Juventus lead the way in season ticket sales

Carlos Tevez - Juventus Vs. EvertonThe initial season ticket figures in Serie A have been released and reigning champions Juventus lead the way in terms of tickets sold.

Serie A has struggled with low attendances for some years and the majority of clubs have sold fewer season tickets for the 2013-14 campaign than they have in previous season.

The Old Lady are out in front, having sold 28,000 tickets for their 41,000 capacity ground, a small rise from the 27,442 sold last year while local rivals Torino have sold 6,600.

Fiorenina are in second place having sold 19,520 seats at the Stadio Artemio Franchi and it appears that Vincenzo Montella’s first season in charge has revived the fans interest in the team, as sales have increased by almost 7,000 from the 2012-13 season.

In third place are Inter with 19,200 tickets sold though they still have a ways to go before reaching last seasons figure of 35,226.

In the capital Roma are ahead, having sold 18,030 tickets compared to Lazio’s 15,010.

Sampdoria have sold 17,500 season tickets which sees them equal Italian giants AC Milan in terms of numbers sold.

Serie A newcomers Hellas Verona have sold an impressive 14,936 which places them ninth in the league table while Livorno fans have snapped up just 3,700.

Cagliari have currently sold 0 season tickets on account of the confusion that continues to surround where their home ground will be.

Similarly, Udinese have only sold 3,060 as they will be playing in Trieste while the Stadio Friuli undergoes renovation work.

Parma, Chievo, Atalanta and Sassuolo are all currently on 0 tickets sold as they have not yet released figures or began their promotional campaigns.

Serie A runners-up Napoli have sold 3,000 tickets although this number is sure to rise as tickets have only been on sale for a few days.

In mid-table, Sicilian side Catania have sold 5,500 while Emilia Romagna’s Bologna are on 8,542. All figures are provisional and subject to change up until the first round of fixtures on 25 August.
