Official: San Siro to be renovated

The City Council of Milan has confirmed that San Siro will undergo ‘extraordinary’ renovation work, to be completed by 2020.

Inter and Milan have long been linked with new stadia, but it appears both clubs will be tied to San Siro for at least the next two years.

“The technical committee for the use and management of the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium and related services have approved the annual routine maintenance programme and plan of work for extraordinary maintenance and innovation of the stadium, to be carried out by June 2020,” read a Press release.

“It confirmed the annual relaying of the pitch, plus other procedures, such as the lighting of entrances, a new operations centre for police, sealing of the first tier, redevelopment of electrical systems and rebuilding the first-tier toilets.

“The stands and executive boxes in the first tier will be modernised, plus there will be a new lounge for the club museum, increase in commercial spaces, construction in the red stand’s first tier of a fourth executive box and new media areas, as well as the renovation of the square outside the stadium.”
