Dare I say it already looks like it needs another refit.
Looks great from the outside and the roof is fantastic, but the seating looks 50 years old.

Someone in another thread suggested that the stadium was to be expanded further. Can you tell us anything about this Gruber?

i never red anything about it.
also 'cause is very hard to do it.
San Siro was built near the Hyppodrome Stadium in the 30's and and today, after the expansion of the 1989 from the eastern side of the Stadium and the Hyppodrome there are only 12,13 meters!
for this reason the third ring of the stadium was built only in the north, west and south sides.
another problem is the roof that is impossible to remove cause is linked with the towers of the third ring.

one months ago Milano became one of the candidate for the Olympic Games of the the 2016. and somene wrote something about an Olympic Stadium.
San Siro is a only-football Stadium. no Atlethic field.
there are other 2 Stadiums in Milano with an atlethic field but are both small.
the Brianteo (20.000) and the Arena Civica (18.000).
here you can see the San Siro and the Hyppodrome. too much close!

Isn't it true that no part of the stadium has ever been knocked down and replaced, it's just been continually added to?

the first stadium was partialy demolished in the end of 30's to expand it.
then, nothing was demolished. only added.
the second level in the end of the 40's; the third level and the roff in the 80's
the last renovation was did 2 years ago when Milan and Inter (they rented the stadium from Milano Municipality) build the Skyboxes that are rented for the entire championship for 1.100.000 Euros.
now there's a project to build a "fourth level", but...outside the stadium.
will be a ring of shops, restaurants, bars and pubs, football museum that will be built around the stadium.
ciao

I think seeing the San Siro on TV for the first time in 1990 is what actually sparked my interest in stadia around the world, so it's always going to be special to me...

It's a place I want to go to, I'd love to see Milan play Liverpool, 2 European greats, 2 of the best sets of fans who seem to have mutual respect and dislike teams in blue!

All are welcome Gruber! I know a lot of Liverpool based Inter fans (Italians).

The San Siro is truely one of footballs cathedrals and I'd go there for any event if I get the chance but I'd like to see Liverpool and Milan although Inter would do just fine!

i hope that will be for a match in next April...as a SF of Champions League: Inter-Liverpool!

....but Inter is a wanker team....with ad Idiot as owner.
11 trainers in 11 years.
more than 700 millions Euros spent for players in 11 years.
he sold Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo, Crespo, Peruzzi...
he didn't sold the old fat Vieri.

...in 11 years we won only the Loosers Cup (Uefa) and we arrived more time 2° in the championship and we lost an incredible numers of SF and F in all the cups, Italians and Europeans.

and Milan won...ALL!

HARD TIMES!
