<p>Currently, rivals Inter Milan and the heavyweights of northern Italy share the San Siro Stadium to the northwest of the city.</p>
<p>Currently, 15 kilometers from San Siro, in the southeast of the city in the San Donato municipality, AC Milan has purchased a 256,000 square meter land.</p>
<p>The Italian news reports that next week will mark a significant turning point in negotiations between the San Donato municipality and the local populace in anticipation of the issuance of a potential construction permit.</p>
<p>Without giving a timeframe for when the 70,000-seat stadium may open, AC Milan said in September of last year that it has set its eyes on San Donato.</p>
<p>San Siro, officially known as the Giuseppe-Meazza Stadium, is a famous 80,000-seat stadium that was constructed in 1926. Despite being updated for the 1990 World Cup, it no longer serves the demands of teams.</p>
<p>Initially, the goal of both teams was to demolish the San Siro and construct a new stadium next to it, which they would share alongside a sports, entertainment, and retail district.</p>
<p>However, when authorities determined that the city-owned San Siro was of “cultural interest,” this collaborative endeavor was shelved.</p>
<p>The Milan-Cortina d’Ampezzo Winter Olympics opening ceremony is scheduled for San Siro in 2026.</p>
