Italian football giants AC Milan and FC Internazionale have unveiled the shortlisted designs for the clubs’ new stadium and plans for the redevelopment of the San Siro Area.

The pair have shared the stadium for more than 70 years.

The clubs have shortlisted two architecture firms, Manica and Populous, which have presented their projects for the new Milano Stadium alongside plans for an urban redevelopment project for the surrounding San Siro area.

The municipality-owned San Siro is well past its heyday, and the two Milan clubs need a new stadium that will incorporate not only an updated fan viewing experience, but also the ability to earn sponsor and corporate related revenues.

That will enable to the pair to compete on a more even financial playing field with Juventus, the clear leaders in Serie A in garnering commercial revenues.

Women in sport: A fair playing field?

Girls who are challenging tradition by playing sport encounter prejudice at every step.
In many conservative families, girls are denied education and work opportunities. But many are challenging gender stereotypes by entering sports. But it’s not easy. They have to face questions on everything from their choice of sport to the way they dress, and why they want to step out of home to compete in a “man’s game". They fight prejudice at every step, for social acceptance and equal pay, hoping to bring glory to their families, their communities and the country.

We speak to three young Indian sportswomen dabbling in offbeat sports, and ask what can be done to create a fairer playing field for women in sport.
