Inter and AC Milan are ready to progress with the project to rebuild the Stadio San Siro after receiving clarification from Mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala.

As reported by, the two clubs had expressed concerns about delays to the project, as they seek to secure a new stadium and move away from the existing San Siro ground.

With the process becoming increasingly lengthy and little progress seemingly being made, there were suggestions that the clubs would look elsewhere, but following a letter sent by Sala to Undersecretary for Culture Vittorio Sgarbi, reassuring him of the viability of the project, the clubs have publicly backed it.

“The Mayor’s initiative clarifies that all the bodies in charge had already expressed their opinion in recent years to proceed with the redevelopment of the entire San Siro area and the design of the new stadium,” a statement by Inter and Milan read.

“We await the end of the public debate and then continue smoothly in the process underway with the final design and with certain times for the start of the works.”

The existing plans would see the San Siro demolished and a new stadium built in it’s place, to be shared by Inter and Milan, and it is hoped that the new ground will be ready for the 2027-28 season.
