Certain numbers are more than mere cold, hard facts. They tell the story of the passion and that common bond which ties together supporters of this magnificent club. These are the figures about the desire to go to San Siro and see the team in person and to get behind them. Being there is something unique and no sofa and 4k television can compare, let's be honest.
Travelling to the match together, feeling that hope running through you before you hear the turnstile click as you enter the Scala del Calcio. Then, the chanting, the choreographies and the feeling of shared understanding. That feeling that you're all together as one inside the stadium as support for Inter wonderfully binds people together
This year, over 1.3 million people have turned up to experience this. Across Serie A, the Coppa Italia, Champions League and Europa League. We're in the Top 10 for attendance figures in Europe and Inter have had the best attendance in Serie A between 2013 and 2018. This year, thanks to an average attendance of 60,000, Inter have moved up to the Top 5 for attendance figures in Europe, ahead of Real Madrid.
They might seem to just be numbers but no. They're the men, women and children who do their bit every week to help the team. Being there to cheer them on and believe. Such supporters deserve their place among the big teams in Europe. More than everyone else because we're a fanbase worthy of the Champions League!
