    The Santiago Bernabeu, home to Real Madrid, will host its first-ever concert later in 2024.

    The concert will feature several artists in a music festival, and the event is expected to be electric.

    This is only the beginning as Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour is coming in May 2024, and it’s already been announced that the NFL will play a regular season clash at the stadium in 2025.

    Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has also in the past spoken about his dream of making the Santiago Bernabeu the “best stadium in the world”.

    He is also keen on seeing the stadium hosting more epic events, other than football matches.

    The Bernabeu is a football stadium in Spain, with a seating capacity of 85,000 and the stadium has the second-largest seating capacity for a football stadium in Spain.

    When did the Santiago Bernabeu stadium become home for Real Madrid?

    It has been the home of Real Madrid since its completion in 1947, with its record attendance being a game involving Los Blancos and AC Milan on April 19, 1956.

    The stadium was built from October 1944 to December 1947, and it was opened on December 14, 1947, about 76 years ago.

    It has been renovated thrice; 1982, 2001, and the recent renovation from 2020 to the present.

    The epic arena was reopened on December 23, 2022, and about €1.7 billion was the construction cost for the match venue.

    The stadium was named after footballer and late legendary Real Madrid president Santiago Bernabeu.

    He was president of the Spanish side from September 1943 till June 2, 1978, when he exited the earth.

    The final matches for the 1964 European Nations’ Cup and the 1982 FIFA World Cup were also held at the Santiago Bernabéu, making it the first stadium in Europe to host both a UEFA Euro final and a FIFA World Cup final.

    Additionally, the stadium has also hosted the final of the UEFA Champions League on four occasions; 1957, 1969, 1980, and 2010.

    Meanwhile, the Santiago Bernabeu has also been expanded on 5 different occasions, namely; in 1952, 1992, 1994, 2011, and 2023.

    Real Madrid are arguably the biggest team in football history, with virtually every footballer admiring the possibility of donning the colors of the White Angels.

    Anyway, Real Madrid’s hunger for success hasn’t changed over the years, as they continue to lust towards the biggest of honors in European football.

    Real Madrid’s successes over the years

    Los Blancos have won several trophies in their history, including; 35 La Liga titles, 14 UEFA Champions Leagues, and 5 FIFA Club World Cups.

    Football clubs certainly don’t come any bigger than the gigantic Real Madrid, who continue to exude their brilliance and footballing artistry as the years go by.

    It will be interesting to see other fascinating sporting and non-sporting events that the Santiago Bernabeu will host in the coming years.
