Councillor claims there is ‘no project’ from Milan and Inter yet regarding new stadium

By Oliver Fisher -

A Councillor has suggested that AC Milan and Inter do not in fact have any concrete stadium project ready to launch at the moment.

The council elections have concluded Giuseppe Sala has remained the Mayor of Milan, which is good news for Milan and Inter who believe that the time has really come to get a decisive acceleration in their project to build a new stadium.

Italian firm Manica and American giants Populous are the two competing companies trying to land the project, with both Milanese clubs absolutely intent on constructing a new home to help take them into the modern era but also keen on renovating the area around the current stadium into something that can be used seven days a week and not just on matchdays.

The Councillor for Urban Planning in the Milan area – Giancarlo Tancredi – gave an interview to il Corriere della Sera this morning during which he began by talking about the stadium issue.

“At this time no decision has been taken. If and when it is taken, I expect a very high level project. At the moment there is only a study phase, no project,” he said (via MilanLive).

“I like the idea anyway, it is particularly interesting the overall vision and the redevelopment of an area in which there are different realities.”

  1. These people are the reason Italian clubs are toiling in the UCL for the last 10 yrs. We cannot generate enough revenue to compete at the Elite level with our current facilities. The Stadiums we rent are old and do not maximise sponsorships or income potential of our clubs.
    The Council just wants to keep receiving money for rent from us..theyy don’t want to lose their ” Cash cows”. In the meantime, Italian club football continues to rot away.
