Milan got some good news as they got a first yes for the construction of the new stadium in the area where they wanted it. A final answer is expected to arrive to Casa Milan within 6 weeks.
The past few days were very difficult for the Milan environment with the intense tension between Filippo Inzaghi and his players but today (Monday) the club finally has a reason to smile as their plans for the new stadium, which will probably have the capacity of around 50k, “got a boost.”
As written in a statement on Milan’s official website today: “Earlier this year, AC Milan unveiled plans for a new state of the art stadium to be constructed near the club’s headquarters Casa Milan which is situated in the Portello-Fiera area of the city.
“Today, those stadium plans received a boost as the Fondazione Fiera Milano, which owns the land and has been assessing the bids to redevelop the former world fair site, communicated that Milan has been identified as the main bid to re-develop the area amongst the other bids.
“The next step will be to verify that all the conditions can be met to carry out the project. A decision will be communicated in no more than 6 weeks.” In a season with very few successes in the football area, CEO Barbara can be pleased with her work, also on this project, which is important for Milan’s future.
Milan describe their plan as “a mission for the new Milan stadium: easily accessible by public transport, able to enhance the Portello area of the city and offering educational, recreational and social activities to the city of Milan.” You can watch the presentation video below to get a feel of what it’ll be like.
