One of the stadiums symbols of European football – “Giuseppe Meazza”, also called “San Siro”, will be destroyed.
The giants Milan and Inter, who use the facility for their home matches, have reached an agreement to build a new and modern stadium.
The two clubs have approved the project, called “The Cathedral”, but it has yet to go through a public debate because the stadium is municipally owned.
If the project is approved, the construction of the new stadium will begin as soon as possible, and the optimal option for its completion is the 2027/28 season.
Although legendary, the 80,000-capacity San Siro is an aging facility, a stark contrast to the super-sea arenas that almost all of Europe’s giants now play in. Precisely because of this, it has been a fixed idea of Milan and Inter for several years now that the two clubs take a step forward in their development and also play in a new stadium.
The clubs also have a backup option, because if the project for the “Cathedral” is not approved, which is unlikely, there is also an option to build a new stadium outside the city.
At this stage, it is not clear where the two teams plan to host until the construction of their new stadium, but given the location of Milan, the possibilities of stadiums with the necessary standards are not few.
