MILAN (AP) — AC Milan and Inter Milan have agreed to work on a shared stadium project, and prefer “complete renovation” of their city-owned San Siro home.

In a statement, Inter Milan says a shared stadium “will serve in the best interests of all stakeholders.”

The agreement was announced after talks with Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala about redeveloping land around the 80,000-capacity Giuseppe Meazza Stadium. The clubs have shared it for 71 years.

Italian clubs typically rent publicly owned venues, despite Serie A champion Juventus and rivals in other countries generating more income from owning their stadiums.

Inter’s statement says a task force should make progress this year “evaluating several possible options, including a complete renovation of the existing San Siro stadium.”
