Milan city votes in favour of San Siro

Milan’s City Council has voted today in favour of San Siro but also supported AC Milan’s and Inter’s project for a new stadium.

Both of Milan’s clubs would like to leave San Siro as it is commonly thought that it is not possible to bring the stadium up to modern day standards at a reasonable cost.

Plans have been released for a new 60,000 seats stadium that would replace the current one but the City Council seems to be against tearing the old stadium down.

Following a meeting earlier today, the councillors decided against destroying the old venue.

It is not however very clear what will be done with the San Siro once the 2026 Winter Olympics will end.

The new project received 27 votes for and 11 votes against, with seven people abstaining from voting.

Unfortunately for the two clubs this is not quite favourable, as Milan’s mayor Giuseppe Sala would like the project to be reconsidered as it favours the clubs too much and the city too little.

The new desired stadium will hold 60,000 people and would also have hotels, a park and entertainment areas, according to football quiz questions. The total costs is considered to be about EUR 1.2 bil.
