GdS: Milan and Inter evaluate Sesto amid fears new San Siro plans will go up in smoke

By Oliver Fisher -

There are still no certainties surrounding the new stadium project despite the efforts of AC Milan and Inter to comply with everything thrown their way.

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) this morning, Milan and Inter had received the order from the City Council after the whole process of the public debate for the stadium to increase to 70,000 spectators, to not raise the price of tickets and to increase the green areas.

The last step was the resolution of the Council which has not yet arrived and seems to be very far from happening. The biggest problem is in fact related to the constraint that the government – in particular the undersecretary for culture Vittorio Sgarbi – wants to place on the San Siro stadium.

To this, a monumental constraint could also be added which is activated after 24 years, or in 2024 in the case of the San Siro. The Government therefore do not want to tear down San Siro while Milan and Inter, as usual, can do nothing but wait.

Milan and Inter are seriously beginning to think that their work in recent years is being reduced to smoke and are beginning to evaluate the various other plans, with the most credible at the moment being a move to Sesto San Giovanni.

The mayor of the region has already said he would welcome the clubs, while the former Falck industrial area would be the ideal spot to build the new stadium for Milan or Inter, or both together. The two clubs feel that they have wasted too much time behind the bureaucratic delays of Milan and beyond and need a new, modern facility that can implement revenues and increase competitiveness at a European level.

It is not yet clear whether they would keep the Cathedral project and if they would in fact build together, but in recent months it was above all Milan that considered Sesto as a possible option. Time is running out for everyone and a decisive turning point is expected in the coming weeks.

  1. It is realy Shame for us (Acmilan] in this Modren World to have stadium Shared with Inter.
    If ac milan wants to Compete in Europe it must have its own Stadium.
    Litle Clubs have their own playing Grounds.

  2. Typical Italian politics lol – like any of this was really a surprise?? We all saw this coming. They will never let us tear down and build a new stadium in San Siro. Time to move on. If Redbird are serious about turning us into a Liverpool-type structured club -that can compete with the best clubs in the world, then they will build a stadium in Sesto on our own. Period. Leave the old rotting San Siro to Inter and let them continue to pay rent for a old, un-modernerized concrete building that offers the fans little except for nostalgia

  3. At this point I really hope they do move. I used to not care much either way but now I really wish AC can stick it to the politicians. They don’t realize it’s Milan that’s doing them the favour by modernizing not the other way around
