REAL MADRID’S Alfredo di Stefano Stadium has been EVACUATED during a match.
Spectators were instructed over the public address system to vacate the premises as Real Madrid Castilla took on Pontevedra.
Confused and alarmed fans left the stadium, as a message over the tannoy read: “Attention, attention, the occupants of the building are requested to evacuate, remain calm and go to the meeting point.”
According to Marca, Real Madrid later confirmed that the evacuation was due to an “electronic failure in the evacuation alarm room”.
It later emerged that a button was either pushed by mistake or malfunctioned.
The evacuation was still carried out in order to ensure that everything was in order.
After chaotic scenes, the match soon resumed from the 68th minute.
Alfredo di Stefano Stadium is located within Real Madrid’s training ground.
It is typically home to Real Madrid Castilla and Real Madrid’s women’s team.
But the venue also hosted men’s first team games during the 2020-21 season, while the Santiago Bernabeu was renovated.
Two behind-closed-doors Spanish national team matches were played there too, in September and October 2020.
