Milan and the ‘wild card’ stadium project revealed by Scaroni – the possible areas

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan are starting to evaluate different paths for their stadium project as the San Siro plan has hit yet another political standstill. In fact, just a few days ago, Paolo Scaroni revealed there is a ‘wild card’ project in the mix. 

The Rossoneri have been working on the new stadium for over three years, along with Inter, but it seems they will abandon the San Siro area. Without the go-ahead soon, they will switch their attention to other areas.

Milan’s president, Paolo Scaroni, said the following in a recent interview: “We are bringing forward three projects in parallel. One is that of Sesto San Giovanni and another I won’t reveal, it’s a wild card. If we don’t do it at San Siro, we’re also willing to do it alone. We won’t give up, I assure you that the Milan will have a new stadium”.

Of course, this sparked some discussion on social media with regard to the ‘wild card’, but based on rumours that have surfaced over the last few years we can deduce the possible locations.

The first suspect is Segrate, which is located near Linate Airport east of the city centre. There are plans to extend Metro line 4, which currently stops at Linate, all the way to Segrate and that would make it a good stadium option for Milan.

The other, and perhaps more likely suspect, is San Donato. It’s located southeast of the city centre and it takes 15 minutes to reach if you start at Duomo (Metro line 3). The transportation is thus already in place and would perhaps make it a bit easier for Milan in their pursuit.

It’s possible that there is yet another area in the mix but it seems unlikely based on what has filtered since Milan started looking at other areas. Sesto San Giovanni remains the big favourite, without a doubt.
