had four stands with a total capacity of 10.000 seats. In
1939 the San Siro Stadium was rebuilt and the capacity raised
Later in its history, the ramps were rebuilt and the stadium
could seat a total of 150.000 spectators. But, for security
reasons, Milano's council decided to forbid an attendance
higher than 100.000.
Due to the World Cup in 1990 who took place in Italy, the
San Siro Stadium was again restructured in 1989. This restructuring
consisted in a fibreglass roof and eleven stairs towers. The
capacity changed to 85.000 as we know it today.
The stadium is specially designed for football. The pitch
size is 105x68 metres.
