Repubblica: Four companies compete for San Siro project; renderings expected soon

By Oliver Fisher -

Four constructors are battling for the contract to build the new San Siro should plans get the go-ahead, a report claims.

A lot has been spoken about the iconic venue in the last few months, from Milan and Inter’s plans to construct a new version to Atalanta controversially occupying it for their Champions League home games.

Il Corriere dello Sport recently revealed (via MilanNews.it) that the Supervisory Commission has chosen to close part of the stadium where vibrations can be felt.

We wrote extensively about Milan’s stadium dilemma, while in June club president Paolo Scaroni confirmed the Rossoneri’s plan to construct a new stadium during an interview with ANSA.

The newspaper La Repubblica on Tuesday (via MilanNews.it) talks about the potential for a new San Siro.

They state that leaders from Milan and Inter will meet in the next 49 hours to see the first renderings of the ‘Nuovo San Siro’, for which there are four companies competing.

Two Milanese firms – that of Stefano Boeri plus that of Progetto Cmr and Sportium – are doing battle, while two companies from abroad are also in the running.

The American companies Popolous (who made the new Wembley) and Hok (made the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta) are the other two, La Repubblica concludes.
