The spectacular work at the Bernabeu makes it a new tourist attraction in Madrid

11 Jul 2020

A viewpoint from which visitors can see the progress of the works has been included in Real Madrid‘s tour of the Santiago Bernabeu.

More than 14 trucks and bulldozers are working on the pitch right now, where there is absolutely nothing left but dirt and pipes.

The stands which are close to the pitch have completely disappeared along with the grandstand and there will be new seats throughout the stadium.

It is likely that the inclination of some stands will be altered and this summer everything will be ready so that the retractable lawn can be added next year.

Outside the stadium, more than 12 cranes are already working on the new roof, beginning with the installation of the two new towers, which will support the structure.

Fans and tourists have been impressed by the current image of the stadium, while the pace of work has been excellent.

The lockdown and the idea to play the remainder of their home games this season at the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano, have in one way benefited the club.

What remains to be seen is when fans will be allowed back to the stadium, but those in charge of the work consider the best scenario being the team to play at Valdebebas at least until January.
