SM: Latest on the stadium situation – Green light close; two projects to be examined

By Vito Angele -

In Milano the derby may be on the horizon, but the countdown for the new stadium has started in a project that will united the two clubs.

In the last few days Milan and Inter have made great progress towards the acceptance of the two projects for the new stadium in Milan by the council, which, before endorsing any decision on this topic, wants to have certainties about the future of the current San Siro.

MILAN, INTER AND THE MUNICIPALITY

The last meeting of the municipal bodies ruled that Milan and Inter’s plans for a ‘new San Siro’ were acceptable and in line with the needs of the Municipality. In this regard, some areas of the old stadium will be saved.

As Repubblica.it reports, the orange grandstand, one of the towers and a Curva will be preserved to help transform the field into a sports citadel. A space that will contribute in part to replenish the coffers of the council, so that the abandonment of the rent of San Siro by the two clubs does not substantially affect them.

Having said that, Milan and Inter will pay rent immediately, as Repubblica.it report, rather than after 32 years as first thought. For the definitive yes, for which a few days would be missing,

THE TWO PROJECTS

The two projects for the new stadium will soon be examined by the competent authorities. One is that of Populous, already famous for the design of the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium; the other is that of Manica, an international design studio that stands out for innovation and creativity.

Through the portal nuovostadiomilano.com all fans can view the two projects with their characteristics. Or you can view the gallery of the Italian firm Manica and American giants Populous on our site.
