Santiago Bernabéu of the 21st century

04 Nov 2021

Real Madrid have released another impressive video of how the renovated Estadio Santiago Bernabeu will look like to demonstrate how the new retractable pitch system works.

The impressive system of lawn maintenance transforms Real Madrid’s ground into an architectural jewel, as grass can be stored in a system of state-of-the-art trays that protect the pitch, while an artificial turf is placed in the stadium to offer the Bernabeu the opportunity to host other sporting events, congresses and concerts.

Each of the trays where the grass is placed are stored one on top of the other inside a garage that is 35 meters deep.

This storage space includes ventilation, air conditioning, irrigation system, maintenance side walkways, LED lighting, control cameras and ultraviolet light therapy to maintain the pitch.

Meanwhile, the video also shows how Real Madrid will exploit the pitch when there are no matches through images of events and congresses.

Bars inside the stadium will operate before, during and after the game, with those in attendance being offered the possibility to order food or drinks from their seat through an app.

The stadium will have five restaurants overlooking the field of play, which will be in service every week, including matchdays, while it will also have a spectacular Sky Bar, halfway between a restaurant and a cocktail bar.
