Inter & AC Milan Considering Building New Stadium In Sesto San Giovanni Amid Delays To San Siro Plans, Italian Media Report

Inter and AC Milan are beginning to seriously consider the option of building their new stadium in the Sesto San Giovanni area rather than in the San Siro area.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the mounting delays to the clubs’ plans for the San Siro area are making the Sesto San Giovanni option look increasingly plausible.

The Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri have been in agreement about the best course of action since October 2017, having submitted their memorandum to the city in 2018 and then a feasibility study in 2019 which outlined the plan to demolish the San Siro to make way for the new stadium.

Important breakthroughs came last year after the clubs secured the approval of the city council following municipal elections in October and then settled on architectural design firm Populous to design the project.

These developments set a timeline in motion which the clubs have hoped would see the new stadium ready for the start of the 2026-27 season.

However, they have faced continued delays in the form of public debate, and whilst Mayor Giuseppe Sala is determined to go ahead with the project, there is opposition from city council members which could make the process protracted.

For this reason, the clubs are more and more convinced that they may have to turn to their backup option of Sesto San Giovanni if they are to get the stadium constructed when they want it done.
