Photos: Check Out The Area Hidden Beneath The Estadio Santiago Bernabeu Pitch

During Real Madrid's games, fans may not be able to see what's beneath the pitch at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, but the bottom level of the stadium is still a construction site with cranes and construction materials.

Builders are constructing on an underground 'greenhouse' where the retractable grass will be housed while other events are held at the Bernabeu.

Because of the supporters' return to the stands, builders were unable to complete all of the work they had planned, and the underground space is once again used as a construction site on days when Real Madrid is not in action.

Real Madrid have released photos of the bottom level of the Santiago Bernabeu, where lighting and irrigation equipment has been installed to help maintain the retractable lawn.

Around 40 individuals are working eight-hour shifts every day to remove soil from the underground construction site, to have the retractable lawn rail system ready by June.

Real Madrid will be able to financially exploit their stadium 365 days a year thanks to the new retractable pitch and roof, which will allow them to host concerts, sporting events, and congresses on the pitch while the football team is not in action.

The retractable roof enables guests to relish a spectacular picture of the city from the top of the city's most distinguished stadium.

The new Bernabeu also features cutting-edge technology, including a 360-degree scoreboard and the ability to broadcast images onto the whole exterior surface of the stadium.

Real Madrid have also kept a secret about the building of an extra deck inside the stadium, which will supply an additional 4,000 seats.

Los Blancos are also considering converting their stadium into a basketball court so that their club can play EuroLeague games throughout the week.
