La Liga side, Real Madrid has unveiled its new stadium, Santiago Bernabeu, with the stadium expected to contain 81,000 fans.

The stadium was scheduled to be ready by 2020, however, the COVID-19 pandemic helped speed up the renovation of the stadium which means it may be open to fans soon.

The absence of fans in the stadium allowed Real Madrid to play their games at the reserve ground Estadio Alfredo di Stefano while work went on at the stadium.

The state-of-the-art roof will catapult the Bernabeu into the conversation of football’s greatest arenas with a fully modernised stadium.

As well as the roof, a modern 360-degree screen will circle the ground with a multi-storey car park situated underneath the stadium.

A new shopping centre and as well as several restaurants are also set to be built for an updated match-day experience.

According to Marca, more than 700 workers have been involved in the stadium renovation, with the hope that the completion of the project will match when fans are permitted entry back into stadiums by the Spanish government.
