Default Ticket sales

We sold out 30.000 season tickets, which I thought was very good but then I saw that here in Belgium, Bruges has 20.000 season tickets.

Now if we compare Milan to Bruges ,then we must see that Milan is alot greater so how come we 'only got 30.000'.

I thought we were doing well, 30.000 isn't nothing but when I saw this I thought, wtf how come Milan doesn't has more.


Possible reasons.

Inter Milan ( not that they have so much fans), but people in Milan who love football are for Inter or for Milan so that takes a part of the town away.
If you only would have one team in a town everbody would love them and you would have more supporters.

Stadion
I never been in San Siro, but stadiums in Italy kinda suck, at least from what I hear.


So the question about all this (maybe to for u useless thread , but I find it important)

How come Milan don't have more people who watch at the stadium ?
What can we do about it ?

You're overreacting and comparing our numbers in wrong system(to a Belgium club). Just check the development of the ticket sales compared to last years situation as well as Serie A average to know that Milan is on top of the league in attendances(though we fell second last year against Inter). Our season ticket sales were going better than Inters too the last time I checked so I'm confident we can take back our throne in attendances.

What can we do about it?

Go to the game

Edit:Here you can look at average numbers of the top leagues

Well we topped the league last year too, but we had our share of luck with having big games before the new laws. Other wise I Think Inter would have beaten us. According to soccernet.com we have topped the league since 2002/2003.

You are very unaware...30 000 is much more than last year in this time. 30 000 is very,very big number,because itīs not a tickets for one game,than for all AC Milan Serie A games. And hopefully will be rise to 40 or 45 000...all we proud with AC MILAN and their fans...
So,it`s super to see that we have sold 30 000 yet.

I know it are the tickets for an entire season.

I just think that a club like Milan should have more people in the stadium.

Their should be at least 70.000 people for every game, it's not nice if the stadium is half-empty

Of course the stadium will not be half-empty. And of course Milan will have more people in the stadium. Not everyone can afford season tickets. Hard to imagine zero people buying tickets for individual games, especially against the top teams. I look at it this way - even for matches against the poorest teams, San Siro will still have close to 30,000 people on hand. Pretty good numbers. With Juve back, as well as Genoa and Napoli, those numbers will be even better.

RE: Belgium. How much are their tickets? Could be that their season tickets are cheaper.

Could be that they are cheaper, but the ones of Milan are ordered good, you could get cheap ones or more expensive.

And I know that their will be people buying for individual games, but I don't think that their will be 20.000 people buying individual tickets every game.

These are the prices right ?

6 'themes' are below 200 euro, they are probably all sold out , not ?

I can understand that the ones who cost more then 1000 euros aren't going to be sold in 2 seconds but can somebody give me numbers about how many people can be in which category ?

And one other thing, how much do these tickets give Milan in an entire year ? ( the amount of money).

And I know 30.000 isn't bad but I just think that we should do better, how long will it still take before you can't buy any season tickets anymore ?(if it ever stops).

If we can rise to 40.000 - 45.000 then I will be very happy

If you think it's boring then don't read it

I think fans are very important to a club, and a good club needs alot of fans in their stadium.

Look at Liverpool, fans like those should be every were

Seriously Kakā_&_Gourcuff you should pay attention to the information/links provided by other members and drop this discussion. Milan's nr. 1 in their league and that means they are the best in their world. Liverpool doesn't even have a stadium big enough to be in the same category with us.

I'm aware of the links, but if entire Italy has 5.000 visitors , does it mean that 10.000 would be good ?

I just think that it's wierd that a club in Belgium has 20.000 season tickets and Milan 'only'( yes I know it is much but still) 30.000 season tickets.

There should be more fans in the stadions in entire Italy, last time I saw a documentaire about stadions and fans.
Italy stadions were old and people didn't came anymore.
A shame for football, within a few years everybody will be watching it on TV unless we deal with it and 'upgrade the quality of San Siro'.

A roof, nice activities, a shopping center, .. I don't know what could bring double as much people to San Siro.

Double the people, double the noise, double the motivation.



And for the last time , I know whe are doing well looking at the other Seria A teams, but look at it yourself

2002/2003 64.000 people
2006/2007 51.000 people

Now tell me, is the number going down or not ?

Thats not for season tickets,its for average attendance...
I read today that we have sold 31 000 season tickets which is 1000 more sold in 2 days...
I guess till the season kicks off we will have more then 40 000 season tickets sold....

So, if in 2006/07 average attendance was 51,000, with only 11,000 season tickets sold as of June, 2007/08 should be a lot better than that because 31,000 season tickets have already been sold in the same time period. Very promising.

If you are right, then it's good.
ButI don't think there will still be 10.000 more

Nope you are not right that our ticket sales are a problem.

Compared to last year we are up 200 points:
SEASON TICKETS: ALMOST 32,000
7/10/2007
MILAN - The official data of purchased tickets by the Rossoneri fans for the San Siro league matches of next season is the following: 31,821 (Monday they were 31,331), for a total of 9,807,250.00 Euros. A year ago that figure stood at 10,420 (for a total of 4,472,183.00 Euros).


There is no correlation between Milan's success and Bruges ticket sales. There is a correlation between Milan's ticket sales and average Serie A attendance as Milan has plays in Serie A and is affected by other teams and overall audiences. And we're topping it 5 consecutive years.

Liverpool isn't even a close to argument as they're Anfield's capacity is thousands away from our average attendance.

Fact is our attendance is best in their league and in TOP 10 from all around Europe therefore it's not a problem.

It's a question beyond imagination and focusing on only one fact which doesn't make the picture. But if...entire Italy has 5.000 visitors; Bruges had 5000; Milan would top the league with 15 000(to get the equivalents close) average attendance at a 19 000 capacity stadium and be in Europe's top 10 with that; top last year's sales with 200 points - then YES it means it's good.

Let's try to take the steam off.

I guarantee we will hit the 40k mark before the season starts. Last year it was about 37K if I recall it correctly so let's just wait and see. My prediction is around 47K
