A Look at the New Real Madrid Santiago Bernabéu Stadium (Photos)

Santiago bernabéu stadium is one of the most prominent places for any football fan in the world. It's the place where football history was created, since 1947. The stadium has been a home for Real Madrid, one of the rich football teams in Europe.

In 2021, we saw a new stadium built on its place in Madrid. Let's look at the new Santiago Bernabeu stadium and look at some key points about the megastructure.

Stadiums history

The stadium was named after Santiago Bernabeu, former player and the former president of Real Madrid.

It has been renovated numerous times in its history, and now it has nearly eighty-one thousand seats, the third-largest stadium in Europe and the second biggest in Spain. It's the only stadium in the world that has hosted both UEFA, Euro final, and FIFA World Cup final.

The stadium has been so busy that it hasn't been renovated for years. Real Madrid owners and Madrid City authorities say that there is a need for a total renovation.

What will change in the construction? 

It's hard to call it renovation because they are going to build a new stadium. The only thing that will remain from the old one is the number of seats. There are still going to be eighty-one thousand seats.

Once you look at projects pictures of the new Bernabéu, you will understand that the stadium will be the world's most up-to-date and beautiful football object. They wanted to invest around $640 million. That's quite enough to build a new stadium from scratch.

The height of Bernabéu is going to be increased by 10 meters, and a roof will be installed. 

The city authorities believe the investment in Santiago Bernabeu stadium is a good thing. For it will boost tourism.

They will add more restaurants to the stadium, build a shopping center inside, and even plan a hotel. Some rooms of the hotel even have a view on the pitch. The city plans to use Bernabéu as a venue for concerts to make even more money.

The new roof Megaproject in action

The roof will be produced and delivered to the stadium and then lifted to the top with the help of hydraulic systems using Roman technology. The roof itself will be retractable and very light.

At the moment, they are Instructing a special base for the roof. As soon as it's ready, the roof itself will be delivered and assembled on the spot.

It doesn't matter if you like football or not you'll love Santiago Bernabeu Stadium as soon as the renovation is over. We recommend you plan a journey to Madrid in 2022 to check it out by yourself.
