Cesena announce record ticket sales

Cesena announced today that they have sold a record number of season tickets for the 2011-12 campaign.

The Emilia-Romagna outfit enjoyed successive promotions in 2009 and 2010, before last season surviving their first campaign back in Serie A for almost two decades.

In light of their recent success, the club have today been able to confirm that sales for season tickets for the forthcoming season have increased by 8.7% in comparison to the last.

This now sees 12,114 season ticket holders registered at the club, and equates to an increase of around 1,000 fans.

Cesena CEO Luca Mancini attributed the increase to a loyal fan-base taking interest in the team's transfer activity this summer, and advantage of low prices.

"We aimed to increase to 12,000 fans and were successful. Today [in Cesena] we have about 12 season ticket holders out of every 100 inhabitants."
