Florentino Pérez wants the new Bernabéu to be open 365 days a year to host all kinds of events that generate income for Real Madrid. One of those events that Florentino Pérez wants for the new Bernabéu is to host matches for the United States NFL.
This is how El Confidencial assures it, which explains that “like the field of Tottenham, which has a retractable synthetic surface located under the natural grass field that is used for NFL games, the new Bernabéu will also be prepared to host this type of event ”.
The Confidential, on the other hand, recalls that in the Bernabeu already played an american football game. “On Sunday, November 16, 1958, the Real Madrid stadium hosted a meeting of this sport. To ensure the full, it was played after Real Madrid-Valencia (3-0). It is true that the teams were not professionals, but from two US Air Force bases in Europe. Specifically, the Togers from Toul (France) and the Tacooners from Giebelstadt (Germany) ”, explains El Confidencial.
