Inter Milan is getting a big revenue boost from its fans … to the tune of several million dollars.

A report by Calcio y Finanza states that Inter Milan are on pace to set a season record for spectators at the Giuseppe Meazza

According to the report, Inter’s revenue from ticket sales and hospitality should top more than €5.3 million this season. The Nerazzurri are planning for nearly 75,000 fans Saturday in the Derby d’Italia match with Juventus.

On the average, Inter has more than 60,000 spectators for each home match. They have 905,000 in attendance thus far this season, including 200,000 from three home Champions League matches and 23,000 from the Italian Cup.

It will mark the first time since the 2002-2003 season the Nerazzurri have reached that mark for average number in attendance.

Inter has been helped with its race for Champions League positioning in each of the last two seasons as well as new offers and promotions for fans in attendance. One such promotion will occur with the next home match against Chievo Verona, where Inter will offer discount tickets for women to celebrate Mother’s Day and children under 18 where tickets will be just €10.

Across Europe, Inter is seventh overall in average attendance and could overtake Schalke 04 for sixth following Saturday’s match with Juventus. If things go to plan, the Nerazzurri could finish fifth in Europe, overtaking Real Madrid.

All told, Inter could see more than €45 million in total stadium revenue this season, which is a significant increase from the €32 million the team earned in the 2017-2018 season.
