CM: Milan aim for San Donato – four critical issues to get approval for new stadium

By Oliver Fisher -

While the January transfer window and a crucial run of games might well be dominating the headlines surrounding AC Milan, the new stadium project continues to hold weight at Casa Milan.

According to this morning’s edition of Il Cittadino (via, Milan are continuing to work on the stadium project in San Donato, for which the green light has not yet arrived from the municipal council led by by Mayor Squeri.

The source claims that there are still four critical issues that the Rossoneri will have to rectify in the over €1bn project presented to the council: the infrastructure, the road system, the environmental compensations and the environmental impact on the area.

Within about ten days the Council should give their approval after the analyses of a series of technicians chosen by them on the project variant presented last September by SportLifeCity, the company controlled by Milan which purchased the area on where the stadium is to be built.

From there the project could be started, but that is of course without any objection to the changes that may or are likely to be requested from the club regarding their plans.

As a reminder, the ownership want to build a new 70,000-seater stadium in the area but there are also a number of other developments planned around it, which we outlined in a Substack feature just over a month ago.
