Official: Real Won't Play Home Games At Santiago Bernabeu

With the LaLiga campaign set to resume next week, it has been confirmed that Real Madrid will not play their home games at the Santiago Bernabeu because it is receiving a futuristic facelift that will cost an estimated $600 million.

Los Blancos will resume the 2019/20 campaign with two successive home fixtures, hosting Eibar on 14 June and Valencia on 18 June.

However, LaLiga has confirmed that the club will play their home games at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium, which usually hosts the club's reserve side.

Construction work on the Santiago Bernabeu has already started and, with fans not being allowed in the stands, Los Blancos asked LaLiga if they could play their remaining games at the Valdebebas pitch.

The Spanish top flight has since granted Real permission to host their final six home matches – against Eibar, Valencia, Getafe, Mallorca, Deportivo Alaves and Villarreal – at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.

As a consequence, Los Blancos will now install new floodlights at their reserve team's ground, while advertising boards will also be set up.

However, the Spanish giants are reportedly planning to return to the Santiago Bernabeu in October – which is earmarked for the start of the 2020/21 LaLiga campaign – and are working on a plan to reintroduce a limited number of fans into the stands.

According to Marca, the proposal suggests that fans will be able to watch from a third of the stadium in October before filling the complete stadium by January 2021.
