Milan clubs still leading popularity charts in Serie A

There is no doubt Juventus have been the exclusive powerhouse in the Italian football for the last decade or so.
Both Milan clubs have struggled to remain relevant as their Turin-based opponent continue to accumulate silverwares. AC Milan’s last Serie A triumph came in 2010-11 and Inter won their last Scudetto the year before.
However, Milan clubs can take solace in the fact that despite their recent failures, they remain the among the most watched footballing sides in Italy.
According to the numbers released by the Italian Football Observatory, Inter topped all Serie A clubs in terms of average home attendance in 2018-19. Inter saw an average of 62,281 fans attend their home games at 80,018-seater San Siro. Compared to the last season, Inter witnessed a substantial 8.3% increase in numbers.
Part of this increase is down to the ease of getting tickets, and for visitors from abroad, getting Italian Serie A Tickets, and also UEFA Champions League Tickets, has been made simpler by companies like who allow you to secure your tickets in advance rather than needing to go to the stadium directly.
AC Milan were second in the list with a figure around 53,000. However, their year-on-year increase was a minimal 0.5%. There was not much between the two Milan sides last season as Inter finished only a solitary point ahead of their local rivals. However, that single point proved to be the difference between Champions League football and Europa League.
Champions Juventus found themselves in the third spot as they attracted an average audience of 40,020 in their 41,507-seater Juventus Stadium. The Turin club saw an increase of 1.8% in their average home audience.
Capital clubs AS Roma and Lazio complete the top five in the list. Roma were not far behind the Serie A champions with 38,556 fans attending their home games. They endured a difficult season in 2018-19, but their home attendance increased by 2.9% from last season.
Lazio grabbed the fifth place as the club attracted 34,603 fans on average to their home games. They were among the biggest movers in Serie A as this figure included an increase of 11.6%. Fiorentina, Udinese and Cagliari were the biggest movers with each witnessing at least a 15% increase on last year’s number.
On the other end of the list, Napoli and Sampdoria were the biggest losers among four clubs which saw a decrease in their home attendances. The Naples club saw a drastic 26.8% fall from 46,155 in 2017-18 to 33,773 in 2018-19. Sampdoria suffered a 3.9% decline in their numbers. Bologna and Genoa were the other two clubs whose attendance suffered a dip from the last season.
Overall, the average attendance in Serie A increased by around 2% from the 2017-18 season. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
