Real Madrid publish video revealing new Santiago Bernabeu, constructions begin next summer

Real Madrid unveiled the redevelopment plans for the Santiago Bernabeu this Tuesday and announced that constructions will begin this next summer and it will take three to four years to complete the stadium.

“This stadium will be the best in the world. It will improve the club and its surroundings and it will allow Real Madrid to be competitive. Our current stadium will turn 72 years old in September. Santiago Bernabeu showed us the way to build Real Madrid and this is where our 23 European cups are placed,” said the president referring to the football and basketball trophies.

The new Bernabeu will feature a “360º scoreboard” and a new cover and roof. The whole project looks great but it would’ve been a good idea to increase the current capacity, something which would also increase the revenue for the club. It will take almost four years for Real Madrid to finally have a new home at the hear of the Spanish capital but Madrid will play their home games at the Bernabeu during the process.
