The official video of Real Madrid’s $1 billion Resort Island
Yes, you read that correctly.
Real Madrid have announced they’ll create a $1 billion artificial landscape in the UAE, with the holiday seasony sounding name Resort Island.
Resort Island is a man-made set of peninsulas which will be shaped to mimik the Real Madrid crest with some noticeable add-ons.
For accommodation there will be luxury hotels and villas. Vacationers will enjoy the marina and the amusement park. While football fans are also catered for with a club museum and, here is where it gets wackier, they’ll be a 10,000-seat stadium with one side open to the sea that will broadcast the futuristic, 3D ass-whooping, “first hologram football show” ever.
“It is a decisive and strategic step that will strengthen our institution in the Middle East and Asia,” said Real president Florentino Perez.
The club hope to attract over 1 million people per year to the resort (note, Disney Land attracts around 15 million people a year), and those holiday makers are being targeted from the two billion people who live within a four hour air flight.
….I like the music, and wouldn’t mind a glimpse into what the holographic football would be like.
