Inter are expecting around 200 thousand spectators for their next three games, SPAL, Roma and Barcelona, due to their strong performances so far this season, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
The report details how, after the Nerazzurri’s win over Slavia Prague in the Champions League earlier this week, the Milanese side are expecting a full stadium for their final Champions League game against Barcelona in December, a game that will be the difference between qualifying for the next round of the competition or dropping down to the Europa League.
For tomorrow’s game against SPAL, the report continues, there are expected to be around 60 thousand spectators, despite the forecast of rain. The game against Roma next week has sold a little less for the moment, but it is close to reaching the same number. The first and second rings are already almost sold out, with the third ring set to be open as well. The target is around 70 thousand fans.
The Champions League clash against Barcelona is expected to be an almost completely full house, the report highlights, with around 73 thousand spectators set to attend. The only reason the figure isn’t higher is because the Blaugrana haven’t sold all of their tickets yet. If these figures are reached it would set a new record in Italy for most revenue earnt through ticket sales.
The Nerazzurri are also set to increase their average attendance this season as well, the report suggests. Last season Inter finished the season with an average of 61,419 spectators, almost seven thousand more than Milan. Considering how the figure has already grown to 64,593 this season, as well as the high numbers projected for the next few games, it appears that Inter will end this calendar year with an even higher average.
