"Instructional courses within the administration in its various aspects" were necessary. For this reason, the regional council only today approved the resolution on the program agreement with the Municipality of Cagliari for the construction of the new stadium "which will be named after Gigi Riva".

The president of the Region, Christian Solinas, said it this morning when announcing - alongside the councilor for public works Pierluigi Saiu and his colleague for sport, Andrea Biancareddu - the green light for the act which allocates the 50 million euros (public ) to contribute to the construction of the plant. " I have already sent it to the mayor of Cagliari via certified email," added the governor. After sharing the text, with Paolo Truzzu's signature, it will be up to Solinas again, who must issue the implementing decree. And the funding for the stadium will be closed, with a total cost of 157.4 million. Also in time to enter the competition to host the 2032 European Championships.

With the resolution «the story that a Region did not want to build the Cagliari stadium is also refuted. There is now certainty about resources. But the resolution needed to be verified by the offices", assures Solinas.

This morning was a crucial act: the green light for the financing had to arrive by the end of the month, to allow the Municipality to provide the funds in the budget. On the contrary, another year of delay would have accumulated. So much so that in recent days both the Municipality and Cagliari Calcio had requested the Region. And now, almost at the last possible moment, the answer has arrived.

Meanwhile, the name has already to be defined. The City Council unanimously approved the naming of the stadium of the future after the Scudetto striker. But the club has signed a ten-year agreement with Unipol, also to name the new stadium. Which therefore could be called (when it opens) Unipol-Gigi Riva
