Yes it´s true, Internazionale and AC Milan have together bought San Siro from the town Milano. They will have to pay about 4.2 £ millions per year until 2030 for it.

And the plans are to build a huge centra with sovenier stores and gamerooms restaurants, athletic facilties and more.

And the Milan Vice President Adriano Galliani said that they will lower the ticket price now when the clubs gets all the ticket income.

Their goal will be 80.000 spectators in every game !! Impressive !!

FORZA INTER !!!

Thank god we did buy the San Siro,
its just a shame that AC will have to share it
with us from now 'till 2030.
Inter Milan needed to make money from their attendances
in matches and couldn't make much when the San Siro
was owned by Milan Council. Although 4.3 million a year
is a hefty price to pay for 30 years.
Equalling £129,000,000 paid by each club over the next 30
years.

The San Siro belongs to Inter not AC.
Thats why its called the Guiseppe Meazza San Siro
Guiseppe Meazza was an Inter legend.

FORZA INTER
FORZA SAN SIRO
FORZA RONALDO

Inter have bought the San Siro?I've never heard of this news,but i guess it's gotta be good news for Inter.About the $4.3 mil a year thing,it's pretty expensive,but the gates receipts should be able to cover it in the long run considering how Interfans love their club so much..:)

Forza Inter!

To the guy who says the San Siro belong to Inter because it was named after Giuseppe Meazza, read on:


The San Siro stadium is named after the saint in whose honour a small local church was dedicated. It was a gift from Piero Pirelli (AC Milan's club president from 1909-1929) to his beloved city of Milan.
The stadium was officially opened on September 19, 1926 after construction work that took 120 builders only thirteen and a half months to complete. The whole operation cost around 5 million lira, the equivalent of 3.5bn lira in today's money. The chief architects were Ulisse Stacchini (who also designed the Central Train Station) and Cugini.

The original San Siro was a typically English construction consisting of four grandstands with a maximum capacity of 35,000 spectators. 10,000 quintals of cement, 3,500 cubic metres of sand and 1,500 quintals of iron rods were used to build the stadium. 80 kilogrammes of chalk were used to mark out the pitch.

The first match played in the new stadium was a friendly against none other than local rivals Inter on September 19th 1926; it finished 6-3 to the visitors. The stadium hosted its first championship game on October 6th with Milan again losing (2-1 to Sampierdarenese) and its first international was held on February 20, 1927 when Italy drew 2-2 with Czechoslovakia. The San Siro was home solely to Milan until the end of 1945; Inter played their home games at the "Arena Napoleonica."

Football's very own "Scala" has had its fair share of refurbishments on the road to becoming the impressive structure it is today. The major changes took place between 1938 and 1939 with an increase in the capacity to 50,000 spectators, between 1954 and 1956 with the construction of the second tier and most recently in 1990 when a third tier was added.

In 1935 Milan bought the ground from the local council and three years later decided to enlarge it. Football was becoming a big spectator sport and the San Siro needed to increase its capacity. The development project was overseen by architect Rocca and chief engineer Calzolari. Utilising the same supporting structure a system of fitted steps were built with flights leading up with entry from outside.

The capacity was originally 150,000, but the city council issued a decree reducing it to 100,000 in 1952.The re-modernised stadium was officially opened on May 31, 1939 when Italy played out a 2-2 draw with England. Gate receipts were 1.2 million lira. Work on the new ground finished in 1939 at a cost of 5.1 million lira.

The second phase of expansion began in 1954 and officially finished twelve months later on October 26, 1955, raising the capacity to 85,000. Floodlights were installed for the first time in 1957 and ten years later an electronic scoreboard was added. In 1979 the floodlights were replaced with more modern ones and the second tier was repaired.

On March 3, 1980 a stone at the entrance to the ground was engraved with the name Giuseppe Meazza, one of Inter's greats, who had died the previous year. In 1986 the first tier was filled with numbered and colour-coded seats: red in the main stand, orange in the opposite stand, green behind the north goal and blue where the Milan hardcore fans gathered.

The latest phase of modernisation took place for the World Cup in 1990. The third tier was erected after many months of hard work; the official opening took place on April 25, 1990. Eleven outside towers (inside were flights of steps leading up to the next level) held the weight of the top tier and the framework of the roof. The roof was covered with translucent polycarbonate panels. The second and third tiers were also filled with numbered and colour-coded seats.

The pitch dimensions are 105 metres long by 68 metres wide and the stadium is situated near the racecourse, around 6 kilometres from the centre of Milan.

The San Siro is a symbol of Milan just as the Scala and Duomo are, but it draws its world fame not only from football as it has hosted a wide range of events throughout its history.

There was the World Junior Welterweight title re-match between Duilio Loi and Carlos Ortis on September 1, 1960 which drew a crowd of 53,043, of which 8,000 were ringside. The stadium was floodlit with the ring set up in the middle of the pitch. The gate receipts were 130 million lira. The Italian won the bout.

The stadium has also played host to a series of "historical" concerts. Bob Marley played his one and only Italian concert on a stage at the north end of the ground on June 27, 1980. The chance to see the Jamaican singer live drew a crowd of 90,000 - similar to that of a derby game. There was the same rush for tickets when Bruce Springsteen played there in 1985.

Three years ago, the main stand hosted an outdoor summer disco. Today, there is a museum behind the south stand (curva sud) that looks back over the history of both Milan and Inter, housing mementoes and souvenirs of personalities that have helped write the stadium's rich history.

Do AC Milan call it the "Giuseppe Meazza" or do they just call it the San Siro.

I would like to know what are Moratti's plan for the San Siro, i mean does he intend to lower the ticket prices like Galliani in order to have a full stadium every sunday (imagine 80 000 tiffosi screaming and chanting:FORZA MILAN!)Impressive!
Why is not Inter building their own stadium as the San Siro is OURS? Or at least Inter should pay us a fee for using it!I mean, for using someone elses's facilities you have to pay a fee!Come on Galliani!Make them pay! :):D :D :D :devil:

Anyways, good luck "cugini" in every competition you will be taking part!

MILANO, SIAMO NOI!
FORZA MAGICO MILAN!
