Atalanta must compete with several parties before becoming owner. Apparently their offerings are considered much better than others so that the City of Bergamo willing to remove the stadium in May 2017.
The city government of Bergamo agreed to sell the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia which is their asset, after Atalanta agreed to pay 10 percent higher than the asking price.
As reported by the Italian Football, Atalanta agreed to pay an amount of 8,608,600 euros (about Rp 138 billion) to have the stadium and its surrounding area. In addition, Atalanta also agreed to spend 2.6 million euros (around Rp 41 billion) to renovate the stadium and its supporting facilities after the last time in 2015.
Atalanta now has two months to present their plans for rebuilding the stadium, which will also include improvements to two curves or the north and south tribune. Atalanta will also fix up to 2,000 square meters of land that will be set aside for commercial and other functions, such as visitor parking.
