TICKET BOOM: 140 thousand fans ready to face Genoa and Barcelona
No, it is not the effect of being in second place nor it is the idea of getting closer to Juventus. This is simply the new Inter environment which has never ceased to lose enthusiasm after returning to the Champions League. Even after the disappointing start with the loss in Reggio Emilia and the defeat right at home against Parma, everything the San Siro calls, Inter fans answer. And this time, there is even a more important reason to show enthusiasm because against Genoa, it will be the first home game for Steven Zhang as Inter president. Everyone is invited for this grand debut where more than 65 thousand fans are expected despite the fact that it is going to be Genoa and not Barcelona.
At least not yet. Because against the Blaugrana, the Meazza will be sold out as it was logical to expect since the day of the group stage draw. It will be a very sweet beginning of November for Inter coffers: in four days, there will be at least 140 thousand fans at the San Siro which will allow Inter to raise its attendance average that until today is at 62 thousand fans per home game. The lowest point of the season was against Cagliari: 55,486 fans. The peak, like there is even the need to say it, was the derby with 77,512 supporters that witnessed Icardi’s last minute goal. That game, Inter collected over €5M in gate receipts.
