Milan are set to earn a little over €10 million from the Champions League semi-final first leg tie against Inter.
The Rossoneri’s financial situation hasn’t always been the best in recent years and they did endure a 2-0 loss to Inter in the first leg of the semi-final, but the game against the Nerazzurri has proved to be a real money-spinner.
Antonio Vitiello has reported that the attendance of 75,532 is now a record for the Rossoneri and a result of that, they will earn €10.4 million as an attendance fee for the game.
The Rossoneri have already earned over €80 million from their progress into the semi-finals of the Champions League so far and the attendance at the San Siro against Tottenham had also broken records, while helping the club financially.
The second leg will technically be a home game for Inter and Milan will be playing an away game, even though they’re playing at the San Siro.
