NEWS | 11/06/2020Following the first year of redevelopment work, the transformation of the madridistas' stadium is now apparent.
One feature of the future stadium that is now visible is the metal structure belonging to the new towers on the Paseo de la Castellana. Equipped with ramps, escalators and lifts, the new towers will replace the current B and C towers and will serve to make the flow of spectators more fluid. They will also serve an architectural purpose, given that they will provide structural support for the new roof.

This side of the stadium has also undergone two major changes since June 2019. The first relates to the construction of an underground car park on the site that was home to the Esquina del Bernabéu shopping centre. The new ground level has been reached and building work has started on the five underground floors, which will replace the three floors offered by the shopping centre. Around 500 parking spaces will be created and the car park will enable for the space to serve new purposes, such as offering an area for the Real Madrid and visiting team's; coaches to be parked.
The second of these major changes relates to the demolition of the adjoining building, which housed the club's institutional offices and the Adidas store. This work will allow for the construction of a new building which will run all the way along the height of the side of the stadium and will feature 10 functional above-ground (there were previously three) and three underground floors. This building will be incorporated within the new stadium structure.
All of these new features seek to make the Santiago Bernabéu into a state-of-the-art arena that offers optimum comfort, security and cutting-edge technology and where supporters continue to enjoy unforgettable experiences.
