AC Milan set for Inter split with new stadium

Published Add your comment

Italian giants AC Milan have released initial plans for a new 48,000 capacity stadium which would see them end their ground sharing arrangement with rivals Inter at the San Siro.

The club have made a bid for land in the urban area of Portello and hope to have the ground ready in time for the 2018-19 season. 

The project, which includes plans to redevelopment the whole area with a hotel, sports college and restaurants, is estimated to cost £240 million.

End of an era

Seven-time European Cup winners Milan have called the San Siro home since the 1920s and, if this plan goes ahead, it will mark the end of a historic ground share between the Milan clubs since 1947.

But Milan fans will not have to travel too far from the 80,000 seater stadium to their new home, which will be located just two-and-a-half miles away from the San Siro.

There has, however, been some concern amongst Milan fans whether the 48,000 size capacity is sufficient for a club their stature.

Emirates inspired

Architect Emilio Faroldi says the stadium plan was inspired by Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium.

State of the art technology is being used to make the ground as environmentally friendly as possible including soundproof materials being used to keep noise in the stadium and not affect those outside.

Final approval of the plan is expected in March.
