Juventus season tickets sell out after Cristiano Ronaldo arrival

Juventus have sold all their season tickets for the 2018-19 season following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

The Serie A champions said 95% of last season’s ticket-holders had taken up their option to renew, with those tickets not renewed sold to club members on a shortlist within hours of going on sale on Thursday.

This comes despite a price increase earlier this summer, which had annoyed many fans.

“Such is the demand for season tickets this year that there will not be any phase of general sale for season tickets.

“So, just under a month before the start of the season, the goal of 25,300 season tickets has already been reached, which together with the 4,000 premiums bring the total season tickets to 29,300,” a statement on Juventus website said.

The arrival of Ronaldo appears to have convinced those upset by the club’s decision to increase prices in some parts of the stadium by up to 37 percent, with an average increase of 30 percent, to ensure their place at home games.

Meanwhile, Leonardo Spinazzola, presented to the media on Thursday after returning from a two-year loan with Atalanta, hailed the arrival of Ronaldo.

The 25-year-old, who has been given the number 37, said: “It’s the number I took last year in Bergamo and it brought me luck — the number seven has already changed hands, so I left it to him [Ronaldo]. When I left, it [signing Ronaldo] was unimaginable.”
