Inter’s players will receive a hero’s welcome from their supporters when the Serie A champions return to San Siro on Saturday.
The Nerazzurri will play their first game since securing the scudetto against Sampdoria at 18:00 CET, and responsible celebrations are in order.
Inter’s Curva Nord announced today they were planning a ‘wall of colour’ to welcome the Inter players outside the stadium.
“For our next match against Sampdoria, we want to celebrate the team by accompanying them to the entrance of the stadium,” a statement on the group’s Facebook page read.
“It will be a wall of colour and passion that takes your breath away.
“Our appeal to join goes out to all Interisti with no exclusions, and anyone who doesn’t find a space under the Curva can fan out along Via Caprilli where the team will travel past.
“The enthusiasm of the Nerazzurri fans has become an overwhelming and unstoppable stream (after securing the Serie A title), just as it should be.
“We’re in the middle of a dream which is bursting into life.”
Inter have won their first league title for 11 years but the club have already moved attention onto next season, with CEO Beppe Marotta admitting they would love to win a second star (for a 20th scudetto).
The Curva Nord were very much in approval of those comments, adding: “Inter are finally back at the top of Italian football and deservedly so, and this mentality is the right one.
“The club have immediately raised the bar by talking clearly about the next step in the immediate future, the second star.”
Having explained the plan for Saturday’s festivities, Inter’s supporters group also reminded everyone to act responsibly and avoid breaking any COVID-19 guidelines in force.
“We want lots of enthusiasm but also discipline and order,” they warned.
“It’s essential people are aware of this, because we don’t want any avoidable lapses in concentration to cause us problems ahead of the real party we’re organising for the final game of the season, against Udinese on May 23.
“Social distancing and masks are key to what we’re organising on Saturday.
The statement also urged fans to avoid recording footage on their phones and enjoy the occasion, concluding: “We’ll be going to carry out a sacred ritual which will remain indelibly imprinted on your memory.
“Let’s try to be worthy of such an occasion, all of us.”
