The Community of Madrid sells out of the old Santiago Bernabéu station signage in half an hour after putting it on sale on Metro's online shop

""
The Regional Ministry of Housing, Transport and Infrastructure is currently undertaking the comprehensive remodelling of this emblematic space. The Madrid underground has marketed these unique, limited edition pieces with collectors and Real Madrid fans in mind. These are five blue slats, which were located on the platforms, and five green slats, which marked the exits to the stadium

The Community of Madrid has sold, in half an hour, all of the old signs for the Santiago Bernabéu Metro station (line 10), which had gone on sale in the underground's online shop this morning. This way, part of the original posters that have been removed due to the comprehensive remodelling works that the Regional Ministry of Housing, Transport and Infrastructures is carrying out in this area have been sold.

Specifically, these were five blue slats, which were located on platforms and were priced at €199.95; and five green slats, which signalled the exits to the Real Madrid stadium and which could be purchased for €99.95.

These unique, limited edition pieces were of significant value to collectors or to Madrid fans, especially after winning the 15th Champions League in their history, so their commercialisation has generated enormous interest. This initiative is in addition to other similar ones that the Madrid underground has been carrying out in recent years. Thus, in 2021, the original diamond signs for the access gates to the stations were put on sale and, as on this occasion, they were sold out practically on the same day.

The regional government continues to carry out the remodelling work on the Santiago Bernabéu station, which has a budget of €66 million and is due to be completed in the first quarter of 2027. The refurbishment includes an increase in the surface area, quadrupling the current surface area; the replacement of the corridors with a large hall, facilitating passenger traffic, especially on match or event days; and the incorporation of 12 new lifts and 24 escalators.
