Italian Calcio. Serie A and B Attendance Map, 2006-07.

The attendance figures of many Italian clubs were negatively affected by the “calciopoly” scandal, which resulted, among other penalties, in Juventus’ relegation to Serie B.  Juventus wasn’t the only club to have a downturn at the gate.  AC Milan’s attendance was also down: fans were turned off by their role in the scandal.  Catania’s was down due to their having to play out the season at neutral venues, after the riot in December in which a policeman died.  The next season promises better, especially with Juventus back in Serie A, as well as Napoli and Genoa, two clubs with successful pasts and large fan bases.
