AC Milan and Inter had a meeting with the mayor of Milan last night, namely Beppe Sala, and the outcome was positive. The clubs agreed to amend some points and a timeline has now been set for the new stadium.
Guiseppe Meazza, also known as the San Siro, will host the opening ceremony for the 2026 Olympics and after that, it will be retired. This means that Milan and Inter can move into their new stadium in 2027 earliest.
As reported by Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews), the ‘Cathedral design’ that was proposed by the American company Populous is the front-runner for the project. ‘The rings’ of Italian company Manica-Sportium wasn’t received as well, per the newspaper.
Populous have recently opened an office in Milan and this is a strong indication that they will be in charge of the project. As said, the road up until now has been long but at least there is a timeline in place.
