Madrid is plenty of cultural, tourist and gastronomic attractions that make the Spanish capital one of the most important cities in Europe. Of course, we can’t forget the sportive icons of the city. The most relevant is Santiago Bernabéu, the Real Madrid’s home and one of the greatest stadiums of the world. Real Madrid is the best club of XX century, named by FIFA, and most of the people, the best club in the football history. Real Madrid has won 14 UEFA Champions League, 35 Spanish League titles, 19 Spanish Cup titles and 7 FIFA club world cup, among others.
Santiago Bernabéu, also known as Chamartín Stadium, has hosted really important matches through its history: 1964 UEFA Eurocup Final (Spain 2-1 Soviet Union), 1982 FIFA World Cup Final (Italy 3-1 Federal Germany), 2018 Libertadores Cup Final (River Plate 3-1 Boca Juniors) and four UEFA Champions League Finals (1956/57, 1968/69, 1979/80 and 2009/2010).
Living a matchday with the passion of “merengues” is an indispensable activity for any football lover. Although Real Madrid’s stadium is currently being completely remodelated, the atmosphere that you can breathe in a matchday is incredible, not only inside the stadium but also in the surrounding area.
Matchday experience would start at Sagrados Corazones square, meeting point between players and fans. There, ‘madridistas’ have lived many epics moments that we will remember during the tour. Then, we would go around Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and contemplate ‘The White Temple’ and its excellent location.
Further on, Marceliano Santa María street, the main place for Real Madrid fans that they visit every game, will offer you a vibrant football atmosphere. There, you should enjoy a “caña” (a beer) with a “tapa” (some food).
An hour before the game, your local host would take you to your seats to not to miss a single minute of excitement inside of the stadium: the warm-up, the exit from the dressing room tunnel and each instant until the final whistle.
After the match, your host would recommend you other plans to know each corner in the Spanish capital at night.
Verified Homefans Host
Homefans believe that stadiums will be open to fans, however we cannot at this stage confirm what the capacity will be. However our flexible booking policies mean that if the stadium will only accept 50% fans and you decide you only want to travel with 100% attendance you can swap to another venue or another date.
This will vary destination to destination and based on your nationality and age. Therefore Homefans are not able to advise on this. Please check the foreign ministry of your destination and home country and the stadium requirements. Again, if you find the requirements too much you can defer to later in the season/year when they relax further.
We believe so, we all need something to look forward to. But we understand that people may be apprehensive which is why we have created a flexible cancellation policy which means in the event that the event does not happen the amount paid simply becomes Homefans credit.
You can transfer this to a later date (with no time limit), transfer to another tour, or even give it to a friend. This flexibility also applies if you decide to cancel for any reason (as long as you give us 45 days notice)
If we know where you will be sitting we always mention this is in the inclusions section.
Unfortunately we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking, however our destination managers work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats. We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.
The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above. However this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own. Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!
If we can accept children there will be an option in the booking flow. However for many trips our local hosts take the decision, based on the content of the tour, to open this up to adults only. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.
Weekend matches can move from Saturday to Sunday and vice-versa. We provide the current scheduled date but we would advise you only to book the matchday experience if you are available in the destination for the whole weekend.
