Inter and Milan agree to entirely demolish San Siro
The stadium, commonly known as the San Siro will be entirely demolished after the Rossoneri and Nerazzuri came to an agreement according to La Gazzetta dello Sport
The current venue has been refurbished a number of times but the clubs agreed to erect an entirely new facility which will also have an entertaining venue.
The teams have shared the stadium for over 70 years and Paolo Scaroni said before that the new facility will bring economic and cultural benefits.
The project's strength is the two club's commitment together for the new Milano stadium. It means increased investments and a common goal to give the city a sports and entertainment district which is alive all year round thanks to events involving both teams and creating jobs for more than 3,500 people.
The new stadium, dubbed "the Cathedral' will bring fans closer to action on the pitch. However, the seats will be reduced from 75,000 to 60,000.
