Hi Paolo I’m travelling to Milan for the game and we’re gonna stay in Milan for a few days. Am I best staying near the centre and travelling to the stadium that way?Hi, I'm Paolo an Atalanta fan. Glad to help any question you may have on your away trip for this match.
Atalanta stadium does not respect UEFA rules and furthermore is currently undergoing an heavy partial rebuilding which is due to end in a couple of weeks.
Therefore we had to play away from Bergamo all our CL matches (like we did in the past 2 years in Europe League).
First choice was in Reggio Emilia, Mapei Stadium where we always played our european league matches in the past two years, which is a nice little stadium but over 200km away from Bergamo and not well served by airports.
Luckily, with AC Milan selfexclusion from E.L. 19-20 season, San Siro became the most attractive option as very close to our town and with much bigger capacity.
There were some stupid claims by AC Milan and Inter Milan fans who did not want anyone in their stands for this match (crazy I know) so probably the second ring of San Siro will be closed at the sides behind doors.
First ring has already been sold out for bundle 3 CL matches season card (about 16,000 sold) so they are probably going to open one or both longline stands on the second ring.
Currently there was no way to find out where away stand will be... in normal Serie A fixture it is usually on 3rd ring (crap seats crap view....). That's depend I think also on how many tickets request there will be.
I'm also looking for someone willing to help us to buy tickets for the Etihad match as away tickets were given exclusively to their travel partner which is squeezing fans so much (and we already have flights bought by ourselves).
