Inter Milan’s clash with Juventus tomorrow is set to be one of the biggest-earners from gate receipts in Serie A history.
Today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInter1908, report that the Derby d’Italia will likely become the third-highest-earning match of all time in the Italian top flight.
It is not exactly hard to see why the anticipation is high for the match between Inter and Juventus tomorrow evening.
That match will see first and second in the Serie A table square off.
Inter and Juventus, it appears, are the two main contenders for the Serie A title. Only AC Milan look to be in range to catch the pair at the top realistically.
The Nerazzurri are one point clear at the top of the Serie A table. They do also have a game in hand.
Inter Vs Juventus Clash At San Siro Could Smash San Siro Gate Receipt Records
So every ticket available has already sold out for that Derby d’Italia match, well over a week before the date of the match itself.
And moreover, the Gazzetta notes, the two teams could very well be in range of the record for gate receipt earnings in Serie A.
At the moment, the record is for the match between Inter and Juventus in October of 2019.
That match was was just a few months before the pandemic lockdown.
That match brought in €6.6 million in gate receipt earnings.
The second-highest gate receipt earning in Serie A history came during the current season. The Milan derby between Inter and AC Milan in September brought in €6.2 million.
After that in third and fourth are two other Milan derbies at the San Siro – in March of 2019, and February of 2023.
The Gazzetta forecast that the upcoming Derby d’Italia will bring in over €6 million.
Therefore, it should get a “podium finish” so to speak, even if the amount doesn’t reach the €6.6 million for the meeting between Inter and Juventus more than four years ago.
