It has been a week full of developments on the theme of the new stadium as the ownership are pushing ahead to try and get AC Milan a new home.
As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) this morning, the club do not want to waste any more time especially after precious months have been lost since the launch of the joint project with Inter in 2019.
That was under Elliott Management, and Gerry Cardinale took over the club and subsequently operations with very clear ideas. His aim is to work hard in the coming weeks on a possible project on the site of La Maura racecourse and then make a definitive decision on by April.
All the other options remain on the table, a dossier has already been prepared, both for the Cathedral (as is known) and for provincial solutions, so now they must work on the racecourse area which has become the most credible alternative to the project of the new San Siro.
As emerged yesterday, Milan have already asked for advice from one of the most important companies in the sports management sector and with great experience in building new stadiums, namely CAA Icon. The company has already dealt with futuristic and innovative facilities especially on American soil and will help with consultancy for the new stadium.
A survey began circulating among Rossoneri fans yesterday and the feeling is that it would be a stadium with a capacity of 60-70 thousand seats and with a cost of between €500-600m, but of course the price will vary depending on materials and design choices.
The investment will also have to cover other fields not directly related to the structure of the stadium: roads, reclamation and ancillary works to name just a few. However, it is still unknown who will entrusted with the project even if one of the candidates remains the Populous studio who designed the Cathedral.
I’m sorry but a stadium with 60-70 thousand capacity for 600 million sounds impossible, the design and quality better not suffer from it
