[FONT=Arial,Helvetica,Geneva,Swiss,SunSans-Regular]San Siro opens for business[/FONT]
Monday 12 February, 2007
[FONT=Arial,Helvetica,Geneva,Swiss,SunSans-Regular]The Stadio Giuseppe Meazza should reopen to spectators in time for Milan’s next Champions League fixture, according to UEFA.

The stadium was not included in the list of stadia shown the green light by the Government last week, thus fuelling speculation that Inter and Milan had asked UEFA to play their home ties elsewhere.

However, work carried out on Friday night allowed 28 new turnstiles to be installed at San Siro, bringing the arena closer to the Legge Pisanu requirements, while the rest of the work should be completed within the next two weeks.

Rossoneri season ticket holders – numbering 37,297 fans – were therefore allowed access to the stadium for Sunday’s match with Livorno, an important test according to UEFA spokesman William Gaillard.

“What happened over the weekend was a good dress rehearsal and I anticipate that there will be a normal capacity crowd for the game between Milan and Celtic on March 7,” the official said in an interview with the BBC.

“It was played in front of season ticket holders only because they were trying the new turnstiles,” added the spokesman.

“Things went well, the turnstiles were installed successfully and, at this stage, we cannot foresee why the game will need to be moved to another location,” concluded Gaillard.

UEFA chief Michel Platini (pictured) held talks with the FIGC on Friday and discussions will continue throughout the week.

European football’s governing body is hoping to reach an agreement over the venue of the Euro 2008 qualifier with Scotland on March 28, as original hosts Bari also fails to meet the necessary safety requirements.

“I believe both Inter and Milan will play their Champions League matches at the San Siro, once more turnstiles are installed. That is what we requested and we hope we will play in front of our supporters,” declared Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani.

Inter are scheduled to host Valencia on February 21 and reports suggest that the stadium will be open to fans on that occasion as well, although possibly with a reduced capacity.

Not sure about flags. But flares have been banned for a while . The rules just weren't enforced. They will be from now on.

No official announcement yet. But from looks of things for the cl games San Siro will be open for all fans. The first game leg of Inter's might not be at full capacity yet but Milan's home leg vs Celtic will have full capacity. but in both legs you will be able to buy tickets again.

We have to hope Barca thrash Valencia... that way, Valencia will be scraping the floor with their morale when they meet us. In any case they are dreading facing us given the history of these clashes.

Valencia is looking strong, But Inter is looking stronger. I have never seen this team play as good as we have been playing lately and I see us coming out ontop in a scrappy dogfight. This one will go 12 rounds ladies and gentlemen, and the BESTteam will ultimatly come out on top.

No we won't. If they win or lose or draw the game vs barca will still take alot out of them and I believe they play on Sunday while Inter plays the game vs cagliari on saterday means we have 1 extra day to prepare.

Matches to go ahead in Milan

Thursday, 15 February 2007e-mailPrint
Details have been issued of the two forthcoming UEFA Champions League matches to take place in Milan, Italy.
Inter-Valencia
The first knockout round, first-leg match between FC Internazionale Milano and Valencia CF next Tuesday will be played at the Giuseppe Meazza stadium (kick-off 20.45CET).
Permitted capacity
UEFA was informed of the venue by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) after the latter had been involved in consultations with the Italian Ministry of Home Affairs in the wake of recent spectator incidents in Italy. The permitted capacity will be 36,000. This includes the five per cent reserved for visiting supporters, i.e. 1,800 tickets to be sold via the visiting team.
New measures
The FIGC told UEFA that the stadium was already in conformity with some of the measures provided for by Italian law, and that additional work was undertaken to fully comply with new measures that have come into force. However, some work must still be done before full capacity will be allowed at the venue.
Milan-Celtic
The UEFA Champions League tie involving AC Milan and Celtic FC will also be played at the Giuseppe Meazza stadium on 7 March (20.45CET) in front of a limited number of spectators, with the exact capacity still to be determined. However, the capacity will include 4,500 seats reserved for Scottish supporters.
