CorSera: Monday decisive for new stadium project; the interesting idea for San Siro

By Oliver Fisher -

The verdict on whether the new stadium project is in the interest of the public is expected to arrive from the Milano city council on Monday, a report claims.

Italian firm Manica and American giants Populous showed their designs for a proposed ‘new San Siro’ stadium in an event put on by the two clubs last month.

However, they have not been able to proceed full steam ahead with the project, as it was revealed that only two council members voted in favour of the project in a recent vote.

According to the Milan edition of il Corriere della Sera on Thursday – as cited by Calciomercato.com – Monday will be a decisive day with regards to whether the new stadium can take a step forward.

The city council are apparently set to give a ‘conditional yes’ to the project presented by the two clubs, with the condition being the future of the current San Siro.

The council’s main objective is to avoid the demolition of the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in order to proceed with the construction of the new stadium.

The most interesting hypothesis regarding the current structure, the paper claims, is to remove the third tier, raise the pitch to the second tier and use the “lower floor” for the construction of a shopping centre.
