Real Madrid will ask its partners for an increase in debt for the new work on the Bernabéu lawn
The Real Madrid team has summoned all its representative partners for next November 20 to carry out the approval of the 2020-21 budget.
The intentions of Florentino Pérez are to request the approval of the budget and request permission from the Extraordinary Assembly so that the different partners can increase the financing of the great work of the stadium in order to be able to include the cost of the enormous technological project that is to be placed and to be able to divide the movable lawn into six strips.
Said grass would be stored in the white cellar. It will have a state-of-the-art transport system where it will be cared for and watered, keeping it at an optimal temperature. The grass would not be being affected by the weather conditions, so its duration will be much longer.
A much more versatile stadium
By implementing mobile turf technology, it will allow the stadium to be much more versatile so that the area will serve to hold basketball, ice hockey or NBA games, as long as the grass is collected.
In addition, the Santiago Bernabéu would also allow the holding of public events such as presentations or musical concerts. Which will allow you to get much more income through non-football events.
The headquarters would be used every time there is no football match, for any kind of event and each of these events will allow obtaining half of the 155 million euros that the white entity plans to collect to carry out the idea of the mobile lawn and multipurpose track.
For the month of April 2019, Real Madrid approved the financing of the new Bernabéu with a total cost of 575 million euros and with a total term of 30 years to pay them with fixed interest of 2.5%. However, this funded figure will now be increased.
It must be remembered that the new remodeling of the Bernabéu is considered the stadium of the future to which they now want to add a multipurpose court with a shifting grass and make the football stadium much more versatile and with greater economic tickets.
