Around 40,000 seats will be opened up at the San Siro to view the Champions League final between Inter Milan and Man City later this month.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.
The Nerazzurri have been given only around 20,000 tickets to sell exclusively to their fans to the final itself.
Obviously demand is much higher than that.
One live experience for the final will see fans let into the San Siro. Whilst they will not be able to actually watch the action live on the pitch, it will enable the fans to gather and watch the match together in the familiar surroundings of the San Siro.
Around 40,000 Seats To Be Opened Up To View Inter Milan Vs Man City UCL Final Clash
According to the Gazzetta, the Nerazzurri have not yet secured full approval to open up the stadium.
However, there is every chance that they will.
Then, the question will be how to manage the event. The Gazzetta notes that the screening will follow a similar procedure to concerts at the San Siro.
This will see a large screen set up in the Orange Sector of the stadium.
All three tiers of the Red Sector will be open. The lateral parts of the Blue and Green Sectors could be as well.
Then, around 40,000 fans will be allowed in. They will be seated both in the stands and also on the football pitch.
Tickets for the event are set to cost around €10-25. The club’s priority is to make the tickets accessible in terms of cost.
According to the Gazzetta, this number has to do with the management and safety of the event. This concerns both inside the stadium itself as well as the surrounding area.
