As Florentino Perez stood in the Presidential Box, he couldn’t hide his smile and excitement at what was about to come. Since 2009, this man has been trying to move forward with the redevelopment plans for the Santiago Bernabeu and now it is finally time for it to happen.
“A new stadium that will allow us to continue growing and that will be financed with the new revenues that the remodelling will generate. The new Santiago Bernabéu stadium will entail an important improvement for the club, but also for its surroundings. And it will allow Real Madrid to remain competitive in an increasingly difficult international football setting. This is a great opportunity to also turn our stadium into a great technological platform that serves to relate to our fans and star in a digital transformation. We will have a spectacular 360-degree video scoreboard that will be one of the emblematic elements of the new Santiago Bernabéu stadium. We want, in short, to be the great digital stadium of the future.”
“Here in this stadium are the 23 European Cups, 13 for football and 10 for basketball. A unique track record in world sport, but above all, here are the experiences, the dreams, the hopes, the memories, the passion and the emotions that have been transmitted from generation to generation. And all these feelings are the pillars of this new Santiago Bernabéu stadium, the great stadium of the 21st century, which will mark our destiny and which will always be the pride of Madrid and of all Madridistas”.
