Serie A team AC Milan has announced plans to leave the San Siro and move to a new stadium with 70,000 seats.

A new 70,000-seat stadium will be constructed in the city’s south as part of AC Milan’s plans to leave their┬álegendary San Siro home.

The club in the San Donato suburb has submitted draft ideas to the city council.

Since the World Cup in 1990, the San Siro, the stadium for Milan, has not been updated.

They are joint tenants of the stadium with local rival Inter, and numerous attempts to modernize it have fallen short

Both clubs were forced to go elsewhere in August after a local heritage commission determined that the stadium has “cultural interest” and cannot be demolished

Aside from a stadium, AC Milan also plans to construct a clubhouse, hotel, shop, and museum.

Chairman Paolo Scaroni stated, “For more than four years, we have firmly commenced on a journey focused at providing our club with one of the top stadiums of the world, which is able to follow us into a winning and sustainable future.

This is a first step in the development of this process, but it also demonstrates our ownership’s dedication to ensuring AC Milan’s ongoing success both on and off the field.

The San Siro, or Stadio Giuseppe Meazza as it is officially known, is well-known across the world for its recognizable red girders and spiral towers, but the stadium’s interior facilities are rudimentary and in desperate need of reconstruction

Inter and AC Milan have been researching alternatives for a while because renovating the current stadium would be expensive.

The two teams revealed intentions to build a new 60,000-seat stadium on the current “The Cathedral” site in 2021. However, because to complaints, appeals, and objections, the project came to a standstill. The historic commission’s announcement last month effectively put an end to the possibility of demolishing the existing land.

Similar to AC Milan, Inter is now thinking about constructing its own stadium somewhere. A property in Assago, a tiny town south of Milan, is currently being evaluated.
