History and description

However, the team struggled to draw large crowds, partly due to its location and partly due to Italy's ban on professional football. In 1926, Pirelli offered the property on which the San Siro stands to Milan, with an agreement that it would be used primarily for rugby. However, the offer was rejected and Pirelli decided to build the stadium himself. The design was based on the Wembley Stadium in London, but with a smaller capacity. Stadio Guiseppe Meazza was a project of AC Milan president Piero Pirelli. In 1926, he offered the property on which the San Siro stands to Milan, with an agreement that it would be used primarily for Rugby. However, the offer was rejected and he decided to build the stadium himself. The design was based on Wembley Stadium in London but with a smaller capacity. The club grew increasingly frustrated with the small ground, and so they hired an architect to design a brand new stadium.

Over time, the stadium has been renovated and expanded many times, most recently in 2009. The current capacity is 81,018 spectators. The Stadio San Siro officially opened on September 19, 1926 with a friendly between Milan and Inter. The stadium originally consisted of four separate stands and could hold 35,000 spectators. Over time, the stadium has been renovated and expanded many times, most recently in 2009. The current capacity is 81,018 spectators.

The city of Milan originally owned San Siro, but sold it to AC Milan in 1935. Due to the club's increasing popularity, the stadium was later enlarged.

A stadium with a capacity of 150,000 people was initially planned, but this was later reduced to an open-air stadium with one fully enclosed tier. The redeveloped San Siro opened in 1939 and consisted of one fully enclosed tier.

Until 1945, Milan had been the only occupant of San Siro stadium. But then Inter, a rival team, moved in and took up residence there.

In 1955, San Siro got expanded further when a second tier was built on top of the first one, which resulted in a capacity of about 85,000 places.

In the following decades, two European Cup finals were hosted at San Siro: the first in 1965 between Inter and Benfica (1-0), and the second in 1970 between Feyenoord and Celtic (2-1).

The stadium had earlier been ignored as a playing venue for the 1968 European Championships, but it was selected for Euro 1980. At the same time, it was officially renamed Stadio Guiseppe Meazza, in honor of the former player of both Inter and Milan.

During the 1980 European championships, three first round group matches were hosted at San Siro.

They created a new stadium from scratch, using cutting edge technology and design. Soon after Italy was awarded the 1990 World Cup, it became clear that San Siro needed a major upgrade. The option of building a new stadium was contemplated, but architects Ragazzi, Hoffer, and Finzi instead chose for an ambitious redevelopment plan. They created a new stadium from scratch by using cutting edge technology and design.

Construction of a third tier and roof covering all seats resulted in a capacity of 85,700 seats. Eleven cylindrical concrete towers were also constructed around the stadium to support the extra tier and roof.

The stadium was refurbished later on, and its capacity was reduced a bit because of UEFA safety regulations. In 2001, it hosted the Champions League final between Bayern München and Valencia (1-1) and in 2016 the final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid (1-1).

In 2012, Inter announced plans to build a new stadium, but later changed their mind and decided to renovate San Siro. However, this move fell through in 2015 and there are currently no plans for either club to build a new stadium.

Useful Internet links

The AC Milan website, Inter.it, FC Internazionale website, SanSiro.net, and Turismo.milano.it are all official websites of AC Milan, FC Internazionale, San Siro Stadium, and Tourism portal of the city of Milan respectively. I submitted a payment for my son and then tried to get a refund afterwards. I spoke with 4 different people, but nothing happened. I'm very disappointed that my son had to return home without any pictures. He's a fan of your team and the stadium, so he would be able to answer any questions you have about it.

Very regrettable to say that just to be allowed into the stadium to take a few pictures with one of your employees, I was told I would have to pay $16 for my son and also purchase a ticket for me, since I had to go with him. In fact, I actually paid for him and then asked for a refund after being told to purchase a ticket for myself.

I was very disappointed that my son had to return home without any pictures from his trip to see your team play at the stadium. He is a big fan of your team and would love to be able to answer any questions you have about them.

Was fantastic experiment to visit the huge Stadium and see AC Milan live

The stadium must be seen by every football fan. Despite its age, it is very nice. A walk from the metro takes a short while, and because the stadium is used by two teams you can see the visible signs of tear and wear. The area is very quiet, and I would recommend it to everybody.
