Real Madrid have revealed plans to build a $1 billion holiday resort in the United Arab Emirates that 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.
The 430,000 square metre 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.
