Around 20,000 tickets have been made available to fans of both Inter Milan and Man City for the Champions League final.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who also report that the San Siro could be opened up for fans to watch the final in Istanbul on a big screen.
Inter Milan and Manchester City are in the Champions League final.
Fans of both Inter and City will be well-represented at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul on June 10.
The stadium has a capacity of just under 75,000. According to the Gazzetta, more than half of that amount will be devoted to accommodating fans of both clubs.
UEFA plans to release the same number of around 20,000 tickets exclusively for purchase by Inter and City fans.
The remaining tickets will be put up for general sale.
Inter Milan & Man City To Meet With EUFA
Inter and City executives will meet with UEFA soon to establish further details. It has not yet been decided exactly how the tickets will be sold.
However, according to the Gazzetta, Inter are not inclined towards making tickets available specifically to season ticket holders on a priority. This had been the strategy of Roma when the Giallorossi reached the Europa Conference League final last season.
San Siro Could Be Opened Up
The Gazzetta further report that the Nerazzurri could open up the San Siro during the final.
The demand for Inter fans to watch the final will obviously be far higher than the 20,000 or so tickets at the Ataturk can accommodate.
Accordingly, the club could set up a massive screen at the San Siro and show the final.
