Real Madrid Open Bernabeu for Hospitals to Store Medical Supplies for Coronavirus Battle

Real Madrid Open Bernabeu for Hospitals to Store Medical Supplies for Coronavirus Battle

The Real Madrid hierarchy have opened the doors to their Bernabeu stadium so that hospitals can store crucial supplies, as Spain continues its fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

Like most of their opponents, the La Liga giants and thirteen-time champions of Europe haven’t kicked a ball since losing 2-1 away to Real Betis on March 8, with the continent’s favourite sport taking a backseat as the world’s authorities continue to fight the Covid-19 outbreak.

And now probably the most famous football club on the planet have stepped in to play their part.

According to Reuters, medical supplies donated to health workers will be stored in their iconic Santiago Bernabéu Stadium home, as part of a partnership with the Spanish sports ministry.

Moreover, Real are to assist in passing on donations made to hospitals by companies and business leaders.

As we told you earlier today, four of the Bundesliga’s biggest clubs have set-up an £18 million fighting fund for clubs in Germany struggling to cope with the crisis financially – so is it time some of England’s biggest clubs put their hand in their pockets?
