Serie A season tickets up

Over 30,000 more season tickets have been sold across Serie A this season, with Milan up by 14,000.

According to today’s Gazzetta dello Sport, 282, 683 season tickets have been sold between the 20 Serie A clubs, up from 251,895 last year.

Milan and Inter have both overtaken Juventus on pure numbers, with each selling around 31,000 season tickets, just under 40 per cent of San Siro.

Juventus Stadium holds 41,000 people, so while their 29,200 season tickets sold out almost instantly, the Bianconeri can’t match the Milan clubs in terms of numbers.

However, the season ticket sales mean 70 per cent of the ground is sold out for every match, as was the case last season.

Milan have seen the biggest increase in season ticket sales, perhaps due to their exciting summer transfer campaign.

The Rossoneri’s numbers have gone from 16,441 to the present 31,000, with Inter up to that same number from 28,000.

Roma have also increased their season ticket holders, up 1,000 to 20,000, while Napoli’s remain all-but level on 5,888.

Atalanta, Benevento, Crotone, SPAL, Torino, Lazio, Udinese and Verona have all seen increases too.

Most other sides have remained on essentially the same level, with some slight decreases, with the exception of Fiorentina.

Viola fans are in conflict with the owning Della Valle family, and most of last season’s team was sold over the summer.

As a result, 3,000 fewer season tickets have been sold, with 17,000 bought by fans for the current season.
