Real Madrid’s redevelopment of the Bernabéu stadium will include space for a casino, capable of generating around €120 million in revenue for the Spanish club.
The remodelling, scheduled for 2023, has been estimated to cost around €575 million, however, the income generated from the casino would recoup a portion of the sum.
In addition to a casino, each structural corner of the stadium will be used to generate extra revenue streams for the club with other amenities including a first class restaurant, as well as a new museum, spaces for tours and events, integrated shops and 360 screens, including a video scoreboard.
“For many more unforgettable moments at home, we present you the Santiago Bernabéu of the future,” club President Florentino Pérez said on the stadium redevelopment.
A 360-degree video scoreboard will be installed inside the stadium together with audiovisual media, to provide the fans with content that will enrich the stadium experience during live matches, opening the arena to ‘second screen’ promos and betting.
In April 2019, plans for the large-scale re-modernisation of the La Liga giant’s home were unveiled at a special presentation by Pérez at a special presentation, giving the iconic footballing venue a ‘futuristic look’.
Yesterday, the Spanish government confirmed that Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final final leg against Liverpool would be played at the club’s 6,000-seater Alfredo Di Stefano ground whilst the Bernabéu undergoes renovation work.
