As expected, AC Milan have officially announced their plans for building a new stadium next to San Siro along with Inter, in a project that will cost a total of over 1.2 billion euros.
Directors of both the Milanese clubs have hinted at the new project in previous months, making it clear that their intention is to go through with tearing down the San Siro. Today, we received confirmation from Milan on the matter, in an official statement.
“AC Milan and FC Internazionale today filed with the Municipality of Milan the “Technical and Economic Feasibility Study” for the new Milan stadium and its multifunctional district.
“The New Milano Stadium is part of a larger project which foresees private investments for the city of Milan and the San Siro area of over 1.2 billion euros,” the statement read.
Now the ball is in the council’s court, who will have to decide about the future of San Siro. The stadium was included as one of the venues for the Olympics in 2026, but now that could change.
According to the details on Milan’s website, the new stadium will have a capacity of 60k, while the area around the venue will be a multifunctional district, creating jobs for over 3500 people.
