AC Milan reveals further details of 'the most innovative stadium in the world'

Italian football club AC Milan has unveiled further details of its new stadium, which the club has described as “the most innovative in the world”.

Located in the Portello area of the city, the stadium has been designed by sports architects Arup and will have a capacity of 48,000 – half the size of its current San Siro stadium.

The club says the design team lead by Arup has studied 70 different stadia across the world before producing the plans.

To limit the venue’s impact on the surrounding area, the stadium will be built partly underground, resulting in the building only being 30m tall at its highest peak.

The design also includes a moveable roof to mitigate noise, while special attention will be dedicated to the social and environmental needs of the users.

As well as a new stadium, plans include a hotel, a sports college, restaurants, green areas and public art spaces.

The mixed-use project will take its inspiration from English stadiums, with the purpose of creating a multi-use venue which is operational on non-matchdays and can be reached by public transport.

Part of the club’s motivation to produce sustainable and environmentally considerate plans is stemmed from the fact that residents of Milan have previously opposed the club’s relocation plans.

A spokesperson for the club said: “We aim to build a sustainable and environmentally friendly stadium, easily accessible by public transport, that blends in with the local area and that can offer the city educational, recreational and social activities 7 days a week.

“Ours is mainly a cultural challenge and as is often the case abroad, the creation of an urban stadium favours the development of the area in which it is built.”

Exact plans and designs are to be confirmed, but the club intimated that it is looking to move into its new home by the beginning of the 2018-19 Serie A season.

AC Milan’s current home, San Siro, has a capacity of 80,000, but the club only averaged 40,061 spectators during the 2013-14 season. The club shares San Siro with its fierce rival, Inter.
