The monument stadium completely renovated is taking color. A group of approx. 200 workers work day and night so that what is planned in each of the two stages can be reached in a timely manner and that soon the fans of River They can enjoy their new home. Daily tasks are hard and the club decided to show a part of it through an Instagram story.
In it you can see a fairly large crane working on the stand Sívori low lower, in which the first concrete dump is being carried out. Until now, it had only the base of iron and wood, which then carries the cement on top to be the same as the lower Centenario, which is already 90% finished and could be seen in the match against Sarmiento. In addition, throughout the week there were advances in different sectors of the stadium.

Beyond the new lower lower grandstands (popular in Sívori and Centenario; stalls in Belgrano and San Martín), the biggest novelty of the new Monumental will be its color: gray will predominate in almost the entire stadium.
The chromatic choice is argued in the international trend and will seek to convey modernity and spaciousness based on a cleaner design and visual stylebeing examples the stadiums of Tottenham, the Santiago Bernabéu, the SoFi Stadium (it is in Los Angeles and is multipurpose, although it is usually used for American football games) or the Arena da Baixada (Athletico Paranaense field).

However, the application of gray also has a structural advantage: the seats in this color have a useful life four times longer than that of other shades They tend to discolor when exposed to ultraviolet rays. Such a decision, then, will guarantee the club maintenance savings in the medium and long term.
Despite the inconvenience caused by the Argentine economic crisis, River has already completed 40% of the renovation work which will bring the capacity of the stadium from 72,054 spectators to 81,000. And with the stands well attached: the closest row will be 12 meters from the field of play when before it was 35.

The Liberti in this way will not only be the largest stadium in South America -decisive for a team that has hung the sold out sign in the last 16 games- but it will also be the first in Argentina to have four layups, with a change of paradigm regarding proportions: 71% will be audiences and 29% popular.

A modernization that will include as a novelty two widescreen panoramic screens -one at each head- in addition to the single tunnel for the exit of the teams on the lower low San Martín, which will have a view from the paddock and whose construction process reached 70% (post excavation and concreting is being carried out the structure).
