Unofficial tips and advice
AC Milan v Spurs
The Spurs Section is on the Green 3rd Tier (The Curva Nord) Blocks 357 to 343 and 344 to 360. PLEASE NOTE WE ARE IN THE OPPOSITE END TO WHEN WE PLAYED INTER. The Curva Sud is the home of the Milan Ultras. Click on the Blocks for a viewhttp://www.acmilan.com/en/stadium/map_of_the_sectors
We will enter through Entrance GREEN 5 (3 ANELLO VERDE).
There will be many barriers and controls that normally include a check of your Ticket and Passport. You should take these documents. This is Italian Law. Entry is through automated turnstiles, similar to Wembley. We then face a 10-15 minute walk up the winding concrete towers to our Section, where the facilities are very basic.
Falterona. Here you can catch a shuttle bus or walk the 30
minutes to our entrances – ALTHOUGH IT IS SAFE, CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN
WHEN WALKING PAST THE CURVA SUD ON ROUTE.
Or you can catch the Metro on the RED LINE 1 in the direction of Bisceglie and get off at LOTTO where the Police will put you onto shuttle buses to the Spurs Coach Park and then escort you direct to our Entrances. After the game and the ‘lock in’ the ONLY option back to the Centre will be the 1 mile walk (diverted from last visit) to the LOTTO Metro Station to catch the RED LINE 1 to DUOMO.

Milan Transport information in English
Finally, we should have a great time, this is Milan not Rome and there should be no problems at all with the Milan Ultras or the Italian Police. The San Siro is used to big games and is very well organised. The people of Milan are very friendly and most are happy to speak English. But in the area near the Central Station beware of pickpockets.
COME ON YOU SPURS!
