In a few days AC Milan face Inter in one of the most spectacular games of the season, on the field and in the box-office.
The derby di Milano is just two days away. The rossoneri are preparing to face the Nerazzurri in the main even of Serie A week 8. A very important game for both teams but for different reasons. AC Milan need a win in a prestigious game like the derby to turn things around after the recent underwhelming performances while Inter want to continue the good results in this season start.
As Il Corriere dello Sport writes today, a record-breaking Inter vs Milan is coming. A new absolute record of attendants and the figures are clear: more than 78,000 fans are expected to attend the first derby of the season, which returns to be played at night after the lunch-match experiment last April. This spectre of viewers will lead to thrilling revenues for the clubs: 4.5 million euros to be precise will come from tickets and subscriptions sold. In this sense Inter-Milan becomes the highest-grossing ever match in Serie A history and the second ever on Italian soil after Milan-Barcelona on 28 March 2012, when the rossoneri put more than 4.6 million euros in their pockets.
Record numbers overtaking the 4.2 million euros of the last April derby. San Siro will be sold out, exhibiting a Champions League-worthy atmosphere. However, the two owners of Inter and AC Milan will not be present: Zhang Jidong and Yonghong Li will follow the big Sunday match from China, despite the timetable imposing a broadcast in the middle of the night. It will certainly be a parade of stars, between many champions on the field and notable faces on the stands. An almost more mundane occasion than the first row of La Scala.
