The iconic San Siro Stadium in Italy is set to be demolished. The stadium is the home ground of Italian giants, AC Milan, and archrivals, Inter Milan.

AC Milan chairman, Scaroni, spoke to a sport media outlet confirming that both clubs have agreed to replace their historic ‘Giuseppe Meazza’ stadium with a brand new state-of-the-art stadium close to the same location of the legendary stadium. The budget is said to he around £625 Million [pounds] and will be fully operational by 2022.

Scaroni announced:

Everything is in process, we will make a new San Siro together in the area. The old ground will be demolished, a new one will be erected in its stead.

The San Siro was built in 1926 as AC Milan’s official home ground but archrivals, Inter Milan, joined them in 1947. The San Siro has hosted three European cup finals in 1970, 2001 and 2016. It was later renamed Giuseppe Meazza in 1980, after a legendary striker who represented both clubs and also played for the Italian National team.
