Milan set new box office record for Italian clubs in win over Spurs

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan set a new Italian record during last night’s win against Spurs in the Champions League in terms of revenues from ticket sales.

According to, Milan beat Tottenham 1-0 in the first leg of their round of 16 clash in the Champions League with the decisive goal coming from Brahim Diaz, but there was another reason for the club to celebrate.

The Rossoneri have in fact set the new record among Italian clubs for the most box office takings for a single game. There were roughly 74,320 spectators at San Siro which raised a total of €9,133,842 in ticket sales.

As mentioned, the capacity crowd at San Siro were treated to a first UCL knockout stage win in 10 years and one day (with the previous beating the 2-0 victory over Barcelona at the same stage in 2012-13) and they were also part of an incredible four-sided display that was a quite remarkable spectacle for the cameras.

    1. It always depends on who owns the stadium primarily (i.e. the State or the Club themselves or a 3rd private party)

      1. If the club is owned by the state the clubs act as tenants and pay rent + a certain percentage of the ticket sales (ranging between 10-30% depending on the scale of team)

      2. If the stadium is owned by the club themselves then they don’t need to share the revenue but have to pay property taxes for the land on an annual basis.

      3. In the third case if the stadium is owned by a 3rd private party the conditions are similar to case 1 or at times the club can rent the stadium for a larger period striking a lumpsum deal.

      1. It doesnt work like this, its just a fixed amount for the rent + any maintenance expenses, which is around 15 m/y for each club

        You cant put a term that includes a percentage of ticket sales, especially when you are renting it to two different clubs who might play in a different competitions with different average attendances or different tickets prices.
