AC Milan Reveal Plans and Pictures For Incredible New 48,000-Seater Stadium

AC Milan are planning to build a new 48,000-seater stadium – and have taken inspiration from English football grounds.

The Serie A giants submitted plans to redevelop the Portello area of Milan to create an innovative area which will include a hotel, a sports college, restaurants, children’s playground, green areas and spaces reserved to artists and citizens.

Arup – the designers of the project – have also created Bayern Munich’s new stadium and the new stadium in Beijing.

According to the club, the project “takes its inspiration from the English model: a stadium that can be reached by public transport and by doing so encouraging fans to be more environmentally aware. The entire project has a common theme which is sustainability”.

It’s expected to create around 1000 jobs with the stadium being half the size of the iconic San Siro – their current stadium.

But arguably the most interesting feature is the club’s promise of no noise – where the club says:

Thanks to the latest technology and sound-proof materials the noise will be reduced to a minimum to those on the outside.

As you can see from the pictures, the project is a vast one which could have major economic benefits to the city.

 

You can see the official video of the scale model of the new stadium here:

 

 

Milan plan to open the new area for the 2018/19 season.
