Spain: Progress at Santiago Bernabéu Once again we visit the most exciting stadium construction in the world. What is happening at the old-new Santiago Bernabéu? This time we give you a tour around the pitch, a look under the roof, the terrace surrounding the stadium and the club museum.


Tests on the pitch and work at heights

In recent days, the first tests of the platforms' movement of the new mechanised pitch were carried out. Although the tests were not very intensive, watching them in place was, according to eyewitnesses, spectacular and very impressive. Once these first tests are completed, trials will begin to cover the platforms in the hypogeum.

While work continues at pitch level, the 360 video scoreboard structure is being installed on the roof of Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. The entire construction is expected to be completed in the coming weeks, and this is one of the key points of the coming summer. An event worth noting for its spectacularity and complexity is the installation of the masking sheets for the roof structure. Operators are working on this, hanging at a height of 50 metres.

The execution of the video scoreboard and the mechanised pitch clash a little, so due to safety regulations, work on both projects will often have to alternate and the hours of work will have to be optimised to maximise efficiency.

Skywalk and Real Madrid museum

One of the highlights of the redevelopment of the new Bernabéu is the impressive skywalk. The terrace around the stadium is still taking shape and every time you visit the construction site you can see it becoming more impressive by the day. The skywalk will be more than just a terrace - it will be a space that will attract the attention of fans to enjoy special moments before, during and after matches.

Not only is the new Bernabéu undergoing an impressive architectural transformation, but it is also preparing to house one of the most precious treasures for fans of the club - the new Real Madrid Museum, located on levels 3, 4 and 5. It will be more than just an exhibition of trophies and historical memorabilia. It will be the epicentre where Real Madrid's rich history will come alive.
