Italian Media Detail Importance Of Sold Out San Siro To Inter Milan
The fact that the San Siro has been constantly packed for Inter’s home matches this season has been important not just to the team on the pitch, but also in terms of the financially beleaguered club behind the scenes.
This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who note that with with an average attendance of over 70,000 at the San Siro for Nerazzurri matches, the earnings from gate receipts should exceed €60 million this season.
Regardless of the team’s up-and-down form this campaign, the San Siro has always seemed to have a sold-out crowd or something close to it.
Naturally, this is a big factor that helps out the team on the pitch, who have been able to count on the support of the fans and an intense atmosphere when they play at home.
However, that is not all, as the gate receipts have also been higher than ever, no small matter considering the financial problems that Inter have been dealing with.
According to the Corriere, Inter can expect at least €60 million in stadium revenues at the end of the season, whilst that number could get even higher depending on how far the team go in the Champions League.
