Milan can host almost 20K more fans at San Siro amid new capacity decision

By Isak Möller -

As was announced by the government earlier this week, Italian football clubs will now be able to fill 75% of their respective stadium, rather than the previous 50%. This is good news for AC Milan and will make quite the difference. 

The Rossoneri have started this season very well, with 19 points after seven games, and this means that many fans want to see them live. And with some big games coming up, including the derby, the 75% capacity will make a big difference.

Instead of the 38-39K that Milan were able to welcome to San Siro with the previous cap, they will now be able to host 56-57K fans. The latest reports suggest that they could soon be allowed to reopen the stadium fully, which is great news.

The game against Hellas Verona, though, will be played with 75% and most likely a few more games after that. That is, of course, assuming that there isn’t a drastic change in the COVID-19 cases in Italy.
