Yesterday’s meeting between AC Milan, Inter and the mayor of Milan was seemingly a success. There is now a timeline for the construction of the new stadium and there seems to be a general understanding of the matter.
As reported by Tuttosport this morning (via MilanNews), the words of the mayor (Beppe Sala) after the meeting bodes well for the future. The main issue was the size of the area for the stadium and the infrastructure around it.
Milan and Inter accepted the concerns of the city council and agreed to reduce the volume of the project. Decisive steps have, therefore, been taken but as we know in Italy, the matter is far from over just yet.
The new timeline for the project is 2027, as Guiseppe Meazza will host the opening ceremony of the 2026 Olympics. After that, it will be retired and the two clubs will be able to proceed with their stadium project.
