The Italian heritage authority have given the go ahead for the iconic San Siro stadium, the home of AC and Inter Milan, to be torn down.

San Siro has been the home of both Italian giants since 1947, but the venue's days are over as plans to build a new ground have been put in place.

Both sides filed a request last year to jointly build a new 60,000-seat stadium on the same plot of land.

Although the heritage authority giving the green light doesn't mean the demolition is confirmed, it is a huge step forward.

The new stadium is is set to be the launchpad for a £1.1 billion real estate plan in the local district.

Despite many fans having sentimental feelings for the stadium, it has been ruled as having 'no cultural significance' considering the numerous renovations it has gone under.
