San Siro future: Inter and Milan officials meet Mayor for crucial discussion

The San Siro stadium issue has persisted for years now, with both Inter and Milan contrasting in their plans for the ground. The ground is owned by the City of Milan, and both clubs have requested ownership from the government, so that they can put their plans into motion.

Milan had plans to move away from the stadium altogether, building a new ground. But, those have not come to fruition in spite of rumours circulating over years. They have developed a sharing model with their local rivals that has served them well throughout their history, but the debates have become too loud to ignore anymore.

The mayor of Milan, Giuseppe Sala, met with Paolo Scaroni and Alessandro Antonello, the President of Milan and Inter’s corporate CEO respectively. The primary agenda for their meeting was the possibility of renovating the San Siro. WeBuild, the Italian construction company, has projected a three-month long timeline to deliver a report of the costs and other details needed for the plan. 

But both officials have insisted that other plans need to be made to host their games, or work around their schedule to avoid any losses. In addition, they also presented their desire for the area around the stadium to be redeveloped.

The San Siro has been nicknamed ‘football’s La Scala’, and there is no other stadium in northern Italy with a 70,000 capacity. While Milan have bought a plot in San Donato Milanese, right outside of the city boundaries, their rivals have bought land in Rozzano. 

Sala has revealed his worry about what will happen to the historic stadium if both football clubs move away from the official boundary of the city. And it also presents a huge question for what becomes of the history of the two Italian giants if the San Siro is no longer part of their future. 

  1. What is the capacity of San Siro ?

    70,000.
