FCC, Acciona, Ferrovial and San José bid for the expansion of the Bernabéu for 400 million

ACS, owned and chaired by Florentino Pérez, cannot compete for the project

Acciona, Ferrovial, FCC and the San José group are competing for the contract to remodel and expand the Santiago Bernabéu football stadium in Madrid, a project estimated at around 400 million euros, according to sources from the sector.

The four companies count “until the middle of next February” to present to Real Madrid their respective technical and economic offers to take over the work, as the newspaper ‘El Economista’ advances in its edition this Tuesday.

ACS, a company owned and chaired by the president of Real Madrid, Florentino Pérez, cannot participate in the competitive process to be awarded the works.

The group does not enter the fray by virtue of an agreement that the members of the Real Madrid board of directors maintain not to participate with their businesses in those of the club, as Pérez himself explained in his day.

The expansion and remodeling project of the Santiago Bernabéu is one of the major non-residential building projects at stake this year in Spain.


The contract will entail, among other actions, equipping the stadium, located in the center of Madrid, a retractable cover that will cover the entire capacity of the venue. Its current façade will also be changed, with the removal of the side towers.

On the interior level, the project includes the construction of a new 3,000-seat grandstand on the east side, works on other sides and enabling new entrances.

The VIP area will also be restructured and increased with some 2,000 new locations, accesses and corridors will be adapted, and new recreation areas will be fitted out, among other works.
