Heritage authority approves plans to demolish iconic San Siro Stadium

The iconic San Siro could soon be no more after the Heritage authority gave a go-ahead to bring the stadium down.

The stadium, co-owned by AC Miland and Inter Milan, is set to be replaced by a new 60,000-seater stadium. 

The two sides filed a request to bring down the facility, which was first opened in 1926. 

"AC Milan and FC Internazionale have shared a stadium in San Siro for more than 70 years," said AC Milan chairman Paolo Scaroni in 2019.

"The project's strength is the two club's commitment together for the new Milano stadium.

"It means increased investments and a common goal to give the city a sports and entertainment district which is alive all year round thanks to events involving both teams and creating jobs for more than 3,500 people."

According to an opinion from the authority, the stadium does not have any architectural significance that would prevent its demolition. 

The new stadium, which is part of a larger development plan around the arena, will cost an estimated £576m, and will take three years to complete.

The iconic stadium will however maintain certain aspects of its original structure, even though only a small remnant of the oldest part of the stadium is left.

This is as a result of numerous renovations over the years.
