Last July Chelsea defeated A.C. Milan in front of more than 71,000 fans at the Baltimore venue.
“Because of the success of last year’s match and the magnitude of the game this weekend, there’s been a misconception among fans that the game is already sold out,” said Stefen Lovelace, a media spokesperson for the Saturday’s game. “But fans are starting to learn that they didn’t miss their opportunity by not buying tickets when they first went on sale and that good seats are still available…so we’ve actually seen a spike in recent days.”
English World Cup stars Gareth Barry and Shaun Wright-Phillips, have joined City on its America tour and will be available for the Inter game.
City beat Mexican team Club America in a penalty-shootout after a 1-1 tie before 33,721 at the Georgia Dome on Wednesday, which included 3,000 free tickets to various Atlanta youth organizations. Over 50,000 fans attended Club America’s 2-1 win over A.C. Milan at the Georgia Dome last year.
