About the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium
The legendary home of the world-famous Real Madrid football team, the Bernabeu is considered one of the world’s most prestigious football stadiums, and it regularly hosts some of the most important international competitions in the sport. Plans for the construction of the current stadium began in the 1940’s when Santiago Bernabéu was granted a loan to purchase land near the old stadium of Chamartín, the neighborhood of Madrid where the current stadium stands. The stadium was inaugurated on December 14th 1947, and at the time of completion it had a capacity of 75, 145 visitors. The first match ever played in the stadium hosted Real Madrid against Os Belenenses of Portugal.
The stadium was known under the name ‘Real Madrid Football Club stadium’ or ‘New Chamartín stadium’ amongst locals but in 1955, the decision was made to change the name to Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in honor of the club president who had secured the site’s construction. In the eighties, the stadium was once again renovated ahead of the 1982 FIFA World Cup, and in the past few years, large investments have been made in order to improve the quality of the visitor’s experience and stadium’s infrastructure, including new bars, restaurants, heating, lighting and audio systems. In 2010, club president Florentino Pérez announced that plans are underway to renovate once again in a multi-million Euro project aiming to make the Bernabeu ‘the best stadium in the world’.
Real Madrid Footbal Club
One of soccer’s most successful clubs, Real Madrid is second to none. Thirteen-time European Champions, Real Madrid can regularly be seen outspending the world’s top clubs on the transfer market, or breaking records at all levels of the sport. The second highest-earning football club in the world, and one with the highest fan followings worldwide, Real Madrid is estimated to be worth €3.47 billion ($4.1 billion) in 2018.
Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, David Beckham, Raul Gonzalez, and Cristiano Ronaldo have all been part of Real Madrid’s superstar array through the contemporary era of the club.
Real Madrid History:
Founded in 1902, Real Madrid wasted little time in reeling off four Copa del Rey triumphs between 1905 and 1908. Their first Spanish Championship triumph arrived in the fourth edition of the competition in 1932, and they backed that up with another title the following year.
The 1950s and 60s were truly Real Madrid’s time. The Merengues walked away with 12 titles over the two decades and also began their love affair with the European Cup. Indeed, they claimed the first edition in 1956, coming from 2-0 down against French club Reims to win 4-3 in true Real Madrid fashion. They could boast the unique talents of Alfredo Di Stefano who made his debut on 23rd September 1953, the actual day he arrived in the city with his wife and daughters to pass a medical.
Championship titles were on tap throughout the 70s and 80s, and it was such dominance that led FIFA to vote Real Madrid the most successful club of the 20th century.
Real Madrid is the only club to have a European Cup trophy on-site having won the title five years in a row.
Such an illustrious history naturally means high expectations in the pressure cooker environment of the Bernabeu. Supporters expect to see winning and entertaining soccer and are not afraid to make their feelings known to the players if expectations are not being met.
