Why are the stadiums always empty for Serie A? It never seems like there are any fans? Anyone know why?

It seems weird since Serie A is one of the best in the world...

I think its because they have very big stadiums. You have relatively small clubs like Lecce, Bari, Chievo, (Juventus :tongue: ) all in 40,000+ seater stadia. Then you have 4 teams playing in stadia bigger than 80,000, which you can't expect to be full every game, so it's really more about creating an illusion of few fans.

In terms of average attendence they're right up there, behind only EPL and possibley the Bundesliga.

I would rather have the Delle Alpi not even a fourth full than Moratti as our owner.

:D

I think all the matches are on at least pay TV over in Italy now as well which doesnt help.

Anyway Roma will get an average of roughly 53,000 or so this season which is quite good for a team whcih isnt playing so great, last year it must have been higher. Inter and Milan as always will get 60,000+

In England fans go to every match no matter what. I found it unbelievable that Chelsea, Arsenal and Man utd managed to get sell out crowds in the FA Cup 3rd round against crappy teams just to go and watch their B team. I mean, whats the point of wasting £25 on them crapp matches. In the end Man U only drew 0-0 to Exeter also which was funny :D

Thanks

Isn't Juve reducing the size of their stadium? I saw that a couple years ago on a Polish football site...

Yeah they brought the lease for the next 100 years and aim to completely refurbish the ground, it will drop the capacity to around 30,000 though.

I thought the new capacity would be 42,000, while Toro's new stadium in the centre of Turin will be around 30,000.

Seems rather stange given that one of the reasons put forward by Juve for their lack of support was that the Delle Apli was too far from the city-centre. This would have been an ideal oppurtunity to rectify that, I would have thought. :eek:

It's a long time since I don't pass near the Comunale. Have they already started the works on it?

From what I understood, it will be a new stadium on the site of the old Comunale. Am I wrong?

No, they mantain the old structure and simply restore it, then build the 3rd ring and the roof on the stands.
