Real Madrid have revealed how the Santiago Bernabeu stadium will look once renovation work is completed - and the result is spectacular, to say the least.
The Spanish giants are arguably the most successful club in footballing history, having won 34 La Liga titles, and reigned European on 13 separate occasions.
With their Bernabeu home looking slighted weathered in recent years, Real made the decision to invest heavily in giving the complex a face-lift, firmly bringing the club into the 21st century as they did so.
They will certainly have a home befitting of their reputation in the sporting world, as new footage demonstrates.
Earlier this week, the club posted a video to its YouTube channel, as well as its official Twitter page, one which shows all of the new features that are set to be introduced at the Bernabeu.
This includes pitch removal for other sporting and musical events, with the designers seemingly taking inspiration from Spurs' new retractable pitch for NFL games.
However, Real's design goes one step further, as it is the first of its kind to feature an ingenious storage solution for the turf when it gets folded away.

In essence, the grass sections are packed with ventilation, air conditioning, an irrigation system, maintenance side walkways, LED lighting, control cameras and ultraviolet light therapy to ensure the pitch is always in good condition.
Just as is the case with the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, this would allow Real to host NFL, basketball and tennis events moving forwards.
The venue will also enhance its hospitality offering with five new restaurants dotted around its upper section, with a sky bar and shopping mall also located on the concourse.
The re-design certainly won't be cheap, totalling a reported £700 million, but it could be revolutionary in terms of generating income for the club moving forwards.
The final stages are due to be completed in June 2022, with the new-look stadium ready to welcome players back for the 22/23 season in August of next year.
