San Siro’s capacity cut amid safety fears

Tuesday 6th August 2019

Milan's giant San Siro stadium has had its capacity cut for the 2019/2020 season. 6 sections of the third tier will be closed, reducing capacity by 2,350.

The move comes amid fans' concerns after some parts of the stadium appeared to oscillate in some matches last season, particularly in the Inter vs Atlanta match in April.

Local authorities have checked the structure and are happy that it is safe. The closing of the 6 sections is reported only to reassure the public and prevent any panic.

The closure will take the San Siro's capacity down to around 77,800. It's not expected to cause too many problems as both Inter and AC averaged well under capacity last season (58,789 for Inter and 54,651 for AC).

However, the news may add more impetus to the plans to build a new stadium in Milan.
