PSG: Al-Khelaifi Eyes a Billion-Euro Project Inspired by Bernabéu

As the world eagerly anticipates the grand inauguration of the new Santiago Bernabéu, reports from L’Equipe suggest that PSG’s Nasser Al-Khelaifi is considering a remarkable move. He aims to emulate Florentino Pérez’s vision, armed with a substantial financial commitment.

However, PSG must be aware that replicating the new Bernabéu comes with a hefty price tag. This is particularly true for the retractable pitch they wish to incorporate—an idea that, if implemented similarly to Chamartín, meaning beneath the stadium, would require the French club to pay an additional fee to Florentino. Pérez mentioned in the last Assembly that this model, featuring the famous hypogeum, had been “patented” because it was unique worldwide.

“We will make it the largest leisure and entertainment center in Europe,” is Florentino Pérez’s statement that best encapsulates what lies ahead for Real Madrid with a project that has been generating admiration worldwide for months. In France, there is talk of PSG being willing to replicate the Santiago Bernabéu, set to have its long-awaited inauguration at the end of 2023.

For months, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has been seeking solutions for the Parc des Princes, which cannot be renovated for the time being—a major obstacle for PSG. There have even been rumors of the club temporarily relocating to the iconic Stade De France while constructing a new stadium capable of meeting the demand for tickets in the capital of Gaul.

Surprisingly, the solution might emerge from the Bernabéu. L’Equipe discusses Nasser, along with Qatar, being fascinated by the advantages offered by the new Bernabéu. The retractable roof, the businesses surrounding the venue, and the pitch that can be stored in the hypogeum all point the way forward. European stadiums might shift from being an economic burden to becoming an asset in every sense.

A Billion-Euro Project

L’Equipe mentions a staggering figure for PSG’s dream—a project where Parc des Princes would accommodate 60,000 spectators (currently just 47,000). Installing a retractable roof accompanied by a retractable pitch, following the Bernabéu model, could lead to a project surpassing 1 billion euros. Qatar, unsurprisingly, is unlikely to hinder what has become a necessity for Ligue 1.

Recall that the retractable pitch is what will enable Real Madrid to generate over 400 million euros in revenue annually in the near future. It is the key to hosting concerts, NBA-NFL-Copa Davies events, or massive gatherings in a venue where financial success and sporting triumphs go hand in hand. PSG is now contemplating emulating this success by creating its own Bernabéu.
