MILAN – His name is Paolo Sacco, he was born in Milan in 1987 and he is an Inter season ticket holder (third tier, sector 350, row 6, seat 24). Yesterday morning at 09:45 he was the first person in the queue to buy a ticket for the Champions League final in Madrid.
Paolo will have to spend a few more euros than he thought, but he is happy to do so because the 225 euros for his Category 2 ticket will go to charity (he will choose which charity in the coming days).
All the remaining available tickets will go on sale at the branch of BPM in via Massaua on Saturday morning (5,000 of them are available to season ticket holders and Inter Club members). José Mourinho was particularly proud to hear that many people had started queueing two days before Saturday, and decided to give a ticket to the first in the queue.
"I cannot satisfy everybody, but with this gesture I want to show my affection for them," he said. "This is my applause for the passion of all the Nerazzurri fans. But the boy will have to prove that he has given the money to charity."
