Milan bagged their greatest average attendance since the 2008/09 season racking up an impressive mean of 54, 651 fans for their home games. On the road, the rossoneri always had thousands cheering on for them and supporting the team throughout. Milan fans had a rollercoaster of a year from the initial hiccups to holding on to 3rd place and finally falling just 1 point short of a Champions League spot.

A Year to Remember
Overall, this was a year to remeber as a player or a fan. Milan took a huge step forward to ensure that the club returns to her former glory and get back to winning. None of this would have been possible without the incredible support of the entire Milan fan base especially the dedication of the Curva Sud in Milan.
Grazie Mille! Forza Milan!
