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.
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.
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)!
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!
