Mayor Warns Inter & AC Milan: “San Siro Needs To Host Winter Olympic Opening Ceremony”

The mayor of Milan today warned Inter and Milan it would be difficult not to hold the opening ceremony of the 2026 Winter Olympics at San Siro.

The clubs presented a 750-page Technical and Economic Feasibility Study to the council on Wednesday, outlining their plans to knock down the existing stadium and build a new one adjacent to it.

Sala admitted he had not seen the plans yet but reminded reporters how Milan had committed to using San Siro for the games’ opening ceremony.

“That was a promise we made in our Olympic bid and I think it will be difficult not to keep it,” Sala said.

“It’s clear I can’t ignore the clubs’ requests, but in theory there is also the possibility that Inter and Milan could move to Sesto San Giovanni to build their stadium.

“We need to start up a dialogue between the parties on this issue, but it could happen if we completely opposed the plan to redo San Siro before 2026.”

Sala also clarified reports suggesting he had come out in favour of knocking down San Siro.

“I never said I was convinced the city of Milan needed a new stadium,” he added.

“What I said was that if Inter and Milan make a proposal then it will be difficult for me to turn my back on it.”
