AC Milan: The Serie A club has revealed plans to relocate from the San Siro to a new 70,000-capacity stadium.

The club has submitted preliminary plans to the city council of San Donato.

The San Siro has been Milan’s stadium since 1926, but it hasn’t been updated since the World Cup in 1990.

As joint tenants, they share the stadium with local rivals Inter, and previous attempts to modernize it have failed.

A municipal heritage commission ruled in August that the ground has “cultural interest” and hence cannot be demolished, forcing both clubs to search elsewhere.

Aside from a stadium, AC Milan hopes to construct a club headquarters, hotel, club shop, and museum.

“For over four years, we have embarked with conviction on a journey aimed at giving our club one of the best stadiums of the world, which is able to accompany us into a victorious and sustainable future,” stated Paolo Scaroni, the chairman.

“This represents a preliminary step in the evolution of this process but, at the same time, it is further proof of our ownership’s commitment to guaranteeing continuous growth for AC Milan both on and off the pitch.”

The San Siro, or Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, is famous around the world for its characteristic red girders and spiral towers, but the stadium’s facilities are poor and in desperate need of refurbishment.

The expense of renovating the old stadium, however, would be prohibitively expensive, thus Inter and AC Milan have been investigating alternate proposals for several years.

In 2021, the two teams announced intentions to share a new 60,000-seater stadium on the existing ‘The Cathedral’ location. However, due to protests, appeals, and objections, the project was put on hold, with the heritage committee announcing last month that the existing ground would not be demolished.
