Inter, AC Milan Announce Plan To Demolish Iconic San Siro Stadium

Since 1925, one of Italy’s — and the world’s — most icon soccer stadiums, San Siro, has stood stall. After nearly 95 years, the iconic football arena appears to be heading into its final chapter.

A.C. Milan’s President, Paolo Scaroni, announced this week that both Inter and A.C. Milan have decided to destroy the iconic stadium within the next few years and build a new, joint stadium right next door. “Everything is proceeding,” Scaroni told La Gazzetta Dello Sport from Lausanne, where the Olympic Committee will on Monday select the host cities for the 2026 Winter Olympic Games. “We will build a new San Siro next to the old one in the same area of land. The old one will be knocked down and, in its place, there will be new constructions.”

San Siro has been classified as a Category four stadium by UEFA. San Siro has seen it all in its existence. From hosting six games during the 1990 World Cup to hosting four different European Cup finals in 1965, 1970, 2001 and 2016, respectively.

No timeframe has officially been announced yet for when the new San Siro will be built. However, with the 2026 Winter Olympics taking place in Northern Italy, it seems more than likely to assume that the plan will be to have the stadium built in time for then. According to reports, the timeframe that Scaroni has set as of now is for San Siro to officially be demolished by the end of 2022, four years before the Olympics.

“It’s an extremely complicated process,” Scaroni said. “It would be beautiful to have the Olympics’ opening ceremony in the new San Siro, but we are not certain.”
