Work on the redevelopment of the stadium began in 2019 and the “core part” was expected to be completed by “the end of 2023”, but this did not happen and the inauguration was seriously postponed and the total cost has increased to 1.4 billion euros.
Innovative Roof Design:
The renovation of the Santiago Bernabéu has a retractable roof, which is an important architectural feature. This allows the stadium to host events in different weather conditions and provide an enhanced experience for fans.
360-Degree Video Screens:
The first football stadium in Europe with a 360-degree video screen, which offers a comprehensive visual experience for spectators. This high-tech addition would contribute to the overall modernization of the stadium.
Commercial and Recreational Spaces:
The new Bernabéu includes commercial and recreational spaces, including restaurants, shops and a museum. These additions can contribute to overall revenue generation and create a more diverse experience for visitors.
Many modern stadium projects focus on sustainability, and the renovation of the Santiago Bernabéu includes environmentally friendly features such as energy-efficient systems, green spaces and sustainable building materials.
Enhanced VIP Areas:
The renovation has included added VIP and hospitality areas, providing an even more luxurious experience for premium ticket holders.
The effort to preserve and showcase the stadium’s historic elements was expected, ensuring that the Santiago Bernabeu’s rich history was celebrated in the renovated structure.
A multi-sport stadium:
In the new Santiago Bernabeu stadium, not only football will be played, this stadium will organize almost all major sports matches such as: Basketball, Rugby, Tennis, etc.
