AC Milan to leave the San Siro? Say it ain’t so!

3 Comments

There are so few things to truly count on in life. Or in soccer, it seems.

Rivalries will prevail, as we know. Rangers and Celtic supporters will share a certain disdain. Same for Real-Barca, Boca-River Plate, Portland-Seattle and such.

We know Pele will be scoring king (for a while longer, at least, right Leo?). We know FIFA will operate by the “guideline” more than the “rule.”

Venue-wise we count on Manchester United lining up at Old Trafford. Real will perform at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, AC Milan will … wait … what? AC Milan will not perform the calcio at the fabled San Siro? Say it ain’t so!

Today it’s a little closer to reality.

AC Milan and Inter Milan have shared the ground since 1947. In the interim, the San Siro has hosted two European Cup finals, an opening match, a quarterfinal and other matches of the 1990 World Cup, a Champions League final and more big matches beyond those than anyone could possibly remember. The stadium will host the 2016 Champions League Final.
