£500m revamp of Santiago Bernabeu resumes

Work to modernise Bernabeu resumes

Tuesday 14th April 2020

Work to modernise Real Madrid's famous Santiago Bernabeu stadium has resumed.

The second largest stadium in Spain will receive a £500m facelift which will modernise the facilities for supporters as well as drastically change the way the stadium looks.

Work had already been taking place this season, focusing on the commercial area, roof and private boxes. It will now continue with the installation of a 360 degree scoreboard, retractable roof and steel "skin" to surround the stadium.

Capacity will remain unchanged at 81,000.

A video of the redevelopment can be found below:
