Villarreal reveal video of El Madrigal transformation

Villarreal reveal video of El Madrigal transformation

Saturday 14th May 2022

Villarreal have released a video and more pictures of the upcoming changes to their El Madrigal stadium.

The Spanish La Liga side will construct a new stand to fully enclose the playing field. They will also make a number of dramatic visual improvements to the outside of the stadium, to make it look more modern.

All of the seats in the stadium will be replaced and will all now be covered from the elements. Two giant 21m x 7m video scoreboards will also be installed.

Work started as soon as the Spanish season finished in May. The work is due to be completed by the time the football re-starts after the World Cup in Qatar. In order to complete within this ambitious timescale, Villarreal will have to play the first half of next season's home games at Levante's Ciudad de Valencia, some 40 miles away.

The club will spend €35m on the work. However capacity will remain at the current 22,000.
