RedBird CEO Gerry Cardinale made €40m available to cover the initial costs of the project, which includes the land rights as well as various other bureaucratic aspects like urban planning.

In January, the San Donato municipality council approved the plans submitted by Milan, which gave the green light for a 70,000-seater stadium, a hotel, restaurants, shops and a museum. The plan is to open the stadium by 2028, ready for the 2028-29 season.

Further bureaucratic work is still needed, including consultations with local residents and discussions with the San Donato council regarding infrastructure, before construction work can finally begin.
