Rubble continues to fall into the protective netting around the San Siro, due to vibration from crowds in the stadium.

Today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Il Giorno, via FCInterNews, report on continued issues with the state of the aging stadium.

It is no secret that the San Siro is not in the best of shape. Inter and AC Milan want to demolish the San Siro and build a new one in its place.

In the last year or so, the clubs have changed their plans to building new stadiums elsewhere. Mainly due to the stiff opposition they have faced against tearing down the iconic structure.

There are plans to renovate the San Siro. Because the San Siro will reportedly host the 2026 Winter Olympics opening ceremony.

And the structural issues at the stadium continue to manifest in worrying ways.

Detached Rubble Continues To Fall From San Siro

A major issue related to the condition of the San Siro has been the effect of vibration on the old stadium.

With its massive capacity and tendency to attract sell-out or near-sell-out attendances, the iconic stadium plays host to massive crowds.

And the stress of these crowds on the structure has been tangible.

In 2019, the decision was taken to reduce the capacity of the San Siro from around 78,000 to 75,000.

The reason for this reduction was to mitigate the risks of such large crowds to the stadium. Especially with regards to vibration the movement and noise such crowds produce.

And Inter and Milan have also intervened to reduce the hazards involved.

The crowd vibrations at the San Siro have caused pieces of rubble to detach from the third tier of the stadium. The derbis then falls to the ground.

Il Giorno note that the Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri, have invested around €160,000 in protective netting around the stadium in order to catch this debris.

And the newspaper report that Forza Italia party member Alessandro De Chirico has recently posted images of this phenomenon on social media, to highlight the woeful conditions of the stadium.
