Reports: Two firms in running as San Siro project nears crucial stage

By Oliver Fisher -

The project shared between Milan and Inter for a new San Siro stadium is beginning to take shape, according to the latest reports.

We have written extensively about the complex situation surrounding a the future of the Rossoneri’s home stadium in the past, and the saga has reared it’s head once again.

Milan president Paolo Scaroni confirmed earlier in the year that the plan is to accelerate the new ground development in an interview with ANSA.

Now, La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) are reporting that two projects are competing for the building of the new 60,000-seater stadium.

Those are the American construction giant Populous and that of the study by David Manica (from Sportium) together with the Italians of Cmr. 

The projects are being assessed by the two clubs ready for presentation to the city council, the report adds, while consultation over the planning process with citizens is also expected to take place as per mayor Beppe Sala’s requests.

The Milan edition of Tuesday’s il Corriere della Sera – as cited by MilanNews – claims that Populous are the favourites currently and that finances have been discussed with Goldman Sachs.

The paper goes on to add that exhibition or a digital illustration could be presented to Sala and the municipality on September 24, and that could be where things really take off.
