CorSera: Milan and Inter have ‘plan B’ for new stadium; relocation is involved

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Inter have a ‘plan B’ should the council reject the proposal to build a new stadium in San Siro, a report claims.

The current plan of course is to proceed with the building of a new structure next to the current stadium and to gentrify the area around it with a number of exciting developments.

An official event was held by the two clubs at Bovisa Polytechnic in Milano on Thursday, in which competing construction firms Populous and Manica-Sportium presented their designs to key officials from Milan, Inter and the city council.

The key information regarding the brief for the new stadium was outlined by Milan president Paolo Scaroni and Inter CEO Alesssandro Antonelli, before Manica showed their ‘wedding rings’ design, followed by Populous and their ‘cathedral’ concept.

There is of course still a chance that the council could reject the request for permission to build on the site for a number of reasons (environmental and financial mainly), so the clubs have a back-up plan.

According to il Corriere della Sera on Friday – as cited by Calciomercato.com – if a no comes from the council, the plan B is to build the new stadium in the Sesto San Giovanni district north of the city centre.

It is not the first time that the idea of building in Sesto has been proposed, as La Gazzetta dello Sport mentioned the idea last week due to the fact the area is outside the council’s boundaries.
