Spurs architects favourites for new San Siro

Populous, the firm behind Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium, is the favourite to design the proposed new San Siro.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Populous is winning a two-horse race with Italo-American architects Manica-Progetto CMR.

Populous boasts over 35 years of experience and more than 3,000 projects, including Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium and Benfica’s Estadio da Luz.

Manica-Progetto CMR, meanwhile, conceived Cagliari’s new stadium – scheduled to open next year.

In the meantime, La Gazzetta writes Milan and Inter must publicise their plans for the new venue on September 24.

The two clubs want to knock down the current San Siro and replace it with a 60,000-seater arena, as part of a €1.2bn project that also includes a new urban district.

Milan mayor Beppe Sala will then have until October 10 to sign off the plans.
