AC Milan and Inter have been working on their stadium project for over three years and while some progress has been made, new roadblocks seem to appear all the time. The clubs, as such, are ready for a legal battle.
The two clubs presented their project back in September of 2019 and have since made plenty of changes to adhere to the city council’s demand. And after the public debate turned out quite well, many expected the process to be accelerated.
However, as highlighted by Corriere Della Sera (via MilanNews), there has instead been talk of a landmark status for San Siro’s second ring, which will turn 70 years in 2024. A matter that is completely unjustified.
In fact, the idea of a landmark status was explored back in 2020 and the Lombardy region established that San Siro has no cultural interest. The clubs have been working based on this decision and if it were to change, a legal battle would commence.
Milan and Inter would then argue that the decision had already been made back in 2020, demanding it to be preserved. In addition, they would ask for financial compensation for the time and effort spent on changing the project several times since that decision in 2020.
What a waste of time and money. I’m beginning to think we may not want to build a stadium after all. A legal battle will drag on for another 5-10 years lol. Build in Sesto. It’s ready with no political BS to wait for. San Siro is just a endless black hole of political garbage that will never get resolved. If we are serious about building a new stadium we will go to Sesto and nonlitigate in the courts of whether San Siro is a heritage site or not. Who cares. Waste of time and $$ we don’t have. Move on already Redbird.
