Yeah Monza is basically a suburb of Milano in a sense.

Yeah the Metro already services Sesto San Giovanni. I guess the main issue will be that those Metro lines will probably cave under the demand of a derby for example, whereas the services around San Siro are well equipped for it.

I understand the hesitation to not go to sesto. San Siro just had it's metro line and stations put in for expo and even though the metro closes at midnight (actually more like 23:50) and strands everyone after a Champions League match, it's still the best way to access the stadium.
Yeah what is that about. Anytime I've been over we've been stranded after a late night game. My nephew will be going with my bro on the new year. Nephew is 7,so he can't walk as far. Do people have to leave early to get the metro or what's their best way of getting home?

If you leave right after the game you can usually catch it. If you do what alot of people do and hang around and have a drink and buy a shirt for your nephew you'll miss it. It's typical Italy, it just doesn't cross their mind that 80k people getting on a metro may take longer than 45 mins.

Thanks. I imagine they will probably hang about and take pictures etc. Will tell him to get there early to do that instead.

I saw this on a Milan fansite and i thought it would be useful to share it on the forum


Everything you need to know about Sesto as Milan keep stadium plan B alive​


The public debate has ended for AC Milan and Inter’s stadium project in the San Siro area, but the clubs are still somewhat in the dark with regard to the outcome. Meanwhile, Sesto San Giovanni is still an option.

The Rossoneri are tired of the bureaucratic delays – courtesy of politicians, conservative groups and many unreasonable laws – and are thus considering building the stadium in Sesto San Giovanni. More specifically, where the former steelworks were located, also known as the Falck area.

This area is privately owned and the Sesto council is more than happy to welcome both Milan and Inter, meaning it could be a quick turnover from a decision to the start of building. A factor that is very appealing to Milan and RedBird.

Having said all of this, talks are still ongoing for the San Siro project and a public debate has now been initiated. This hypothesis shouldn’t be ruled out, therefore, but Milan now have a backup plan to turn to even in the near future.

So, where is Sesto San Giovanni located? It’s north of the inner city and that’s why it’s not under the jurisdiction of the Milan council, but rather its own. It’s not far away from the city, though.

Thanks to the Metro connection, as line No.1 has Sesto as its final station, you can travel from the Duomo to Sesto in just 18 minutes. There is also a railway station, which can take you to Garibaldi in a mere 13 minutes. Furthermore, Linate Airport is 14 minutes away by car.

To put this in perspective, it takes around 20 minutes to get from the metro station at San Siro to the Duomo. Of course, some might feel hard done by the potential change, depending on where they currently live and the distance to San Siro. In any case, transportation to Sesto San Giovanni is not a problem.

Over the last few years, several investments have been made to modernise Sesto and the council has decided to focus heavily on greenery. More details on this can be found on the official website but, for example, a large green park near the Falck area has been designed and is in the works.

It’s an important path that the council has chosen, given that especially the steelworks area looked (and still looks to some extent) very unappealing previously. Constructing a world-class football stadium is thus something that the council welcomes a lot, given that it will continue their project and also attract more people.

For Milan, as said, it’s an area that appeals to them given the ability to build a stadium without any delays. And they might do it without their city rivals Inter, getting a home for themselves for many years to come. The design in the pic above, by the way, is just an initial one to gauge the possibility of the area.

Milan City Council Ask Inter & AC Milan To Add More Green Space & Modify Layout In New Stadium Plans, Italian Media Report​


The city council of Milan have made some requests to Inter and AC Milan to make changes in their new stadium plans.

This according to the Milan-based edition of La Repubblia, via FCInter1908, who report that the revisions asked for by the council concern adding more green space and also changing the layout of the plans for the area.

Inter and Milan are waiting to see if they can receive approval from the city council and begin construction on a new stadium in Milan.

In the meantime, the council has heard the recommendations of Andrea Pillon, who had been the coordinator for the public debate concerning the plans which concluded last month.

Based on these, the council has asked the clubs to make some changes.

One of the key themes of the council’s request involves the addition of more green space, and changes with respect to rules around carbon neutrality.

Meanwhile, the council has also asked that the layout be changed so that the stadium is moved as far away from a row of houses as possible.

This stadium is never going to be built. Europe is committing collective suicide over all of this carbon neutral green obsession. What an embarrassment.

It’s a balance really, you could get the stadium signed off quicker without the extra green stuff or make the stadium greener so we can all enjoy the stadium longer and try not to kill the planet as quickly.

Given we’re close to, if not already in ,another banter era I’m fine with delays to the stadium till we get new owners that aren’t clowns. Won’t be going to Milano to see us play anytime soon anyways 🤣😂

That sounds some veiled threat to the city council.

They want extra green, in their bank accounts

Letizia Moratti: ‘Inter could stay at San Siro and Milan leave’
The two Milanese clubs have been working hard to push for a new stadium and have decided to move forward with the Populous ‘Cathedral’ design, one which has divided fans. Public debates are now ongoing and Milan and Inter are both stuck in the cogs of Italian bureaucracy, slowing progress to a crawl.

Speaking to Il Fatto Quotidiano, Moratti revealed an interesting proposal surrounding Milan and Inter’s quest for a new stadium.

I know there is a proposal to leave Inter at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza and for Milan to go to Sesto San Giovanni. Maybe that would put everyone in agreement!”

The two Milanese clubs hoped to demolish the existing Stadio Giuseppe Meazza to make space for their new stadium, something that has caused divisions amongst supporters and locals, with some calling the stadium a symbol of both the city and Italian football as a whole.

The stadium in San Siro was originally built in 1925-26 and the two clubs have shared it since 1947. It is owned by the Municipality of Milan.

:yao:

MILAN CEO SCARONI: ‘IF NOT IN SAN SIRO, WE’LL BUILD NEW STADIUM ALONE’​

Speaking at a book presentation in Milan, Scaroni confirmed the Rossoneri’s willingness to build the new stadium on their own should it not be approved in the San Siro area of the city.

We are carrying out three projects in parallel. One is for Sesto San Giovanni and another one I won’t say, it’s under wraps still. If it’ll not be San Siro, Milan are willing to do it alone.
“Let’s not give up the fight, I assure you that Milan will have the new stadium. The first one that gets unblocked we will jump at it.
“Milan will collect €40m for the stadium. How do we compete internationally with such low revenues? That is why we absolutely want the new stadium.”

The Rossoneri CEO then touched on the club’s other sources of revenue.
“We generate €60 million in cash, we are in good shape. The brand continues to grow. We are the most famous Italian club in the world.
“We get paid very little for sponsorships because the league is considered second tier.”

Did Zhang pull the plug?
