The ‘new’ Bernabéu, home of Real Madrid basketball?

The ‘new’ Bernabéu is getting closer to seeing the light. The works are progressing at an extraordinary pace and it is becoming increasingly clear that the new white enclosure will be one of the city’s greatest attractions. So much so, that Real Madrid is trying to make it even more spectacular and is considering the idea that, in addition to football matches, it will also host the basketball section.

This is stated by Rac 1, which informs that the white team has valued the possibility that the basketball section also plays its games in the enclosure, exchanging the surface of the lawn for that of the parquet thanks to a special infrastructure and thus cease to inhabit the Wizink Center as it currently does.

High probability

Thus, the aforementioned Catalan media assures that there is a “high probability” that Real Madrid basketball will move its headquarters there. This would imply a greater utility of an enclosure from which it is expected to take advantage not only of its football matches but of all the businesses that reside there, making the space a place of use and enjoyment during the 365 days of the year.

In addition, in this way, the capacity of basketball matches would be expanded, which before the pandemic varied between 7,000 and 10,000 spectators and would be a great claim to be able to host Euroleague, Eurobasket or Basketball World Cup finals.
