Milan get stadium go-ahead

Milan have officially won the right to build their new stadium in the Portello area of the city – next to Casa Milan.

The project had been in the works for six months, but this evening the Fondazione Fiera Milano finally gave the all-clear.

The Rossoneri hope to have their new purpose-built 48,000-seater arena ready to open for the 2018-19 season.

This Portello area was considered particularly precious because it is facing the high-tech Casa Milan headquarters built recently.

Milan still need clearance from the Milan Council, but this hurdle was considered the most difficult to overcome.

The club out-bid another group trying to rent the land by offering €3.95m per year for 50 years.
