AC Milan and Inter Milan met with Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala this week to discuss the Nuovo Stadio Milano project as both sides want to accelerate the approval to begin it’s development. Following the meeting some positive signals have emerged.

The mayor posted on Instagram to give an update saying:

“This morning I met the representatives of the clubs FC Internazionale and AC Milan at Palazzo Marino. I represented the position of the Council of Milan to the teams. There are three fundamental prerequisites for moving on to the executive phase of the stadium project.”

“The first is that the new stadium will substantially adhere to the lines and volumes contained in the feasibility study that has already been presented to the Administration. The second calls for a reconversion of the area of ​​the current San Siro in order to develop the project of the sport and entertainment district, in a green context as is the case in the dossier already submitted.”

“Regardless of the timing of construction of the new stadium, the opening ceremony of the 2026 Winter Olympics will take place in the current facility, as a tribute to its glorious history. Finally, third and last point, that the concessions of volumetric rights for urban development ancillary to the stadium do not derogate from what is allowed by the current PGT. The two clubs agreed with these proposals. At this point I believe that the Executive can proceed quickly to deliberate the public interest.”
