Fiorentina and the city council look set to enter final negotiations over the construction of a new stadium. Municipal requirements have been met by the club’s project.
Negotiations between the club and the city have been ongoing since 2012 as La Violla are looking to develop a new 40,000-seater stadium in the city’s Mercafir area, at a cost of over €300m.
As reported by La Nazione, the Tuscan club was told on Friday they met the requirements imposed by the city for the construction of the new stadium, with related commercial shops and hotels in Mercafir, north of the city.
Now Fiorentina will have time to present the final project that will also include the resettlement of Florence’s largest fruit and vegetable market currently present in Mercafir.
