Fiorentina's chairman Rocco Comiso emphasized in an interview that simply renovating the Frankie Stadium is not enough for them. They have to overthrow and rebuild.
The current regulations in Italy have strict restrictions on the demolition of buildings more than 30 years old. This is also a big problem for clubs to build new stadiums in Italy. However, the new regulations will be implemented this month, which will make some new stadium plans. More likely to happen.
"We will go to Rome to submit a preliminary plan for the new Frankie Stadium. We want to know whether such a plan can be completed, and we also want our government to understand that we want to invest. This is also our original intention to amend the regulations." Misso said.
"Our stadium has had problems affecting the overall structure, such as cracks. Once a wall fell directly in front of me, and my wife didn't even want to go to the stadium's toilet."
"We want to build a beautiful and modern new stadium for the city of Florence. When fans come to watch the football, they shouldn’t sit there in the rain and have to endure bad viewing angles. Why do fans pay for it? Suffer?"
"I have always respected the city of Florence. I want to rebuild the Frankie Stadium. The Frankie Stadium is not Rome's arena. I suggest that we tear it down and rebuild it."
