AC Milan and Inter Milan have received the public interest approval from the City Council of Milan to construct the Nuovo Stadio Milano to replace the historic Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro). This is a massive step forward for the clubs who have been in limbo regarding permissions since the coronavirus pandemic hit. The expected opening date for the new stadium is to be 2027.

According to the statement from the Council’s website:

“Adjustment of the territorial building index to the maximum required by the Standard of the Land Government Plan approved with reference to the ‘San Siro’ large urban function, equal to 0.35 m 2 / m 2. Reconfiguration of the area where the “Meazza” currently stands as a sports district, with extensive enhancement and increase in greenery.”

“On the basis of what has been established, updating of the Economic and Financial Plan in the subsequent planning phase. These are the conditions under which the Board has decided to confirm the declaration of public interest on the proposal relating to the Milan Stadium presented by the Milan AC SpA and Internazionale FC SpA football clubs. Conditions that will remain necessary to obtain subsequent acts of consent on the project.”
