Mayor Sala ‘continues to be positive’ about new stadium, insists it must be built within Milan

By Mitchell Wilks -

Mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala is adamant that a new football stadium for AC Milan and Inter can still be built within the city, despite an apparent stalemate to plans.

A new stadium for the clubs to share, dubbed ‘The Cathedral’ was proposed to replace San Siro some years ago, but plans have been delayed due to a number of factors.

Sala, speaking at the Telepass Milano Marathon (quoted by MilanNews) ensured that there were no new location arrangements: “We are in constant contact with the teams, and it is clear that it is important that he stays within the city limits. I continue to be positive.”

He added: “I don’t think teams are against public debate. It is clear that they are asking for clarity on the times and we are working on it, working hard as we have always done,” Playing down ideas of both teams deciding to go ahead with the plans outside of the city.

Sala continued, ensuring that the project to build the new, improved stadium would be going ahead, but without spending money that isn’t available, or without solid plans.

Current arrangements involve building on the grounds of San Siro, which is owned by the city council, resulting in the current stalemate around beginning work on the new stadium, ‘The Cathedral’.

  1. This Mayor only want both club rent stadium forever, thats why he make it difficult. Losing rent money meaning losing 20m euro / years income for their government. Better build outskirt Milan or other location if they keep make it difficult
