AC Milan are leading the way in terms of home attendance after the first two rounds of Serie A action, a report has confirmed.
After a year and a half of closed stadiums, Serie A has restarted with fans in the stands – albeit with only 50% of capacity allowed due to government regulations. Today’s edition of Il Gazzettino (via MilanNews) writes how in the first round of the season the most watched match was Inter-Genoa at San Siro (27,402 fans out of 37,961 seats).
That came ahead of Roma-Fiorentina at the Stadio Olimpico (26,997 out of 36,630) and Napoli-Venezia with 18,300 spectators in a Maradona that could have welcomed 27,363. Sampdoria-Milan meanwhile had just 4,966 out of the 18,299 seats that were available.
The second round of the season saw Milan-Cagliari top the charts with 31,946 out of the 37,961 capacity. Lazio-Spezia followed with 22,000 (out of 36,630), Juventus-Empoli with 17,584 (20,753), Fiorentina-Torino at 12,592 (23,641) and Salernitana-Rome 12,500 (16,650).
With Milan’s next two games in the league being against Lazio at home and Juventus away, the average should be set to rise.
