|Santiago Bernabeu Stadium 2012|
Users also consider it "the quintessential football stadium" and described the Bernabeu as "impressive", adding that the field is "in the center of Madrid." The Bernabeu has been ahead of four fields of great relevance. Behind come the new Wembley, the Volksparkstadium (Hamburg), Old Trafford and Camp Nou. (All of them with four stars but with less valuation)
The stadium is home to the team and its followers. Adding all the fans who attended official matches of last season, the Bernabeu welcomed 2,164,000 fans (74,600 average). We should add the approximately 400,000 people who have visited the stadium last season during the Stadium Tour, which allows to see the bowels of the stadium, to visit the museum with trophies, access to the grass and look the visiting team's locker-room.
Santiago Bernabeu stadium was full seven times last season: five in Spanish League matches (Mallorca, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Osasuna and Betis), one in the Champions League (Bayern) and the Classic in the Spanish Cup. The worst attendance took place in two games with less interest: against Ponferradina in the Spanish Cup (57,000) and against APOEL Cyprus (60,000) in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Both were the second leg and Real Madrid had won comfortably in the first leg.
There will not be a long wait to go back to watch another match at the 'Madridista Coliseum'. The first of the season will take place on August 29 in the second leg of the SuperCup of Spain against Barcelona (first leg will be played at the Camp Nou on 22) as happened the summer of last season. At that time, also with the SuperCup at stake, the Bernabeu was full on August 14 for the first leg against Barca (2-2). So far there are no tickets on sale for the first Classic of the season 2012-13 but white fans already want to go back home.
