The new Santiago Bernabéu project

"It will be a special, unique and spectacular stadium", declared Florentino Pérez.

The Santiago Bernabéu will take on a new look over the next few years in order to become one of the world's most impressive sports arenas, as well as an architectural marvel. The joint project between GMP Architects and L35 Ribas won the contest to decide on the design for a stadium that will be a global icon.

According to the words of Florentino Pérez, the new Santiago Bernabéu “will a be an incredible place full of emotions and pride for our fans. We want it to be the best stadium in the world, as comfortable a place to watch football as possible and with pioneering architectural design. The best stadium, in one location, that will be a worldwide symbol. A special, unique and spectacular stadium".

GMP Architects and L35 Ribas will carry out the project

“Four of the most highly respected teams on a global level pitched their ideas to us. But we could only opt for one of them and we chose GMP Architects and L35 Ribas. This pioneering project perfectly reflects what we were looking for. It is extremely beautiful and can adapt to the rigours of the sporting calendar".


Meanwhile, Volkwin Marg, the founder and owner of GMP Architects, said: “We have had the honour of building more than 20 stadiums, but this is the most important project we have ever taken on. We present to you the most important stadium of the new generation".

"The design reflects the values the legendary club that is Real Madrid holds dear. Additionally, the retractable roof will allow for different events to be held here. Sporting events, cultural events and other kinds of entertainment that will attract people to the stadium who have previously never visited it”.
