Luigi Ferraris up for sale?

Genoa and Sampdoria may be forced into a bidding war for ownership of shared ground the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

The stadium could be for sale to the highest bidder as the Genoa city council no longer intends to maintain the facility, leaving the two clubs to either make a bid for the ground or find a new home.

Rumours suggest that Samp are drawing up a plan for new premises somewhere on the outskirts of the city, but the Grifoni are much more likely to try and purchase the Luigi Ferraris, which has been valued at around £20m.

"If and when the details are decided for the sale, we will sit down at the negotiation table," Rossoblu chief Enrico Preziosi stated.

The 36,000-capacity stadium was built in 1911, but was completely restructured as part of Italy’s World Cup 1990 preparations.
