History and description

However, the club's increasing financial stringency meant that more suitable grounds could not be found, and by 1926 the club was moving again to occupy the then-empty Stadio Comunale. The stadium was inaugurated on 26 May 1926 with a 3–2 win over Internazionale. Stadio San Siro, officially named Stadio Guiseppe Meazza, was a new stadium project of former AC Milan president Piero Pirelli. In the first two decades of the 20th century, Milan had already occupied various grounds, and by the early 1920s played at a ground at the Viale Lombardia. However, the club's increasing financial stringency meant that more suitable grounds could not be found, and by 1926 the club was moving again to occupy the then-empty Stadio Comunale. The stadium was inaugurated on 26 May 1926 with a 3–2 win over Internazionale. A new stadium was designed for the club by architect Stacchini, who also was responsible for Milan's central station. The stadium was to be a complete replacement for the ground that was originally used, and it soon became clear that the ground was not large enough for the club's growing number of fans.

On September 19, 1926, Stadio San Siro officially opened with a friendly between Milan and Inter. The stadium initially consisted of four separate stands and could hold 35,000 spectators.

The original San Siro stadium was originally owned and operated by AC Milan, but was sold to the City of Milan in 1935. The city soon found themselves having to enlarge the stadium due to the increasing popularity of the club.

Plans were made for a stadium with a capacity of 150,000 spectators, but these plans were ultimately scaled down significantly. The redeveloped San Siro stadium opened in 1939 and consisted of one fully enclosed tier.

Milan had been the sole occupant of San Siro until 1945, but were then joined by Inter, who had played at the Arena Civica before.

In subsequent years, a third tier and a fourth tier were also added to the stadium. Today, the stadium has a capacity of nearly 200,000 people. The San Siro Stadium got further expanded in 1955 when a second tier got built on top of the first one, which resulted in an 85,000-capacity venue. In subsequent years, a third tier and a fourth tier were also added to the stadium. The San Siro Stadium has since been able to accommodate nearly 200,000 people.

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

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

The 1980 European championships took place at San Siro stadium in Milan, Italy from May 18th to 25th. During this time, three first round group matches were hosted there.

After Italy was awarded the 1990 World Cup, it became clear that San Siro needed a major upgrade. The architects Ragazzi, Hoffer, and Finzi chose for an ambitious redevelopment plan instead of building a new stadium.

Construction on a third tier and roof for the stadium was completed, resulting in an increased capacity of 85,700 seats.

During the World Cup, San Siro hosted the opening match between Argentina and Cameroon (0-1), three group matches, a round of 16 match, and the quarter-final between Germany FR and Czechoslovakia (1-0).

The stadium underwent refurbishment in later years, resulting in a decrease in its capacity. It hosted the Champions League final between Bayern München and Valencia (1-1) in 2001 and the final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid (1-1) in 2016.

In 2012, Inter announced plans to build a new club-owned stadium, but eventually dropped these plans when Milan announced a new stadium project in the Portello area. However, since Milan's move fell through in 2015 and no future plans for both clubs are currently known, it is unclear what their future plans would be.

How to get to San Siro

The San Siro stadium is located in the west of Milan, close to the city's centre and railway station. If arriving by car from the direction of Turin, Genova, or Bologna, drive on the western ring road (Tangenziale Ovest) until you reach exit 3. Signs will direct you from the motorway to the stadium.

If coming from the direction of Venice, take the exit towards the Viale Certosa. After the exit signs will guide you to the stadium.

Is Line M5 passing north of Milan's city centre past Garibaldi station and from most central places, a change will be required either at Lotto (red M1 line) or Garibaldi station (green M2 line)? Yes, the Line M5 passes north of Milan's city centre past Garibaldi station and from most central places, a change will be required either at Lotto (red M1 line) or Garibaldi station (green M2 line). It takes about 20 minutes to get from Piazza Duomo to the stadium.

Alternatively, the stadium can be reached with tram 16. Take the tram in the center of Milan (west of Piazza Duomo) to San Siro Stadio, the last stop on the line. The journey will take about half an hour.

Address: Via dei Piccolomini 5, 20151 Milano

Eat, drink and sleep near San Siro

Despite the fact that the stadium is easily accessible by Metro, it makes more sense to eat and drink in the center or in one of Milan's other more lively areas, and head to the stadium just for the match. Of course, there are plenty of food stalls around on game day for a quick sandwich. If you would like to stay close to San Siro Stadium while staying on a budget, the recently opened B&B Hotel Milan San Siro may be an excellent choice. Located right next to the stadium, MI. Style is also a budget option close to the stadium.

There is more variety of hotels near Lotto metro station, compared to those a short walk away from the stadium. Some of these lodgings offer more luxury, while others are budget-friendly and still meet the necessary standards.

Tickets for the match can be purchased at the stadium before it starts. Milan typically sell out their home matches against Inter and Juventus. An ID is necessary in order to purchase tickets.

Tickets come in three price categories, with tickets for the cheapest C category starting at ?20.00 for a seat at the second tier behind the goal, ranging to ?40.00 for the cheapest lower-tier seats at the sides, and ranging further to ?140.00 for a central lower-tier seat at the main stand. Tickets for the most expensive Category A games range from  ?30.00 to  ?250.00.

If there are no tickets left for the third tier, tickets for that tier will only be available if the rest of the seats have been sold. You can find a seating map here.

Inter Tickets

Tickets for Inter matches can be bought online through the official website or Vivaticket, in person at any of the Vivaticket sales points, of which there are multiple in the center around Piazza Duomo, at the San Siro ticket office, or at the Inter Store (opened Thursdays to Saturdays)?. Tickets are also available at the stadium on the day of the match. To purchase tickets, you will need an ID and typically only sell out the derby and match against Juventus.

Regular ticket prices for second-tier seats behind the goal range from ?30.00 to ?40.00, while prices for second-tier seats at one of the sides go up to ?150.00. Central lower-tier seats at the main stand cost between ?60.00 and ?120.00.

As prices for high-profile matches are gradually increased, the range of prices for Milan derby tickets is from $65.00 to $275.00. Tickets purchased on the day at the stadium may be more expensive.

If tickets for the third tier are still available, they will go on sale after the tickets for the second tier have been sold out. A seating map can be found here.

Useful Internet links

The official website of AC Milan, Inter.it, FC Internazionale, SanSiro.net and Stadio San Siro are all official websites of AC Milan. The tourism portal of the city of Milan is Turismo.milano.it. I paid someone to take my picture with them at the stadium. After talking to 4 people, I was told that I needed to pay for the photo myself. I was very disappointed when my son had to come home without any pictures of himself at the game, because he is a fan of your team and the stadium. He may be able to answer any questions you have about the team.

Very sorry to say that just to get into the stadium to take a few photos with one of your employees, I was told to pay $16 for my son and also ticket for me, since I had to go with him. I actually paid for him and then asked for a refund after I was told to pay for me.

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

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.
