AC Milan And Inter To Build A New Stadium For €1.2 Billion

July 11, 2019

A.C. Milan S.p.A. (AC Milan) and F.C. Internazionale Milano S.p.A. (FC Internazionale) filed with the Municipality of Milan the “Technical and Economic Feasibility Study” for the new Milan stadium and its multifunctional district.

The total cost is expected to foresees private investments of over 1.2 billion euros. The project aims at enhancing the San Siro area with the realization of:

– a new modern stadium, of approx. 60.000 seats, in the area adjacent to the existing Meazza (owned by the City of Milan and currently given in concession to the two Clubs)

– a multifunctional district in the area where the Meazza currently stands, dedicated to sports, entertainment, and shopping, that will become a vibrant destination for citizens, fans and tourists 365-days/year, creating jobs for over 3,500 people.

The request made today by AC Milan and FC Internazionale to the public administration aims at obtaining the declaration of public interest from the Municipality of Milan. Only thereafter, the Clubs will proceed with the filing of a definitive plan, which will include all architectural components. In this regard, a competitive process will be launched to select architects among the best international firms specializing in the design of sporting infrastructure.

The Clubs also aim at establishing an open and constructive dialogue with the local community, with the idea of optimizing the project by taking into consideration their needs and aspirations for the San Siro area.

The choice of AC Milan and FC Internazionale is based on a careful and in-depth analysis, carried out over the last few months, of the different available options (including the restructuring of the current Meazza stadium). It is inspired by the best benchmarks of international stadia and entertainment districts (almost all made ex-novo) around the world, as well as by Italian culture and the unique character of the City of Milan.

This analysis shows that the construction of a new building is from all perspectives the best possible solution both for the Clubs and for the city of Milan: it guarantees the best user experience, sustainability, adequate security, safety and accessibility standards, and honours Milan’s reputation for innovation and internationalization.

The Feasibility Project explains in detail the reasons why the construction of the new stadium is preferred to the renovation of the Meazza: the current structure presents a series of technical issues, of which the solution would have required a complete refurbishment, with enormous execution risks, possible cost overruns and unpredictable complications.

In addition, there would have been organizational issues linked to the simultaneous management of football matches, longer construction timings, revenue loss connected to the temporary reduction of the available capacity to even less than 45,000 seats, safety concerns and the need to hold home matches outside the city of Milan.
