As revealed by AC Milan in an official press release this evening, via MilanNews.it, they will announce the new stadium project along with Inter during an event on Thursday at 11 am. In other words, hours before the clash with Torino.
“On September 26, AC Milan and FC Internazionale Milano will present the concept designs selected for the new stadium, along with plans for a major urban redevelopment project in the area surrounding San Siro,” part of the statement read.
As MilanNews.it points out, the event marks the start of a process of listening and confrontation with the city and especially, the fans. Two different designs will be presented during the event, and only one will be chosen for the project in the end.
The event will be streamed by the two clubs, and fans will be able to watch it worldwide at www.nuovostadiomilano.com/en. Therefore, the San Siro era is coming to an end, as both clubs are making great progress with regards to the new stadium project.
It will be interesting to see the two designs of the companies in the running: the Italian-American Progetto CMR and the American Populous. According to Corriere Dello Sport (via Isak Moller on Twitter), the latter is the favourite to win the project.
