Repubblica: Mayor Sala asks Milan and Inter for stadium decision in letter

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Inter initially declared their intention to build a new stadium together four years ago, but now their paths seem to have split for good.

As reported by La Repubblica (via PianetaMilan) this morning, Milan and Inter launched a joint project for a new stadium back in 2019. It even got to the point of choosing a design – the ‘Cathedral’ by the Popolous studio – but now the idea has vanished.

Over the years the project has stalled, sometimes hindered by politics, sometimes by bureaucracy, often by citizens. The slowdown became definitive when the Superintendency decided to place a restriction on the current San Siro, making even partial demolition impossible.

The Council of Milan have sent a letter to Milan and Inter making official the presence of this constraint and thus probably putting an end to any plans of a join stadium next to the current San Siro for good.

However, Mayor Giuseppe Sala asked the two ownership groups to make an official choice on the shared stadium project in Milan in the latter. The Council want to know whether Milan and Inter still intend to move forward together and how.

A solution that seems more likely is that the idea is shelved and the clubs go their own way. The Rossoneri are likely to move to San Donato Milanese while the Nerazzurri are – admittedly a bit behind – studying a move to Rozzano.

  1. Has if he does not know that AC Milan wants to build is own stadium alone!Acting dumb to show off to media has if he cares about that all he cares is about the money we pay him for the use of the San Siro now that AC Milan is gonna build is own stadium and if Shinter can somehow build there own to then the San Siro is gonna be use four or five times and consequently lose huge amounts of money for the use of San Siro!Resuming all he cares is about the money we give him for the use of a stadium that should be ours not the council of Milan!

  2. Sala is an Inter fan. They clearly can’t afford a stadium without their ownership selling a large chunk of their shares or players…maybe he’s trying for a Hail Mary? If Milan updates their stadium plan to add a retractable roof then it’s over. No major event will choose San Siro if you have a 65k-70k seat new modern stadium with a retractable roof.

  3. Sounds like he’s sweating 😅. The Americans don’t have time for all this time wasting he’s been doing. He should have done his job. As I’ve said before, he doesn’t seem to understand that he needs the two clubs to build in Milan than the other way around

  4. As the San Siro (or part of it) was recently given “Heritage Status” this puts an end the the shared objective design of the two clubs for the stadium. Why does Sala need it in writing? I suggest he is [politely] ignored by the clubs for making a request that he is not entitled to.
