Football fans wishing to watch SSC Napoli of Italy striker, Victor Osimhen in action with his clubmates next weekend, when they go out for their first match of the new season in the Italian Serie A, will pay the cost of tickets ranging from €5 to €70.
Megasportsarena.com gathered that this follows confirmation of ticket prices by the Naples-based side for their opening match of the season on August 22 against Venezia, who earlier this week welcomed David Chidozie Okereke on loan from Club Brugge of Belgium.
Okereke was confirmed at the Venice-based side just a month after they also received Tyronne Ebuehi from Benfica of Portugal in a similar arrangement, with a view towards ensuring they get a decent run back in the top-flight, starting with a likely upset next weekend against Napoli.
This means Osimhen will end up rubbing shoulders against visiting Okereke and Ebuehi in the Serie A’s 2021/22 opening week clash at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, starting at 8:45pm CEST next Sunday, ahead of which the Naples’ Blues revealed various ticket prices for the game.
It is expected to be a full house of ecstatic partisan fans rooting for the former Ultimate Strikers of Lagos, VfL Wolfsburg of Germany, Sporting Charleroi of Belgium and Lille Metropole of France striker, as the graduated tickets should be affordable to different categories of their fans.
The rundown of varying costs as announced by Osimhen’s club’s marketing department include Tribuna Posillipo: €70, Tribuna Nisida: €50, Tribuna Family: €10 (adult), €5 (U12), Distinti: €35 and Curvas: €14.
Aside the costs various tickets will carry for the game, Osimhen’s club went on to remind visitors and fans to keep in mind all COVID-19 regulations during their stay at the arena that is named in honour of one of the club’s leading legends and Argentine ace, late Diego Maradona.
Napoli’s official ticket sales’ statement added: “No concessions prices are available, aside for those in the Tribuna Family. The stadium capacity will be reduced for this match, in accordance with current regulations.
“Tickets can be purchased online via TicketOne. Each fan may buy a maximum of four tickets. At the end of the purchasing procedure, the ticket will be sent by email. This must be printed and shown at the entrance of the stadium.
“To enter the stadium, spectators – except children aged 12 and under, who are exempt – must be in possession of a Green Pass (COVID-19 certificate) as per Article 9 of Italian Decree Law 52/2021.
“Spectators must wear a mask for the entire duration of the event and stay in their allocated seats. Body temperature will be measured on entry. Any individuals with a temperature of over 37.5°C will be refused entry to the stadium.”
Additional information provided by Napoli’s media unit on the club’s website also revealed details of the build-up training sessions Osimhen and his colleagues are going though ahead of their opening match of the new term.
Heading into next weekend’s game at home versus Venezia, Osimhen has been put through a daily routine that sees him and his colleagues engage in both physical and technical sessions at the club’s training base in Castel di Sangro.
The drills include gym work, physical conditioning, tactical formations, a-side-games and other forms of technical build-up arranged by their new coach, Luciano Spalletti, under whose expert eyes Osimhen continues getting fully involved in adapting to the gaffer’s instructions.
While a number of the squad’s regular players have been excused from training due to various forms of injuries and a couple of others go through limited time during the sessions, on account of their processes to regain full fitness levels, Osimhen has been present among the active lot.
Information provided by the Naples-based club revealed that Friday’s session marked Day 9 of their pre-season drills and just one week to the date they will host newly promoted Venezia at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, starting at 20:45 CEST on August 22.
Osimhen was found in the summary from Wednesday to Friday, as Napoli’s media unit revealed details of the team’s day-by-day training sessions, noting that their drills at the beginning of this weekend began with possession work, followed by a mini-match and focus on tactics.
The report out of Naples added in part: “Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli squad were back on the training pitch on Friday for the ninth day of their pre-season training camp in Castel di Sangro.
