Real Madrid will not play any of their remaining La Liga home matches at Santiago Bernabeu when the competition returns.
The remodeling works of the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium continue their steady path. After knowing the removal of the lawn and; the installation of machinery that can ‘hide’ it under the ground to carry out other events; the operators have also started the demolition process of Tower B; one of the two located on the Paseo de la Castellana. Another structure is installed in a space next to it; where the cranes and construction elements are everywhere. The enclosure that occupies the stadium perfectly separated from the public thoroughfare with the pertinent security measures. It already has seven cranes of about 90 meters high that arrive from Pamplona and installed in just two days.
All these stages will be later collected and published by the club through graphic material. Which is being one of the most important works. and despite the fact that the players will play the rest of LaLiga matches at Alfredo Di Stefano the intention of Javier Tebas’ institution to return in September with an audience.
Real Madrid takes refuge in Di Stefano to finish LaLiga, and to play a game in the current edition of the Champions League as long as they manage to eliminate Manchester City in the Etihad. The closed-door of mandatory compliance for all in the coming months has led the leaders of Real Madrid to change the stage for their matches and thus move forward with the development of the works of the Santiago Bernabeu. El Clasico was the last game that saw the stands of the white club stadium.
Santiago Bernabeu with an audience in October
No one expected it, but the reality of the last few months has been that and it will also be in the coming months but at Real Madrid, they have already set up for a possible return and with a percentage of the Bernabeu stand with fans.
Irene Lozano, president of the Higher Sports Council, commented during this week on the possibility of a partial return; and at Real Madrid, they are guiding the work of the Bernabeu so that football can return to the Madrid stadium with the start of next season, which according to the first Calendar plans point to the month of October for the start of the next season; both in the League and in the Champions League; which points to the third week of that month for the start in Europe.
In this way, there will be seven months without games and without the interruptions that they suppose for the works; which have been vital to carry out one of the most important phases of the new Bernabeu; such as the construction of the ‘warehouse’.
In addition, with the possible return of the fans, the negative economic impact will be less and would be a relief for the white economy and that of the other clubs, which will greatly feel the absence of fans in the stands in the remaining eleven days of the League and in the first months of the next campaign. The works continue to progress at a good pace..
