GdS: One firm in the lead for new San Siro – all the details…

By Oliver Fisher -

One construction company is leading the chase to be in charge of the project to build the ‘new San Siro’, a report claims.

AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni revealed earlier in the year that the plan is to build a new stadium with Inter in an interview with ANSA.

Tuesday’s il Corriere della Sera – as cited by MilanNews – then stated that there are two firms are in the running to manage the project.

Now, Thursday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews.it) confirms that American firm Populous and the Italian-American company Progetto CMR are the two who are competing.

In addition, they report that Milan mayor Beppe Sala will make a ruling on the new stadium request by October 10, so has invited the companies and clubs to share the project with citizens before then.

A presentation is planned for September 24th in which the two construction companies will present their ideas.

As Calciomercato notes, Populous were the driving force behind modern structures such as Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, Benfica’s Estadio Da Luz and the new White Hart Lane.

Meanwhile, Progetto CMR are the ones who have submitted designs for the future Cagliari Arena, but it is understandably Populous who are clear frontrunners.
