After months of discussion, the Milan City Council has agreed to renovate the San Siro stadium, which is home of both Inter Milan and AC Milan football clubs, according to media reports.

In recent years both the teams have contemplated moving to a new stadium if the upgrades weren’t agreed to, but the latest decision by the city council means that both teams will get their wish and see the Giuseppe Meazza get a huge makeover.

The city council officials have described the €15 million ($17.6 million) renovation project as “extraordinary” while announcing that it would be completed by June 2020.

“The technical committee for the use and management of the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium and related services has approved the annual routine maintenance programme and plan of work for extraordinary maintenance and innovation of the stadium, to be carried out by June 2020,” the council said, according to a press release, and also reported by Football Italia.

“It confirmed the annual relaying of the pitch, plus other procedures, such as the lighting of entrances, a new operations centre for police, sealing of the first tier, redevelopment of electrical systems and rebuilding the first-tier toilets.

“The stands and executive boxes in the first tier will be modernized, plus there will be a new lounge for the club museum, increase in commercial spaces, construction in the red stand’s first tier of a fourth executive box and new media areas, as well as the renovation of the square outside the stadium.”

The San Siro, whose official title is the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, has been the home of AC Milan since it opened in 1926, while city rival Inter has occupied the stadium since 1947.
