Italy gives nod to San Siro de­mo­li­tion

Hindustan Times (Jalandhar) - - HTSPORT -

MI­LAN: Italy’s her­itage author­ity raised no ob­jec­tions to tear­ing down Mi­lan’s 1920s-era San Siro, re­mov­ing a ma­jor ob­sta­cle to the city’s top-flight foot­ball clubs plans to re­place it with a new sta­dium. Se­rie A clubs AC Mi­lan and In­ter Mi­lan last year filed a re­quest to build a new 60,000-seater sta­dium in the San Siro area. The new sta­dium is the key el­e­ment in a wider €1.2 bil­lion real es­tate plan for the dis­trict, which in­cludes de­mol­ish­ing al­most all of the his­toric arena. Although ap­proval from her­itage author­i­ties is not the fi­nal de­ci­sion, it is a key step to­wards im­ple­ment­ing the plan.
