Real Madrid to build resort

The well known European soccer club, Real Madrid has unveiled plans for a resort which they are planning to build in the United Arab Emirates.

The club will build a $1bn holiday resort on an island which will be known as Real Madrid Resort Island and is due to open in January 2015.



Real Madrid Resort Island will be supported by the government of the Emirate of Ras al-Khaimah. A presentation at the Bernabéu, Real’s stadium, showed plans for sports facilities, a marina, luxury hotels, villas, an amusement park, a club museum and a futuristic 10, 000 -seat stadium with one side open to the sea.



Florentino Pérez, the Real president, said that it was a decisive and strategic step which will strengthen their institution in the Middle East and Asia.

“Real Madrid Resort Island will be a major tourist and sporting centre of great dimensions and the highest level. This extraordinary complex will attract millions of people looking for quality leisure services,” he added.



The 430,000 square meter facility is expected to attract around one million visitors in 2015. Real said the artificial island’s location put it equidistant between Europe and the far east, adding that more than half their estimated 300 million followers were based in Asia.



Do you think this resort is necessary or just another way for ultra rich soccer clubs to make more money?
