Milan Mayor Beppe Sala feels that whenever the new stadium for Inter and AC Milan is completed, it will not likely be in time for the 2026 Winter Olympic Games.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport outside the closing ceremonies of the 2022 Olympic Games, the Mayor stated that he expects the San Siro to be the venue for the 2026 opening ceremonies.

The Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri are pressing ahead with their plans to build a new stadium in Milan, which they see as necessary to modernizing their infrastructure and increasing revenues.

The exact timeline for completion of the stadium is not yet clear, with construction not yet started and further political and bureaucratic hurdles potentially on the horizon, but 2026 has been targeted for the stadium to be done.

The clubs will hope to get the stadium in use for their matches as soon as they can, though as far as the 2026 Winter Olympics, it does not look like it will be used according to Sala.

“This is not a relevant matter when it comes to the Olympics, it’s importance is only to do with football,” Sala said of the new stadium, “given the complicated timing involved.”

“I really don’t think that the new stadium will be built in time for the Games,” he made clear. “So the opening ceremony will almost certainly be at the Meazza.”
