Celebrating Experiences

Santiago Bernabeu Stadium

Santiago Bernabeu Stadium – The home of Real Madrid!

The Estadio Santiago Bernabeu is one of the world’s most famous and prestigious football venues, owned by the Real Madrid Club. I did the stadium tour in 2012, when I visited Madrid in Spain.

The tour can be divided into two sections. One is the football museum where one gets to know about the history of the Real Madrid Club and the other section is all about the football ground, player’s rest room, press room and so on. I have already written about the football museum and the trophy room in my previous post. The panoramic view of the impeccably maintained stadium and its sheer size is indeed impressive.

I was thrilled while posing for photographs in front of this magnificent ground, which had accompanied many glorious nights and accommodated many galacticos.

VIP Seats inside Santiago Bernabeu Stadium

I tried to feel the incessant excitement of a soccer fan while sitting on a VIP seat and watching a football match with 81,044 spectators (capacity of this stadium) at this stadium.

Yeah, you got it right! These are the VIP seats.To sit where legends sit was truly amazing. The player’s dugout area is wonderful. All the exquisite seats are sponsored by Audi.

Player’s Tunnel at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium

Player’s Tunnel

This is where the players come out of their dressing rooms into the field. This is called Player’s tunnel!

When I entered the locker room, the luxurious shower room with Jacuzzi and the massage chairs, for once I thought, the career as a footballer is not bad (but now it is too late)!

Press room of Real Madrid

I didn’t mind holding a press conference at the Real Madrid’s press room at the end of the tour. Though there were no big journalists, but one can surely imagine their presence, like I did!

Once I would like to see a match at this stadium and would love to cheer the players from among the 85000 spectators!

Pin It!

  1. lovely…you are helping us catch up with the world cup fever in your own way.

  2. Wow the player's dugout area is amazing!! So cool that their sponsored by Audi.My fiancee drove by Audi's headquarters to show me while I was visiting Germany in April. It was HUGE…

  3. It is huge. And that player's dug out area looks real cool.

  4. Wow! That is some stadium! I've been to quite a few here in the U.S., but I have never seen a player's dugout that posh. Americans love football and baseball, but I think the rest of the world treats soccer players like real stars.

  5. Whoa. That dugout. It's like something out of a scifi movie. Can't stop staring.

  6. Wow, what fun! That is a spectacular place, especially the dugout. And your photos are incredible!

  7. That looks like so much fun!

  8. That is awesome, that you got to take a tour through the stadium! I've been to a soccer stadium once and I vividly remember the amazing feeling cause it's so HUGE! But I didn't get to see the press room or the dugout area. Love those pics! 🙂

  9. Hi. If i buy tickets to the Stadium Tour/Field tour….will I be able to get the same access to the same areas as you shown in your pictures? Or did you only get access to those special places (like the players seats and locker room, etc) because you were taking a tour for a professional/journalism reason? Basically, I'd like to know if I would be able to see what you did in your pictures. Thanks so much and can't wait to hear from you!
