GdS: Milan set attendance target for 2022-23 season as big crowds continue

By Oliver Fisher -

The AC Milan squad are getting used to playing in front of a full San Siro and the hope is that the trend continues in the crucial upcoming games.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that in the 2022 calendar year the Rossoneri have already had crowds of over 70,000 seven times, with three coming last season and four in the current campaign. Only the Champions League game against Dinamo Zagreb (just over 61,000) fell below that threshold, with the game being played at 18:45 CEST.

There is a nice round figure that Milan reached and exceeded last season: 1 million spectators attended home games at San Siro, while remembering that the current maximum capacity is 75,817 due to some blocks being closed.

More than 73,000 fans were there for the last home game of 2021-22 against Atalanta. There were certain limitations such as 75% capacity in the derby and the paltry 5,000 admitted against Juventus due to Covid rules – games that would certainly got over 70,000 fans.

The objective for this season is simple: 1.5million total fans for the season. By getting over 70,000 to big matches plus between 60,000 and 70,000 for medium-sized matches, and an odd game between 50-60,000 then it is possible, especially given the large base of 41,500 season ticket holders.

Obviously, there are many variables, especially in the last two months of the season, when the ranking situation weighs a lot. The goal is in reach and will get closer with the other two matches in the Champions League group (plus potentially knockouts) and the Coppa Italia too.
