The Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, more commonly called San Siro, is a football
stadium in Milan, Italy. It is the home stadium for two of the three most
successful Italian Football League clubs: A.C. Milan and F.C. Internazionale,
and one of the most famous football stadiums in the world. Although it has
been officially renamed in honour of Giuseppe Meazza, the Inter and Milan
player of the 1930s and 1940s, it is still commonly called San Siro. With the
spectators being so close to the pitch, the stands being so steep and with a
large roof, it is considered to have one of the best atmospheres of any
stadium in the world.
The stadium construction started in 1925 in the Milanese district of San Siro,
which gave its original name. The idea to build a stadium in the same district
of the horse racing track, belongs to the man who then was the president of
A.C. Milan, Piero Pirelli. The architects designed a stadium only for football
(there is no athletics track in it). The inauguration was on 19 September 1926,
when 35,000 spectators saw Inter defeat Milan 6-3. Originally the ground was
home and property of AC Milan. In 1947 Internazionale became tenants and
the two have shared the ground ever since. Although Giuseppe Meazza played
for both Internazionale and AC Milan, he enjoyed more success at Inter and is
more favoured by the Inter faithful; as a result, Milan fans favour the term San
Siro for the ground.

As well as being used by Milan and Inter, the Italian national side also plays
occasional games there and it has also been used for the 2000/01,1969/1970
and 1964/65 Champions League/European Cup finals. The stadium was also
used for UEFA Cup finals when played over home and away legs but has never
featured since the competition changed to a single final structure in 1997/98.

The stadium underwent further renovations for the 1990 World Cup with
$60m being spent, bringing the stadium up to UEFA 5-star standard. As part
of the renovations, the stadium became all seated, with an extra tier being
added to 3 sides of the stadium. This entailed the building of 11 concrete
towers around the outside of the stadium. Four of these concrete towers
located at the corner to support a new roof which has distinctive protruding
red girders.
