According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Stadio Meazza will be completely demolished as part of the project for the new stadium that will be shared by both Milan clubs Inter Milan and AC Milan. The new stadium is expected to be ready for use by the 2027–2028 football season.
The report revealed that both clubs have agreed to completely tear down their historical home stadium.
At the end of the year 2021, the two opposing parties in Milan gave their approval to the project known as “The Cathedral,” which has now been made public.
Within the next month, there will be ten meetings during which the two clubs will explain their plans for the stadium as well as the requalification of the area surrounding San Siro.
The Cathedral should be built just a few hundred meters away from the Stadio Meazza, and it can be recalled that the initial plan for the project called for only a portion of the existing stadium to be demolished.
However, to reduce the amount of cement that is used in the area and to present a project that is more sustainable and ‘greener,’ the two clubs have come to an agreement that when the new stadium is ready in 2027 or 2028, San Siro will be demolished.
Meanwhile, Sesto San Giovanni is still an option for Milan and Inter, who could move just outside Milan if the Cathedral project is not approved after the public debate or if it will take too long to begin work.
Regardless, the construction of a new stadium in the area of San Siro remains the clubs’ top priority.
