Due to the fact that the last home match of Real played in Santiago Bernabeu on March 1 against Barcelona, and because of the coronavirus, the Spanish championship was suspended, and it is not known when Real Madrid will play again in Madrid, the club management and the FCC company decided not to interrupt the reconstruction.
The main task of the reconstruction process is to install a roof that will completely protect the stands from rain and sun, and for this it is necessary to strengthen the stadium towers. For these and other works (new scoreboard, adaptation of the arena to the needs of people with disabilities, expansion of the VIP zone) Real took out a loan of 575 million euros. Work should be completed in 2022.
It is interesting that the FCC company, which is carrying out the reconstruction of Santiago Bernabeu, built a stadium for one of the sworn enemies of Real – Wanda Metropolitano for Atlético.
Earlier it was reported that UEFA decided to postpone Euro 2020 to 2021.
