A crazy rumor emerges in the Spanish media: a casino inside the new Bernabeu!
Renovation work on the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu continues to meet deadlines, which means it is set to open in the summer of 2022.
The stadium has not seen a meeting since March 1, 2020. However, the Real Madrid hierarchy is not considering the creation of a casino inside the new Bernabeu as a crazy rumor emanating from the Spanish media indicates. .
It is also an impossible option because the law does not allow the establishment of gambling casinos in city centers.
The objective of the stadium reform, in addition to modernizing and adapting the enclosure, is to increase the days of use of the stadium.
The Bernabeu had only been used on average 30 days a year, while the target from 2022 is to increase that number to 300 days.
Football will be the main focus, but many other sporting, musical and entertainment performances will have their place at the new Bernabeu.
The Real Madrid basketball team even has the potential to play their games there.
The bad tongues had given themselves to their heart’s content, arguing that Real would have looked very favorably on the cash flow generated by the presence of a casino after the disastrous economic fallout from the global pandemic.
After all, Florentino Perez, the president of Madrid, remains a big gambler, even if he is content to bet on the markets in the transfer window rather than the tables of Poker and Blackjack.
For now, it is doing well, Real Madrid remains one of the biggest slot machines in the world.
