Cagliari Calcio will name a designer for its new football stadium in April after choosing a shortlist of three architects for the job.
The Italian Serie 1 club has whittled the list down from 25 to the final three who gave presentations yesterday.
Tractebel Engie, J + S with One Works and Sportium showed off their design proposals for the new stadium which will be built on the island of Sardinia.
A public exhibition is now underway to highlight the three stadium design concepts.
Cagliari Calcio board member Stefano Signorelli said:
We started with 25 concepts and have now picked three which offer the best options. By April we will make the final choice.
Mayor of Cagliari Massimo Zedda added:
The new stadium will be the home of our team, other sports, music and leisure. It will be another opportunity for growth, for work, for the Sant’Elia district and for the city.
