AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni has stressed that the club’s new stadium project is going in “the right direction”, and has set a possible opening date of 2028.
The Rossoneri have drawn up a new project focusing on the San Donato district and have already presented documents to the local authorities. A feasibility study is currently underway to assess the project, which will cover a total of 108,000 m². The club’s plans include a new 70,000-seat stadium, hotel, restaurants and other commercial areas, adding a number of additional revenue streams for the club. Speaking to the Trento Sports Festival via TMW, Scaroni spoke in detail about AC Milan’s new stadium project.
“The AC Milan stadium will be the most beautiful stadium in the world. I’ve been talking about stadiums for 5 years, now it’s a mission. Social networks now call me Paolo Stadioni. We will occupy an area that is unused for other purposes, but suitable for building a stadium. We’re moving in the right direction. The Red Bird fund is a great specialist in stadium construction, having built many stadiums in America. That’s why we owe it to ourselves and to our many fans around the world to build a wonderful one. The capacity will be 70,000 spectators. The stadium will also be available on days when there are no soccer events, and we will carry out all related activities such as restaurants and sports stores. We have left the world of hope, so I believe that the season in which we will play in the new stadium will be 2028,” said Scaroni.
