Real Madrid’s Bernabéu stadium To Incorporate A Casino

During the redevelopment of the Santiago Bernabéu stadium, Real Madrid will incorporate a casino, which is expected to raise about €120 million in sales.

The remodelling is expected to cost about €575 million, according to club president Florentino Pérez, but the casino will help the club recoup some of that money.

Perez said: “For many more unforgettable moments at home, we present you the Santiago Bernabéu of the future.”

Additional income

Along with the inclusion of a casino, every structural corner of the Bernabéu can be used to create additional income sources for the club, with other facilities including a first-class restaurant, a modern gallery, tour and exhibition rooms, and interconnected stores.

Within the arena, 360-degree displays, including a video scoreboard, will be mounted alongside audiovisual media to provide spectators with material that will “enrich the stadium experience” during live matches, allowing for “second screen” advertising and betting.

At a special announcement by Pérez in April 2019, plans for a large-scale re-modernisation of the La Liga giant’s home were announced, giving the famous footballing venue a “futuristic look.”

Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final final leg against Liverpool will be played at the club’s 6,000-seater Alfredo Di Stefano stadium as the Bernabéu is being renovated, the Spanish government announced on Wednesday.
