Real Madrid kick-off Santiago Bernabeu reconstruction

Santiago Bernabeu Stadium

The game against Sevilla was the last at Santiago Bernabeu stadium in its current shape. The club will start the reconstruction of the stadium in coming weeks, after the Champions League final, and two and half years later we’ll see a completely new stadium. The main rebuilding work will be done in summers of 2018 and 2019, and the club hopes to get the job done by 2020.

The new Bernabeu is already a reality. Last Sunday Real Madrid played their last home game of the season and defeated Sevilla with 4 goals to 1, and now the club will begin the modernization of the sports arena. All the thoughts are now associated with the Champions League final which will take place on June 3 in Cardiff, and following the game, there might be a celebration ceremony in the stadium, that’s why the club wants to wait until the game and only after it start the works.

The farewell to the “old” Bernabeu went as planned. Real Madrid managed to beat one of the strongest La Liga sides thanks to two goals from Ronaldo and one goal from Nacho and Kroos each. Now the club aims to win the remaining matches and to grab La Liga and UCL titles, which will be the best possible goodbye to the stadium.


Starting the works in a few weeks, the club wants to organise the biggest part of the reconstruction in summers of 2018 and 2019, while the launch of Santiago Bernabeu Vol. 3.0 is planned for 2020. The best club in the world must have the best stadium in the world, too, the club representatives say.
