Milan's historic San Siro to close

Milan giants plan to leave San Siro

Tuesday 25th June 2019

Inter and AC Milan are to leave the San Siro. Club officials have confirmed plans for a new stadium to be built on land adjacent to the current ground.

It’s no secret that the Milan giants were looking to leave due to the San Siro’s relatively poor facilities for fans. Officials in Italy estimate that the old ground (official name: Giuseppe Meazza Stadium) will close at the end of the 2021/2022 season… that seems a little quick given the fact that we haven’t seen any designs for the new stadium, and planning permission hasn’t even been applied for yet, never mind been granted.

The San Siro is our most popular ground in Italy - more than 10,000 footballgroundmap.com members have ticked it off. That's almost twice as many as Italy's 2nd most popular stadium (the Stadio Olimpico in Rome)

Whilst we don’t have any renderings, we do know that the new stadium will be built on the San Siro’s current car parks, meaning that the old ground will remain open throughout the construction work. The new ground will also be set below street level and will be modeled on Atlanta United's new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the USA, according to reports.

Reports also estimate the cost to be around £690m and capacity will be reduced to just 60,000 - 20,000 less than the current San Siro.
