    Real Madrid more than a team,a club

    Indeed usually don't put up these pictures but its ok. The Real Madrid FC is more than a team, its a club, a family for me. I keep in touch with hundreds of fans all over the world for life.
    I grew up in Madrid as a young boy became part of the team at alavin level and benjamin, left the city but once with the shirt on, it stays with you forever. Then you start meeting like minded folks and you realise you have entered a family.

    I am an honorary member of the Real Madrid FC peñas or supporters group all over Spain, from the north in Galicia to the south in Andalucia. Five peñas in all with hundreds of fans now including grandchildren of the fans and extended family members.

    Equipment: bring your heart and soul.

    Estadio Del Bernabau

    Home to Real Madrid. An 80,000+ all seater stadium, which is one of the best in Europe.

    I've been lucky enough to visit this stadium twice, both times to see Real Madrid v Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League. My first trip was in April 2000. The game finished 0-0.

    There were more goals on my most recent visit in February 2013.

    I had bought seats situated in the top tier of the main stand and so the view was fine. You'll be pushed to find a bad seat in the ground. The atmosphere was excellent.

    I was there for the UEFA Champions League KO16 round, Real Madrid v Manchester United, played on 13th February 2013. The match ended 1-1.

    As I was in with the home supporters, I had no difficulty in getting in and out of the ground. If you are in the away supporters, be wary of policeman waving batons.

    Puskás started his career in Hungary playing for Kispest and Budapest Honvéd. He was top scorer in the Hungarian League on four occasions, and in 1948, he was the top goal scorer in Europe. During the 1950s, he was both a prominent member and captain of the Hungarian national team, known as the Mighty Magyars. In 1958, two years after the Hungarian Revolution, he emigrated to Spain where he played for Real Madrid.
    While playing with Real Madrid, Puskás won four Pichichis and scored seven goals in two European Champions Cup finals. In 1995, he was recognized as the top scorer of the 20th century.

    After retiring as a player, he became a coach. The highlight of his coaching career came in 1971 when he guided Panathinaikos to the European Cup final, where they lost 2–0 to AFC Ajax.

    Do you like football?? Then go to the Real Madrid's stadium! For 15€ you'll have the change to look through the stadium with no limits and even have access to places such as the tunnel to the locker rooms, the bench, the pitch, the showers, the press conference room, the trophies exhibition and even the presidential box.

    Tours take place from Monday to Saturday from 10 to 19. Sundays and holidays from 10:30 to 18:30 (except on match days)

    Stadium Tour - Real Madrid

    by ALANinWORCS69 Written May 1, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Estadio Santiago Bernabéu is the home to Real Madrid Football Club and it's one of the best Stadiums in the World.

    Officially rated 5 Star by UEFA this 80,400 capacity stadium is well worth a visit... even if you're not going to be watching a match!

    The cost of the tour is 15 Euros and includes access for panoramic views of the stadium and access into the changing room areas. It also has an official store inside where you can buy replica kit or pretty much anything else Adidas (strip sponsors) merchandise.

    Tickets can be bought on the day; when I visted the ticket office being used was at Gate 7, directly opposite the Santiago Bernabéu Metro Station, although the tour actually started further around the stadium at a gate on Ave de Concha Espina.

  • Ticket touts

    by MarkySummers Written Jun 8, 2007

    If you are looking to go to a game at the Bernabau, my advice would be to buy tickets on-line or get them at latest 24hrs before the game. All but the lowest category games will be almost impossible to get tickets via the box office on the day, which leaves you in the hands of the touts. While forgeries are rare, you will be very lucky indeed if your ticket is for anywhere but the top tier in which it is virtually impossible to see whats going on, its almost like watching a football match from a plane. Many of the touts rely on English fans turning up an hour before kick off thinking they can just pay on the gate.

    If you only go one football stadium make it the Bernabéu. The unique atmosphere and the quality of Real Madrid makes it an unforgetable experience. Everyone should experience this at least once. I lucky enough to be going to Madrid next year for my year abroad and I'm going to see every home game.

    For tickets go to the Taquilla. Go for Grada Alta, Tribuna or 1er Anfiteatro as you get a view from these althoug Tribuna is rather pricey. Reckon on about 25 - 40 Euros for ticket.

    Real might have not won anything recently but they're the best club in the history of football with 9 European Cups and 29 Spanish League titles.

    In addition to watching a match here do the tour where you can visit the VIP box, the changing room, the museum, the presidential box and even walk round the pitch.

    This was my #1 thing on my to do list while in Madrid. I have never been to a european Footbal(soccer) match. First off we had to get tickets and after the concierge at the Palace Hotel tried to make us pay him 175 euro's each we decided to goto the stadium (took the subway right to it). There were still tickets for sale and the line was about 100ft long so we decided to buy them from a scalper. We paid 60 Euro's for face value 45 euro tickets and did not have to wait inline. The tickets were on the third tier out of 5 tiers and were good seats. There are no vendors walking up and down the aisle at the stadium so bring in some food and snacks.

    visiting bernabeu is an absolute must if you are a football lover.
    it's a very nice and modern stadium with a cool bar to hang out for a beer or two, while soaking up the atmosphere.
    there is also a souvenier ehop in the stadium where you can buy real madrid souveniers.

    Take a seat

    This stadium doesn't look a bit like Pittodrie in Aberdeen or Hampden in Glasgow - in fact like no other - hey there's a lot of money in football...........check the wages bill!!

    Equipment: Why not buy a scarf here - you can wear it when it's cold at home
