Real Madrid gives an unexpected surprise with the Bernabéu pitch

28 Aug 2020

The works of the Santiago Bernabéu stadium are advancing from strength to strength. Despite the focus these days on Leo Messi and his possible departure from FC Barcelona, ​​in Chamartín they have not stopped working so that the pharaonic project looks pristine. Although it is true that the Bernabéu is unrecognizable due to the cumbersome machinery, everything indicates that this weekend it will recover part of its essence.

Sources close to Real Madrid assure that it is expected, between this Friday and Sunday, grass will be implanted at the Santiago Bernabéu. The idea of ​​the white club would be that the playing field is prepared in case, at any time, the Government and the CSD agree on the (limited) entrance of the public to the stadiums.

In France it has already been done in several friendly matches and the European Super Cup will be played with 30% capacity. It is not unreasonable that this measure is also carried out in Spain for the new season. In fact, it is something that was already studied a few months ago and that, how could it be otherwise, is also being examined now. It will depend, of course, on the situation the country is going through (at the moment not very favorable).

Football clubs are suffering a tremendous reduction in income and the only thing that could save some would be the opening of their stadiums. If they are able to guarantee a safety distance and the necessary hygiene measures, the Executive of Pedro Sánchez would have no choice but, at least, to study the possibility (30% capacity).

At the Bernabéu they believe that it is too early to raise this hypothesis, but the idea is to leave the grass practicable  “between this Friday and Sunday” It does not mean that it will be something definitive, since, just as they put it, they can remove it again. Maybe even as a test to install it later. This is confirmed by sources close to the white club who closely follow the works of the stadium.

To this day, not even Real Madrid footballers know where the season will begin (if it starts). There is still no calendar for the First Division and much less for Segunda B, where Castilla plays. In any case, the Di Stéfano is prepared to adapt to any circumstance, but there is no news about it yet.
