Inter crack top 20 attendances

Inter were the only Serie A club to crack UEFA’s top 20 in terms of total spectators last season.

The Nerazzurri finished seventh last season, but still drew an average 46,622 fans to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

In total 885,818 people attended the Beneamata’s home games last season, putting them 15th in UEFA’s attendance ranking, the only Serie A club to crack the top 20.

The rankings were released today as part of UEFA's European Club Footballing Landscape report.

Barcelona topped the chart with 1,482,646 fans attending Camp Nou last season, followed by Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid.

Two Scottish clubs attracted more fans than any Italian side, with Celtic boasting an average attendance of 54,726 and Rangers 49,156.

Milan’s average attendance last season was 40,294 while Juventus came in third with 39,489.

The Bianconeri frequently sell out their stadium for home games, but the Allianz Stadium holds only 41,507 compared to 80,018 for San Siro.

Like 17 other UEFA countries, Serie A attendances were largely stable with a year-on-year change of less than five per cent in attendances.

Slovakia, Lithuania and Estonia saw attendances fall over 15 per cent, while Scotland, Albania and Belarus achieved increases of over 15 per cent.

In terms of total attendance, Serie A comes in fifth behind the English Premier League, the German Bundesliga, the English Championship and Spain’s Primera División.
