The public debate around Inter and AC Milan’s plans to build a new stadium in Milan is set to begin this month, with the most contentious issue likely to be their proposal to demolish the San Siro.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the debate will culminate with ten meetings held in November, and that overcoming the opposition to tearing down the existing stadium is likely to be the clubs’ main hurdle.

The Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri have been very clear that they see building a new stadium as absolutely vital for their futures, but their plans have hardly been without controversy particularly as concerns the necessity of tearing down the San Siro in the clubs’ eyes.

The debate will formally begin within the next few days, led by mediator Andre Pillon, with ten public meetings in November giving citizens the chance to express their views on various aspects of the plans, and this will be decisive in determining how soon construction can begin if at all and on what terms.
