According to Florentino Perez, Real Madrid will not play any of their remaining home games at Santiago Bernabeu when Laliga returns.
The 6000 seater stadium, which is usually home to the club’s youth team Real Madrid Castilla, will be undergoing renovations and will be equipped with new floodlights and advertising spaces, while VAR technology will also be installed.
Perez revealed the decision to finish the campaign away from the Bernabeu was made so renovations could be completed at the famous stadium ahead of schedule.
“We have made the decision to play in the Alfredo Di Stefano stadium in our Ciudad Real Madrid all the games in which we will play as the home team,” Perez wrote in a letter to Madrid’s supporters.
“This decision will allow us to advance in the works of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.”
The updated Bernabeu was due to be completed in the summer of 2022, but Perez’s decision may see the project finished ahead of schedule.
Some of the renovations on the stadium include the installation of a retractable roof, while a removable pitch will be kept so the arena can be used for other events such as concerts.
