Serie A Attendances

Hopefully, attendances increase...

10 Years Ago, the average attendance for a Serie A match was 31,161 supporters.

Now... It is only a little more than 19,000.

The demotion of Juventus can be blamed to some degree, as a 20.3 percent increase in attendance has been witnessed thus far in Serie B.

-----------------------------My Thoughts--------------------------------

If scandals could be nearly eliminated and better monitored in Serie A, then an increase could be expected. However, this plan is long-term.

With Napoli expecting promotion from Serie B, along with Juventus, and Bologna well within reach, then a surge could come as early as next season.

The new safety procedures all stadiums must pass could now call for renovations on current stadiums, making them more "supporter-friendly."

Then again, this is all speculation.

If Cannavaro returns to Italy next season, it is natural that they will gain more supporters for whatever side he returns to. Just look at Barcelona sales figures from pre-Ronaldinho and now.

Italian football is in recession. It will pick up again.

This is a hope...

Here, people tend to support their local club.

From the looks of Serie A, you see many from different areas supporting Inter or Juventus because their local side has witnessed many sorrows.

This in turn, provides less opportunities for a smaller club to attract many supporters.

the problem is that now u can see every match on TV more or less without paying...this is a reason why there are not so many people that go to the stadium....u can see S.Siro full of people if there is a big match...but u can see it half empty if there is a match like inter-ascoli of coppa italia....plus 10 years ago football in italy was a sunday-sport...the sunday was the day for church and football for the italians...now there are game on saturday,on wednesday,on thursday on tuesday....its a mess....

football is not a sport anymore...its a business.....and this is another reason...

plus u go to the stadium to support ur team also in the bad moments...and then u understand that its all decided by Moggi???well Im not surprised that the stadiums are not so full anymore....

u're right there are many areas that support inter,juve and milan but this is the same in all the countries I guess....I guess that a lot of people outside Manchester support ManUtd...right?

Good point, but people here would be killed for saying they support a London side... In Italy, I am not certain if there is the same mentality. Correct me if I am wrong.

I think there were only 2 matches played on Saturday this weekend...the remaining played today... I'm curious to see the attendance figures for Milan, Inter, and Roma.

well in Milano if u say "I support Juventus" u die in a couple of minutes....let me make an example...In milano the 99% of the supporters are milan or inter fans...Juventus is one of the teams of Torino...but in reality the 99% of the supporters that live in Torino are Torino fans not Juve fans....coz Juve is a team that its supported in all italy...in fact when they play away from home they hav more supporters...In Lecce everybody support Lecce...maybe someone support also inter or milan or juve...but only coz these 3 teams are the history of italian football...

for this weekend Inter played behing closed doors,Roma had a lot of fans and for ACsh!t I dont know coz I dont watch the highlights anymore since the fat shi!t hav joined them....

Milan have had some luck with Ronaldo...2 goals...

Roma's attendance did not look that impressive IMO... I support them, but I did not see many supporters there.

I was impressed with Inter's supporters outside of the stadia...They are very dedicated.

coz the inter supporters are the best!not coz Im one of them...but coz after all the things that we've been through..we're still inter supporters...

but why a guy that lives in Manchester supports Roma?
