Estadio Santiago Bernabéu is the home stadium of Real Madrid.

Due to international requirements and renovation works a capacity for 85,000 people has been created, all up for cheering for their favourite team, seated or standing. 

Visiting the sight

The football club offers guided tours through the stadium. During those tours one has the chance to take a glance at the stadium itself, the field, the player's tunnel, the changing rooms and the multimedia exhibition room. The tour starts at Tower B in the Avenida de Concha Espina.

Historical Information

Both the football club Real Madrid and the stadium have a long tradition to look back to. The stadium was constructed during the time of club president Santiago Bernabéu in the period between 1944-47. Until 1953 they kept extending it until the stadium allowed a capacity of 125,000 visitors. In 1955, then, it was named after its initiator, Santiago Bernabéu.

Legendary is the “Goal of Madrid”! It happened even before the game started. The goal wasn't even a very spectacular or the victorious one. In 1998, in the Champions League semi-final between Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid the actual goal, in fact, just literally fell. Shortly before the incident occurred, fans had climbed up a guard fence and as soon as the fence was torn apart, the goal just fell with it. It took more than an hour until a new goal was found and set up again. Finally, after all that hassle, there was nothing that could have stopped the exciting game any more.

Especially German teams have had bad luck playing in the stadium. In 1982, for instance, the German national team lost the world cup final against Italy. In general, German teams seemed to lose many competitions here in the past.
