game will be even greater. Inter have the highest number of season ticket holders along with the highest attendance in the Serie A this season, with an average of 58,846 attendees over the first 6 official games at home.”
