‘Allianz Arena to inspire Viola’

Fiorentina owner Diego Della Valle says the Viola will look to the model of the Allianz Arena as inspiration for their potential new stadium.

The 60-year-old also underlined the importance of any new ground serving as a pillar for the community in general as well as football.

“We want to build a ‘Fiorentina style’ stadium,” Della Valle told Radio24.

“Our intention is to do that and we are trying.

“Is Juve’s stadium a model to follow? Personally I’m looking at Bayern’s.

“If we manage to get a new stadium it must also provide a lot of services for the city and be very innovative.”
