Milan Mayor Giuseppe Meazza will meet with representatives of the “Yes to Preserve Meazza” movement opposed to the demolition of the San Siro soon.
This according to Italian football finance news outlet Calcio e Finanza, who report that the Mayor has organized the meeting with Inter and AC Milan as well as the representatives of the movement.
The Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri have been pressing ahead with their plans to construct a new stadium in Milan, a key part of which is the proposed demolition of the existing San Siro to make room for the new structure.
This aspect of the plan has been the source of controversy within the city, and a number of public figures opposed to tearing down the San Siro have formed the “Yes to Preserve Meazza” committee aimed at keeping the stadium standing.
Spokesperson for the movement Luigi Corbani told Calcio e Finanza that the Mayor is now planning a summit with both clubs as well as members of the committee to try and reconcile the opposing interests.
It remains to be seen how this meeting will affect the progress of the project, with the club hoping to begin construction as soon as possible on a new stadium that they feel will be vital to modernizing their infrastructure and increasing revenues.
