AC Milan and Inter have received the green light from the city council with regard to their stadium project. It’s now a matter of public debate, which will begin next week and determine the future of the project.
After presenting a revised project to the council, Milan and Inter finally got the green light and the council sent the matter to the National Commission for public debate. The project has also been approved there and the public debate in Milano will begin next week.
According to the official documents, as cited by Calcio e Finanza, Milan and Inter want to begin the construction in 2024 and then have the stadium ready by 2027. Only after will the Giuseppe Meazza be demolished..
Construction of new stadium (January 1, 2024 to November 18, 2027): Known as Phase 1. Includes work on the Via Patroclo underpass, the stadium as well as the Office Tower and Congress Center.
Demolition of San Siro (September 13, 2027 to July 31, 2030): Known as Phase 2. Includes the demolition of Giuseppe Meazza and the construction of the Commercial-Entertainment-Museum-Sporting areas.
In short, the entire project will be completed by 2030, even if Milan and Inter will be able to inaugurate their new stadium already in 2027. There could obviously be delays and since it’s so close to the new year, it could be pushed to 2028.
