Video: Real Madrid Unveil Incredible Plans to Upgrade Bernabeu Stadium

Real Madrid have unveiled ambitious plans to upgrade their Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, with a museum, shopping centre and retractable roof all set to be added to the historic ground.

The 13-time European champions are going through something of a transitional period on the pitch at the moment, and it seems they’re about to do the same off the pitch too.

The 72-year-old venue will gain a retractable roof and a revamped facade to modernise its appearance, whilst a neighbouring shopping centre will be demolished and replaced with a public plaza in the high-end Madrid area of Chamartin.

The new-look Bernabeu will also have a 360-degree video screen and a new seating section, though its capacity is expected to remain at about 80,000 people.

Los Blancos released a teasing video via their social media channels this afternoon showing what the renovations to the Bernabeu will look like, with construction set to begin at the end of the current season and unlikely to affect first-team fixtures.

The alterations are thought to take between three and four years to complete but, by the looks of things, the new look Bernabeu will definitely be worth waiting for.

What do you think of the plans?
