San Siro has for years been the home of both Italian giants since 1947, but the venue’s days are over as plans to build a new ground have been put in place.
Both sides filed a request last year to jointly build a new 60,000-seat stadium on the same plot of land.
Although the heritage authority giving the go ahead doesn’t mean the demolition is confirmed, it is a huge step forward.
The new stadium is is set to be the launchpad for a £1.1 billion real estate plan in the local district.
Despite the name it has built for itself the plans for a new stadium was announced earlier in May, with both Serie A sides releasing a statement which read:
“The two new proposals are the result of a constructive dialogue with the Municipality and have been developed in accordance with the 16 conditions provided by the Municipality and the City Council in November 2019.
“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 (nearly double the current 56,000 square metres of green space on the current site).
