Mayor of Milan offers thoughts on stadium situation

By Ivan Stoev -

AC Milan and Inter have revealed their plans about building a new stadium with split ownership, which will lead to San Siro’s being demolished.

The other option would be to rebuild the San Siro and split ownership. However, there might be some issues with the city mayor as they do not want to lose ownership of the stadium regardless of the outcome.

The mayor of Milan, Beppe Sala, states that the council owns the stadium for a very long period of time and it is clear that they can not lose the ownership to both Milan clubs.

“We need to find a formula because it’s owned by the council with a very long-term concession,” he told reporters.

“It’s clear that we can’t lose ownership of the stadium. They can hand it over to us, [playing on it] via a long-term concession.

“Inter and Milan are now making assessments from an economic-financial point of view: building a new stadium will cost about €500-600m and I believe they’re also evaluating the cost of refurbishments.

“There’s only one constraint that I place on it: we can’t lose the stadium. Frankly I can’t say what the solution will be, but I’m inviting them to come up with a proposal.”
