The new £1billion stadium for AC Milan and Inter Milan will have a maximum capacity of 65,000 to avoid empty seats.
‘The Cathedral’ by 2030 is set to replace the San Siro, which currently occupies 80000 fans.
But the plans and the location have yet to be finalised, despite both clubs planning to begin construction as early as January 2024.
The designs have been altered multiple times because of objections from the local authorities. As seen in the architect’s drawings, there isn’t yet agreement over whether the stadium will be an oval shape or square.
And it isn’t yet known whether the new stadium will go up next to the existing Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, which would then be demolished or moved to the Sesto San Giovanni area.
‘Our project is for a stadium of 60-65,000 seats,’ said Inter infrastructure development director Mark van Huuksloot as per Calcio e Finanza.
‘What we’ll try to do is fill it every game, which right now is not happening.
