Inside Real Madrid’s £500m Santiago Bernabeu stadium redevelopment… which will actually reduce capacity by one – The Sun

REAL MADRID have released a video to show fans how the Santiago Bernabeu will look after its £500million makeover.

The Spanish giants have been allowed to continue the redevelopment of the stadium – which will reduce the capacity by one.

Madrid were granted permission in March 2020 to begin the major construction operation at the 73-year-old venue.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the club have been given the go ahead to continue the revamp as planned.

The LaLiga giants posted a video to show their fans what the ground will look like when the project is finished.

It shows how the Bernabeu will look with a retractable roof and 360-degree video screen that stretches around the entire ground.

Madrid's clip also shows the spacious leisure and entertainment facilities that will be introduced as part of the makeover.

The club will extend the Bernabeu Stadium over 66,000 square metres and it is reported that shops, restaurants and even a hotel will be added.

But the capacity of the ground will be reduced from 80,243 to 80,242.

During the fight against the deadly virus – which saw Spain plunged into lockdown – Madrid opened up the stadium to help hospitals in the local area.
