Exactly 560 are the days that have passed since Real Madrid played their last match with the public at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. It was on March 1, 2020, in a Classic that the whites won 2-0. The pandemic arrived and, in view of the fact that LaLiga's return was going to be played behind closed doors, the club chaired by Florentino Pérez decided to move to Valdebebas, where that season he snatched the league title from Quique Setién's languid FC Barcelona.
The return of the team and fans to the Bernabéu against Celta was scheduled for this Saturday, but it was delayed to Sunday to mitigate the extension of FIFA dates that have affected the Conmebol teams. Real Madrid opens on Wednesday in the Champions League against Inter in Milan, although losing a day of rest has been good for them to win one in preparing the field.
Of course, if at the beginning of August there was talk that Madrid could host 32,522 subscribers in its stands, that is, almost half of the around 70,000 it has in total and 40% of its capacity (81,044 spectators), finally only 22,500 will be lucky, and not all subscribers.
As announced by the club, these, who will not have to pay the subscription while there is a reduction in capacity due to the pandemic, have had preference to purchase the tickets, to then give access to non-subscribing members, the holders of the Madridista card and finally, the general public.
Ticket prices varied depending on who they were for. For paid members, there are between 95 and 15 euros for the fourth amphitheater. For members, the cost will be between 112 and 28, while in the case of the general public, the most expensive costs 140 and the cheapest 35.
