Milan Mayor Beppe Sala has made the sensational revelation that, if Inter Milan and AC Milan are to leave the San Siro, then Serie A side Monza have asked to use the stadium.
Speaking to reporters at the release of Monza CEO Adriano Galliani’s autobiography, via FCInterNews, Sala made the revelation.
Inter and Milan look set to leave the San Siro.
Exactly what they do next is not clear. Both clubs are reportedly considering alternative plans. The Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri could pursue a new project together, although reports suggest they’ll build stadiums apart.
What is inevitable, however, is that the two clubs don’t want to go on at the San Siro.
Despite the stadium being iconic for both clubs, neither view it as sufficient for their infrastructural and revenue needs.
Accordingly, it appears to be a question of when rather than if Inter and Milan relocate from the San Siro.
Sala: If Inter & AC Milan Leave San Siro, Monza Want It
Then, the question would become what the San Siro is used for.
It appears unlikely that the stadium would be demolished. An injunction against demolishing the iconic stadium would see to that.
However, without Inter and Milan playing in it, there would be big questions about the San Siro’s future.
Some have proposed using the San Siro as more of an events space.
The stadium could be converted to hold concerts and other events. This could be a way to put the structure to use and earn revenues without Inter and Milan playing and paying rent to the municipality.
However, according to Sala, there is a proposal that would see it continue to be used for football purposes.
Of Brianzoli CEO Galliani, Sala said that “Adriano called me, and asked me if Inter and AC Milan no longer want to stay at San Siro, can we use it?”
The Milan Mayor said that he responded positively.
Monza play in the Stadio Brianteo, named the U-Power Stadium for sponsorship purposes. The stadium is in the nearby city of Monza in Lombardy.
