The stadium was a gift from the Milan president Piero Pirelli (in charge from 1909 for twenty years) to ‘his Milan’, and was designed by Ulisse Stacchini, the architect whose other major work in the city was the Milan Central Station, and renowned engineer Alberto Cugini. Stadio San Siro officially opened on the 19th of September 1926 with a friendly between Milan and Inter (3-6).
In 1980 this football temple was named after Giuseppe Meazza in memory of the former Inter and Italy legend. The stadium underwent its most recent transformation in 1990 with the addition of a third tier, completed in time for the 1990 World Cup.
