    Inter Fan Cards

    Inter were one of the very first clubs in Italy to launch fan cards, as follow up to a joint initiative by Lega Calcio, FIGC, the sports council, and Coni.

    The card offers fans many advantages (I will get to that later), although primarily it is a sort of "security" or identification card meant to distinguish good fans from hooligans.

    Inter launched the first Fan Card in 24 August 2008. It was somewhat successful, and anyone could apply for it for free. (Last year's application form)





    I think it was a very nice card.


    Yesterday, Inter announced something even better. In collaboration with Banca Popolare di Milano, this is this year's Inter Fan Card:




    It's a full-fledged smart card with many features. You've got your name on it and your picture, but the smart chip makes it amazing. It's called "siamo noi".

    Here are the benefits of the card:

    • Use it as a ticket. Instead of buying physical tickets, your ticket purchase is loaded into the card. Purchase entrance for a single match, or buy several seasons at once at a fixed price (The card is valid for 5 years)


    • Use it as a rechargeable Credit Card (MasterCard). Because it's a pay-as-you-go, you don't need a bank account, and you can refill the credit up to 3000 Euro.


    • Earn black&blueadvantages points when using the card to make a purchase. This will be in addition to new deals for B&B members for things like hotels and travel.


    • Special exclusive offers for Inter fans who have the card, coming soon at selected outlets.


    • First right to buy tickets before other fans


    • No queues and priority access to the stadium through the turnstiles


    • Access to all matches, even those behind closed doors in case of a ban from Lega Calcio or FIGC


    Getting the card is very easy. You need to go to a BPM branch, provide 3 passport size photos, fill the form, and pay 10 Euro. If you're already subscribed from last year, then it's free.

    So congratulations to Inter on doing something great. I can say for sure that our marketing is getting better and better every year, even if we have a long way to go to reach the likes of Milan or Man U, this still makes me very happy.

    Finally, I have a special request to anyone in Italy. I really really want this card! Can anyone who is close to BPM go there and see if they can get me one in my name? I can send my passport photos to you in Italy, if you can fill the form for me and do it in my name

    Great idea. Too bad you have to go to BPM branch.
    Forza Inter per sempre!!!!

    bobooooo (until



    I plan on getting that card as well. I think the closest BPM is about 300km away, so I'll tell you a week before I go to send me pictures if you really want.
    Impazzisco per te, questo e canto d'amor
    che mi viene dal cuor, FORZA INTER ALEEE.

    tritolone that sounds great! But you're far and I don't want extra hassle if it's a complicated process. Look into it and PM me if you feel it's easy to do.

    The resolution came a year ago to issue these cards from the Ministry of Interior (remember they are official ID cards). Can you guess who was the first club to implement them a couple of months later?



    Although we're a few months behind them, ours looks 10 times better than that crap



    Rumored to have cards this season are Fiorentina and Udinese. Roma and Lazio are being especially pushed to implement the system due to issues with their fans. Juventus have to cancel their online membership system before switching. The biggest problem is resistance from the Ultras who simply refuse ID cards. There will be a meeting at the end of this month to discuss these issues.

    Yeah, them and their "No al calcio moderno" shit. I guess using a card is 'uncool' for them, kinda like not smoking in high school.
