Report: Artificial pitch planned for San Siro
The San Siro will likely have an artificial pitch before the
start of next season.
The Gazzetta dello Sport reports that work on a hybrid field
featuring synthetic and natural layers will begin in June, and the
first match for the new pitch will be the Trofeo Berlusconi
exhibition in August.
Neither AC Milan nor Inter Milan have made an official
announcement yet, although Milan vice president Adriano Galliani
has already voiced support for the move, especially after a recent
pitch complaint from Barcelona.
The pitch has been in poor shape for years, ever since a partial
roof was installed at the stadium for the 1990 World Cup, reducing
exposure to sun.
