Milan reveal R20-bllion stadium design

Serie A

After plans were made to demolish the iconic 80,000-seater San Siro, AC Milan and Internazionale have revealed incredible designs for a €1-billion (R20bn) revamp.

The famous stadium that was renamed after club legend Giuseppe Meazza in 1980, has been the home ground for AC since it's completion in 1927.

However, they have shared the facilities with fierce rivals Inter for more than half a century, which they will continue to do with the modern revamp.

A new sports park and entertainment area with a free-to-use running track, a cycle path, an outdoor gym, a skateboard park, a five-a-side pitch and sports museum have been included for locals.

A statement from both clubs said: "The new concepts designed by Populous and Manica/Sportium provide for the retention of a part of the current Giuseppe Meazza Stadium within a new retail and sports district that can be used 365 days a year, including about 106,000 square metres of green space.

"AC Milan and FC Internazionale Milano believe it is essential, especially in light of the current moment, to commence a project that represents more than one billion euros of private investment, which will generate thousands of new jobs and serve as a cornerstone for the future development of the city of Milan and Italian football."
