AC Milan and Inter Milan announce their plans for the 'Nuovo Stadio Milano’on Thursday morning. The Italian giants are looking to develop their own stadium in the heart of city to raise their level of revenue from matches as the San Siro is owned by the municipality of Milan. The new stadium would be a pillar of football in Italy as the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza has been. The BBC reports that the project will cost an estimated 650 million and take three years to complete and will boast a capacity of about 60,000. The project will no be surveyed and assessed by the Milan clubs, stakeholders and the municipality. Fans will also be able to have their voices heard on the project website here. The two proposals that have been shortlisted can be seen below:

Proposal 1: ‘The Cathedral’ by Populous draws inspiration from two of Milano’s most iconic buildings; the Duomo and the Galleria. In fact, a sunlit galleria encircles the stadium enveloped by an elegant glass façade. The stadium is designed to be the most sustainable in Europe and is surrounded by 22 acres of green space.

Proposal 2: ‘The Rings of Milano’ by Manica/Sportium consists of two iconic rings, interlocked and set apart in perfect balance, symbolizing the story of how two clubs, forever in opposition, and now united in their cause to preserve one of Milano’s most storied traditions. The new Stadium of Milano is carefully integrated into a broader masterplan development that will revitalize and transform San Siro into a park and entertainment district for the people of Milano to experience year-round.” [per AC Milan]
