Libero: San Siro saga takes another twist – €10-15m of work is needed by 2026

By Oliver Fisher -

There has been another twist in what can only be described as a saga relating to San Siro, its demolition and the construction of a new stadium.

Libero (via recall that Milan and Inter are thinking of moving into a new home but the current Meazza stadium must remain standing at least until 2026 because in four years time it will host the opening ceremony of the Milan-Cortina Winter Olympics.

However, several improvements will be needed to fix it. The Council of Milan will have to spend between €10-15m to comply with the requests of the Olympic Committee, with the grandstand needing to be redesigned to be able to host heads of state and international delegations, and the press room will need to be expanded.

Changes also planned for the lifts with the replacement of the existing ones. Furthermore, it will be necessary to ensure that the various common areas comply with the standards set by the CIO.

A huge outlay of public money will therefore be needed, which could even exceed the first estimates. This raises the issue that the investment could in fact ‘vanish’ if the stadium were demolished shortly after.

  1. Let Milan and Inter lease the stadium from the City Council exclusively for 5 years. Each team will get 26 weekend of use per year.

  2. No wonder Italian football is loosing appeal and lag behind other league….San siro is turning into white elephant. Italian burecracy is disaster….plz move on and find other area to go for stadium….

  3. This isn’t burecracy at this point. The City wants the clubs to fit the bill to renovate the stadium for the Olympics because they promised the IOC. They are trying to force Milans hand to get what they want.

    Move the stadium. New Era of Milan, New stadium. I get the history, but thats just what it is, History. On to the next chapter.
