Mayor Sala talked about the proposed new stadium in Milan

Mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala commented the proposed new stadium for the Milan clubs Inter and AC Milan, stating that the project could move forward but that the San Siro is still an important symbol of history and sentimentality, reports Sempre Inter.

An innovative structure with about 60,000 seats with the highest technological, sustainable and safety standards, as delivering a fantastic family football experience will be a shared commitment by both Clubs. It will become a sports & entertainment district not just limited to match days. This will reaffirm the sports vocation of the city, at the same time providing its citizens with an exclusive sports offer.

Mayor Beppe Sala explained for Sky Sport that the key conditions needing to be met for the proposal to move forward concern the real estate developments around the stadium: “The potential problem is not with the stadium itself, but with the real estate developments surrounding it. If conditions are right, we will move forward. In modern football, new stadiums can help teams who are experiencing financial difficulties.”

Mayor Sala added: “San Siro will be the inaugural venue for the Winter Olympics in 2026, this is written in the application dossier. Should there be a new stadium in its place there would be no problem with the IOC Organizing Committee, but this would be an extraordinary venue to inaugurate the 2026 Games. It represents the occasions of many victories, even if I understand the needs of the teams.”
