Real Madrid Will Spend More Than $600 Million To Remodel Their Home Stadium
The new stadium will have a retractable roof and a 360-degree video screen
Real Madrid announced that it has secured financing worth 575 million euros (649.5 million dollars) to pay for the remodelling of its Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Fox Sports reported.
This loan will mean that the Spanish club will service an annual debt of 29.5 million euros from 2023-2049.
The 13-time European Cup winners said in a statement that they will continue to run “regular activities without being affected by the payments of the works.”
According to the report, the financing was structured by J.P Morgan and Bank of America Merrill Lynch with the collaboration of Banco Santander and Societe Generale.
Madrid announced the remodelling of its iconic Santiago Bernabeu Stadium last week. The 72-year-old Bernabeu will get a retractable roof and a revamped facade to modernize its appearance, including a 360-degree video screen.
On Friday it added that the increased income from the improved facility will pay for the remodelling and “significantly increase the club’s recurring revenues.”
