    Very much looking forward to visiting you guys!

    Hey guys,

    I'm Thomas, from Antwerp, Belgium. I'll be visiting the city of Milan at the weekend of 9-10-11th November. Of course I have to watch a football game there

    I'm very happy to see that Inter (and not that other team) plays Livorno that weekend. So I'll be attending that game.

    I have visited many big cities in Europe and I've seen many (big) matches. Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Celtic, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Man Utd, Ajax, PSV, ... I've all been there and the stadium was packed. In Barcelona the atmosphere sucked. There was nothing, it was like ppl were watching a movie, terrible! The rest was ok. Of course in England and Scotland, the atmosphere is the best.

    It's comparable to my own team: Royal Antwerp Football Club, 2nd division in Belgium. Stadium looks like a bombed bunker, but hey, we always have 8000 - 11000 fans supporting their team, and that's alot for a Belgian 2nd division team. It more than the average of the 1st division tbh Anyways, enough about that.

    I have some questions about Inter.

    1. Where should I buy tickets? Online? Or should I wait and buy them at the stadium?
    2. How many fans will there approx be in your 80.000 seater stadium?
    3. What athmosphere should I expect?
    4. Any nice bars to go before/after the game?

    About 2 and 3: I know it's not a top game, so I don't mind it won't be packed. Just looking for good fans and a good game, and of course, and Inter win

    Thanks for your time guys!
    In Belgium, we say "Antwerp till I die!", but I guess it doesn't matter now when "I say NeroAzzurri till I die!"


    Cheers!
    Thomas

    Hi, welcome to the forum

    & to answer question 2 & 3 I'd say probably less than half of the stadium will be full so atmosphere won't be anywhere like a big derby game.

    Hey man, this thread might be of some use to you: Tickets to Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. It helped me when I went last season.

    Ed posted the link to buy tickets, but they aren't on sale yet for that match. You can either buy them from the Inter website or there are some places in Milano that will also sell them if you want to wait to buy them in person. It won't be anywhere near a sellout so you shouldn't have a problem waiting to get tickets, non-derby games are usually less than 50% full. The best atmosphere is in Curva Nord (2nd tier verde), however it's not the best view of the pitch so it depends on what you value more.

    Don't know about bars, I went straight back to my hotel after both games I went to.

    Welcome.

    1. Where should I buy tickets? Online? Or should I wait and buy them at the stadium?
    If it's only against Livorno, it's pretty safe to just wait and buy at the stadium. But if you want better/guaranteed seats, what I usually do is I ask the hotel concierge where I'm staying at to get the ticket for me.

    2. How many fans will there approx be in your 80.000 seater stadium?
    Against Livorno, it'll probably be just 50-60% methinks

    3. What athmosphere should I expect?
    Depends where you're seated. If you're at the Curva Nord, things may be hostile considering Livorno (left-wing) is a 'political rival'

    4. Any nice bars to go before/after the game?
    No idea

    The problem with atmosphere in Barcelona is two things:

    1) There are more tourists at the stadium every week than the average club, who don't know the chants & some would rather take a million photos than actually pay attention to the match. Some probably aren't even Barca fans & are just using Camp Nou as tourist destination.

    2) Barca don't allow fans to make their own coreo/tifo displays, for the big games they make them all themselves & tell fans what to do & when. This is something that I don't like. Also, the ultras mentality has been largely stamped out there (even though Rosell has let a few of them back in) so there aren't really a lot of people to "lead" the atmosphere.

    If you're going to the derby it's a completely different story, a lot harder to get tickets through official means. Most are sold out to fan card holders before general sale even happens. When I went I ended up having to pay out the ass on Viagogo for tickets.

    Hey visca thanks for the info how much you end up paying if you don't mind me asking? And is there anything I can do about it?

    It was 111.89 euro per ticket + a booking fee + a delivery fee. In total, about 146 euro per ticket. This was in 2nd tier rosso, you can get a little cheaper in some other sections.

    But the face value of the ticket was only 47 euro You might want to try contacting your hotel to see if they can do anything about getting tickets for you.

    You can also buy tickets from Solo Inter, the official store of the club (It's near the city centre). I guess that about 45k fans will be there, but that also depends on Inter's form. I think that if we'll be in a good form, you can expect that there'll be more than 50k.

    If it's against Livorno, buy at the stadium, it won't sell out. Curva Nord is by far the best for atmosphere, but don't go there against Livorno if you'll be offended by anti-communist chants, because there will be many.

    There's a nice smallish bar outside the stadium and there's always the Curva Nord bar.. if you feel like something a little earlier in the day, Bar Magenta near Cadorna metro/station is amazing

    The last time I saw Inter v Livorno, it was quite busy, but definitely not close to sold out.

    Also, did you say that the atmosphere in England was good?! Well, Italia is definitely nothing like England. Expect a lot more flags, scarves and definitely more chants/noise.

    I didn't even notice he said that. England & atmosphere don't particularly go together.

    As I told the other guy, depends whether you want atmosphere or good view of the pitch. Best atmosphere = obviously Curva Nord, but rosso or arancio sections it's easier to see what's actually going on. I didn't get to sit in CN because I was with a milanista, so I sat in 2nd tier rosso which was a pretty good view.
