Milan’s pre-season tour of the United States and Canada will reportedly bring in as much as €3.5m in revenue, more than Inter and Roma.
The Rossoneri fly out to the States on Tuesday afternoon from Malpensa to commence a four-game tour of the country, which begins in with Thursday’s friendly with Olympiacos in Toronto, Canada.
Then, meetings with Manchester City in Pittsburgh and Liverpool in Charlotte, North Carolina follow, before the tour is closed out in Housten against Mexican side Chivas.
The first three games are part of Milan’s participation in the International Champions Cup and includes the prospect of a potential fourth match to close out that pre-season competition, two days before the meeting with Chivas.
The Gazzetta dello Sport have run through the figures and suggest that the whole tour is worth as much as €3.5m to the Rossoneri in revenue.
The publication assert this is more than Inter and Roma, also taking part in the International Champions Cup, are expected to earn from similar tours in the US.
