Real Madrid won't play at the Bernabeu when season resumes

Real Madrid won't play at the Bernabeu when season resumes

Tuesday 2nd June 2020

Real Madrid will not play their remaining games at the Santiago Bernabeu when the Spanish season resumes later this week.

The Bernabeu is currently undergoing a £500m facelift which will completely transform the look of the stadium.

Instead Los Blancos will use their 6,000 seater Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium close to Madrid airport. The ground is usually home to the club's reserve side, Real Madrid Castilla who play in Segunda B, the Spanish 3rd division.

Madrid currently sit second in La Liga, 2 points behind leaders Barcelona. They have 6 home games left this season, plus a potential Champions League semi-final, should they overturn a 2-1 deficit to Man City in the quarter finals.

The move to Alfredo Di Stefani should only be temporary, with Real planning to start next season back at the Santiago Bernabeu.
