Santiago Bernabeu redesign

Post by Onyx on Fri Jan 31, 2014 2:18 pm

Real Madrid have unveiled a £330m redesign plan they hope will turn their Santiago Bernabeu ground into the best stadium in the world.

German architects GMP's design won the international tender and work will begin at the end of the season.
A new exterior will be built that includes a retractable roof and is due to be completed by 2017.
"We want to make the Santiago Bernabeu the best stadium in the world," said Real Madrid President Florentino Perez.

"Our commitment is to continue increasing the heritage of our club, thus gain in economic strength, so we can continue to lead in an environment of increasing competition.
"We believe in a project that will enhance our image, brand and city that we also feel proud of."
Reports in the Spanish media suggest half the financing for the project would come from selling naming rights and half from a bond issue among Real members.

I never liked the idea of the roof. I assume it's mainly for rain (or I suppose snow, though that's so rare, it's somewhat trivial even considering it). Mainly I just like the idea of football in the rain, but I guess with this you conditions near ideal each and every time.

yeah. Apparently that was widely thought to have been the one they'd chosen. How very unoriginal it would have looked

the roof is mostly for the fans
especially around this time of the year where its still cold and rains a lot tickets are cheap around Spain because not many want to risk it, the roof eliminates this.
