MILAN - New AC Milan Stadium (48,000)

This can have its own thread now, especially as we're getting regular updates on the new stadium:

Quote:
AC Milan have confirmed the details of their planned new 42,000 seat stadium with construction work scheduled to begin in 2016.

The innovative nature of Barbara Berlusconi’s project has convinced the Rossoneri’s sponsor Emirates to give their backing to the project and invest considerably.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the new stadium will be located in the Portello area of the city, in an area of 60,000 square metres opposite the club’s headquarters at Casa Milan.

The Casa Milan architect Fabio Novembre has designed a stadium that contains 42,000 seats and will be built 15 metres underground in order to comply with planning regulations so that it will not exceed existing local buildings in terms of height.

The underground nature of the construction will also have a soundproofing effect and prevent noise from disturbing the local area while also increasing the acoustics inside the stadium in an attempt to improve the atmosphere.

The ambition shown by the plans has persuaded Emirates to continue with their sponsorship of AC Milan and it is expected the airline will purchase the stadium’s naming rights.

AC Milan now have to arrange a financing plan for the new stadium but they aim to start construction by 2016 and open their new home between 2019 or 2020.

Someone on Facebook said this was by a company vying to design the new AC Milan stadium, but their concept failed to make the final selection process:

42K?

Far too small for Milan.

Not a fan of all those wavy tiers, either. What's the point of them? Design over function. Just wrong. Milan deserves better.

That's a failed concept, with the actual design likely to be revealed next year. Hopefully the main design has the ability to be easily expanded.

No it wasn't. This was a design created b two young architects and AC Milan fans, Marco Gualandris and Andrea Piatti. Its an unofficial design and i dont think its realistic.

A great club like AC Milan should be able to attract a lot more people on a weekly basis for their home games. So the possibility to expand the stadium should definitely taken into account.

Average attendances according to worldfootball.net:

2000/2001 = 52,723
2001/2002 = 58,446
2002/2003 = 61,528
2003/2004 = 63,473
2004/2005 = 63,521
2005/2006 = 59,449
2006/2007 = 46,292
2007/2008 = 56,906
2008/2009 = 59,731
2009/2010 = 42,951
2010/2011 = 53,916
2011/2012 = 49,359
2012/2013 = 43,651
2013/2014 = 40,061
2014/2015 so far = 47,611

Seems AC Milan fans could well be in for a price hike regarding ticket prices at the new stadium, 'cause the majority of those average attendances are above 42,000.

Absolute lunacy to build a new stadium with a capacity that is less than your average attendance in recent decades! Really going to be something Milan will regret in a big big way in years to come if they do not reconsider and build a 70,000 seater ground.

Or it's a sly move by keeping the demand higher than the capacity in order to increase ticket prices. The NFL are well known for it, but it's being adopted here in Europe, too.

Go straight for a 52.000 stadium. They can easily fill 52.000 each match. That way people would hurry up byuing tickets like in Turin with 41.254 seats. 60.000 is too big - 42.000 not enough and they would loose money.
People don't go to San Siro because of a half empty stadium. A new more intimate sold out stadium would attract 52.000 tifosi.

Milan never confirmed any details regarding new stadium.The capacity, architect, location, even naming right, at this moment, are all rumor. Not saying that GdS made up their report, maybe there's some truth in it, maybe the rumor will become reality, but this stadium rumor is more or less the same with every transfer rumor they wrote on their paper. It could be true, it could be wrong. The only thing that's confirmed is that the stadium plan is in advanced stage.

It will only work if AC have the money, and since they had to wait for Emirates Airlines to sign a stadium naming rights deal before even putting this part out to the media, I'm guessing they are rather short of cash and a 42k stadium is all they could afford. Still will be far better than paying rent and making no cash at the San Siro.

Building a 55.000 stadium instead of a 42.000 stadium might be 10-15 per cent more expensive. Those money would be earned in a season or two.
I am pretty sure that for the majority of the matches they would be able to sell more than 42.000 matches.

The supposed planned Inter stadium that Moratti was working on up to 2013 was supposed to have either 42 or 46,000 as the planned capacity.
Milan are copying Juve to the exact number almost.
The 7 times champions of Europe will have a ground smaller than a third of the premier league in 5 years time. The new ground is supposed to help Milan compete financially with the rest of Europe, but it looks like Italian teams will be left behind if they stay this small. In 5 years we could have only the stadio olimpico at > 60,000 in Italy and less than 5 grounds over 50,000.

Barbara Berlusconi idea is just funny. Seems that she want to live in her magic world.
- A new stadium cannot be built in Portello. The district is re-born to host other activities; a stadium isn't among those for sure. Above all, a stadium isn't like a residential tower: it need other spaces as well as must follow other important urban planning rules. Barbara Berlusconi can't change what she want. I'm curious to see how this City Government can give to AC Milan the final approbation.
- If her idea was a property stadium near the new HQ, Portello needed a completely different design, but it's too late.
- A new stadium near San Siro is a mad idea: in the same metro line, both are divided by just 3 stops. It could create some problems in congestion terms.
- Lombardy Region President said there is a vision plan to create a sort of village with new stadium and other sports facilities in Expo 2015 area. He isn't happy of her idea. In addition, Lombardy Region is one the shareholders of Ente Fiera (the owner society of the land where the stadium should be constructed). I'm not able to see how Lombardy Region can say OK, and sell the land to AC Milan.
- Citizens of Portello district are already opposed: they suggested a more appropriate area
- Most part of AC Milan supporters want at least a 50,000 capacity stadium
