Buying our Real Madrid tickets is clearly a passport to get into one of the greatest stadium in the world: the Santiago Bernabeu. This stadium is not only majestic because of its design, the comfort of the building or the quality of the field’s grass, but also because of the relevance of the matches that take place in here.
One of the best ways to discover this stadium is through a ‘Madrid Tour’, also available in our website, which is a visit that takes you to the dressing rooms, the museum, the benches and even the grass. But of course, the most passionate way to enjoy the Real Madrid’s stadium is by having a ticket.
The Santiago Bernabéu (Santiago Bernabeu Metro station, Line 10) is a stadium with all the comfort of the 21th century: heating in all the zones of the stadium stands, VIP boxes for special fans, a commercial centre located outside in one of the corners… And all this will be nothing in some years: the club is moving forward a new plan to renovate the stadium, including a roof, a commercial centre even bigger and a luxury hotel on the facade that faces the Paseo de la Castellana.
A Stadium Full Of History
The Santiago Bernabéu is not only a stadium with a great future, but also it can be proud of its history. It was inaugurated in 1947 with a match between the Real Madrid and the portuguese team Os Belenenses. More than 70 years later, it has suffered many enlargements, making the stands bigger and covering them with a small roof for the perimeter, protecting from the rain to the two-thirds of the people who get into the stadium with Real Madrid tickets.
But clearly, one of the most special days took place on 1982 July 11th. That day, the Santiago Bernabéu became part of a very exclusive group: the stadiums that has hosted a final of the FIFA’s World Cup. The national teams that participated in that match were Germany (RFA) and Italy: the Italians won 3-1 and gave us unforgettable moments like the passionate celebration of Tardelli’s goal.
Besides, it has also hosted four Champions League’s finals (formerly called, European Cup): in 1957, Real Madrid defeated Fiorentina, in 1969 AC Milan won against Ajax of Amsterdam, in 1980 Nottingham Forest defeated Hamburg and in 2010 Inter Milan became champion against Bayern Munich.
Nowadays, the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium hosts matches of all the Spanish competitions (la Liga, Champions League, Spanish Supercup and King’s Cup, being sometimes the seat of the final match). Besides, the Spanish National Team also plays here some of its matches, both friendly and officials.
Real Madrid’s supporters are known by being the most exacting of Spain. All the movements and actions are analyzed carefully, and the fans don’t hesitate in punishing and censoring with whistles the players and the trainer when they think they aren’t doing it right. Nevertheless, they have also applaud warmly other local idols, such as Alfredo Di Stefano, Emilio Butragueño, Zinedine Zidane, Raúl González, Cristiano Ronaldo and Iker Casillas. Besides, they have also prized the value of some great rivals, applauding international stars such as Alessandro del Piero, Ronaldinho and Leo Messi.
