You can probably just turn up to the game and buy a ticket then...
yeah, I'm sure it's not worth the bother of reserving the tickets. I mean of course the gate staff at stadia are going to just let rival fans in at the door :D

Buying tickets


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are various ways of getting tickets for a Serie A game. Many clubs sell advanced bookings on their official websites (see below), but for less prestigious matches you can buy tickets on the day at the stadium or in special kiosks in the city. Check newspaper ‘Gazzetta dello Sport’ on match day and it will tell you which tickets are still available and at what price.

If the game is sold out, then it is always possible to buy tickets from a tout outside the ground. Obviously this is always a risk, especially for the big name encounters, but if the match is not of popular interest then people regularly hire out their season tickets for one game. You give them the money and some form of identification and they give you the pass. You return it after the game where you will receive your ID back. It’s perhaps best to brush up on your Italian if you are going to go down this road.

Tickets range from £10-£20 for the Curva (the area behind the goals where the hardcore fans tend to set up), up to £80 for Distinti and Tribuna (the seats along the sides of the field). The tickets for the big games can cost more, but some clubs run special offers for children and even a discount if you are female (Cagliari, Siena, Brescia and Parma among others). Don’t worry if your tickets show two non-consecutive numbers as they are in fact adjacent seats.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What time are the matches?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Serie A and B calendar is now staggered to spread between Friday and Sunday, though the exact dates and times are not released by the Italian FA until around two weeks beforehand.

Most Serie A ties are played on Sunday afternoon at 3pm local time, though there are two evening games at 8.30pm, one on Saturday and one on Sunday, and a 6pm kick-off on the Saturday. The evening ties tend to be the biggest matches of the weekend, but also take European fixtures into account. For example, if Juventus are scheduled to play in the Champions’ League on Tuesday, their Serie A game will likely be brought forward to Saturday.

Serie B is not so easy to predict. One tie will be played on Friday evening at 8.45pm, another at the same kick-off time on Monday night. The remaining matches are at 8.30pm Saturday, although this tends to be restored to 3pm Sunday during the cold Winter months.

Last season I caught the final Serie A match at Siena. Then the place was sold out, because it being Siena's first time in Serie A in decades, Siena already avoided relegation, it was the last home game of the season, and this was the first time Siena residents could catch a Juve match in their backyard.

Even with the tight stadium capacity, I still managed to find a ticket. Honestly, I talked to a waiter about the upcoming matches, he put me in touch with the head cleaning woman at a nearby hotel who also was one of the societa matrons, and the next thing you know some local referee for the 18-19 year-old league offered me his pass.

That's the extreme case. Most of the time with Serie A matches, tickets will be available on game day (even with Juve coming to town). There's always the scalpers in front of the stadium if you're willing to pay in a sellout. Juve also has a lot of clubs in cities around Italy, but I found them to be more drinking establishments with satellite TV watchers ... and not very aware of how to physically get tickets to see their matches.

Indeed. Am very lucky :) Gray, just wondering, what keeps you from seeing Juventus? Is it your financial state? I thought Australians are rich
Of course we are. We all drive rocket cars and our streets are paved with gold. That's not the problem though. I just can't be bothered to go. I mean it'd take a whole week of my precious time, and I'd rather be in Australia, waking up at 4 in the morning to watch matches on TV, driving to my friend's house 30 minutes away. The atmosphere's much better at my friend's place.

:irritate:
