    From reading on some other forums, there seem to be a number of Spurs fans buying tickets for Orange, 2nd tier.

    No problem, Tom.

    Of course, I'm not!! I live in Switzerland but I'm a very big Spurs supporter.
    I was in the San Siro the last time, as well.

    The most spurs (away) supporters will be in the green (2nd & 3rd) tier.:y15:

    The Green 3rd tier is always (also in this case) the official away section.
    The Green 2nd tier is a neutral section, and is as up for grabs as the others are. My guess is that it'll be a bunch of Spurs in the Green as well as the Orange 2nd tier.

    Where are you getting the tickets from for Green and Orange 2nd tier. I've been looking everywhere but would like to know a good website. Thanks

    Look at viagogo and mpestero.

    Also, they'll probably sell them from banks and at the stadium on match days.

    Does anyone know about the Milan point website. Their prices seem pretty reasonable, just wondering how reputable they are, the website looks official enough but that isn't hard to achieve.

    It's not Milan's official seller, but they've sold Milan tickets for years, and have a stand at the stadium.

    Google it, and you'll find many Milan fans having used it for a long time, and I couldn't find one negative review.

    Does anyone have any idea what the view is like from the green and orange 2nd tiers? Have heard that the view isn't great from geen 2nd so thinking of getting orange 2nd instead.

    Out of curiousity:
    How do you know there'll be many Spurs in the green 2nd tier?
    (I know the Spurs official allocation is in 3rd tier)

    Do you know any organized ticket deals, or is it just that you've heard a few others have bought there?

    I've bought at the 2nd Orange one myself, but might try to swap if there's many on the green one.

    I think the most Spurs will be 2nd green & orange.
    I've heard a few others, which have bought in 2nd green... but there will be many other spurs in 2nd orange and all over the stadium... I guess there will be arround 8'000 - 12'000 ?!

    Im looking at booking up on mpestero.com for 2nd tier orange. Has anyone else already done this? just curious to how it works do they allocate you a seat, row and block number? Will be booking up the ticket on my larry as going with two others who are sitting in the spurs end so if anyone else planning on sitting on their own in the neutral end feel free to give me a shout! Up the Spurs!

    My brother has done the Bologna - Milan train trip years ago but apparently it's very easy and they now have an express train that takes just 65mins.

    It's sounds like a doddle.

    I booked seats yesterday with mpestero.com, as yet i don't know if we've been successful as the seats are not released till 2nd Feb but i am hopeful. You provide them with your name, address, passport number and contact details and if i'm correct, if successful you go to the ticket office they have at the San Siro with your passport and the ticket should be there.

    For 2nd Orange Tier the price was 70 swiss francs each plus booking fee, not sure what this will be as i haven't heard back from them yet.

    If i hear anymore i'll let you know.

    Thanks for the info mate much appreciated. How many tickets have you booked for? I was hoping to book 2nd tier orange around blocks 256, 258, 260 more towards the end of the spurs fans. I take it they will only charge you and take payment if and when your successful! That's not a bad price either!

    Two tickets, for myself and my brother. They don't ask for any payment details just yet, i'm waiting to hear back from them, so you haven't got anything to lose apart from them having your name address and passport number !! It all sounds proper so should be no worries, at least you know you should have your name on the ticket which seems the big deal.
