Barcelona to leave Nou Camp as home ground

Barcelona have confirmed that the club will move to a different home venue for one year to allow redevelopment at Nou Camp.

The planned works will begin in June this year after receiving a permit from the Barcelona City Council to start work. The project will involve expansion of the sitting capacity from 99,000 to 110,000 spectators and refurbishment of the club store and museum at the stadium.

The first stage will focus on the first and second tier, technology, the environs of the stadium, and exterior urbanisation.

The demolition of the third tier will happen in 2023 after the first stage to ensure that the stadium can operate at virtually full capacity next season.

During the 2023-24 season, after the demolition, Barca will play their games at 61,000 capacity Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium. The municipal facility hosted the opening ceremonies of the 1992 Summer Olympics and was home to Barcelona’s cross town rival Espanyol for several years.

In the 2024/25 season, work will continue in the Camp Nou, but games can also be played there, albeit with the capacity reduced by approximately 50%. The work would be completed during the 2025/26 season.

The Camp Nou redevelopment is expected to cost Barca €1.5bn ($1.74bn) and the club is in talks with investment bank Goldman Sachs to finance the project.

  1. I am extremely inspired with your writing abilities and also with the format in your weblog. Is that this a paid subject or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent high quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice weblog like this one today..

  2. I conceive this web site has got some very good information for everyone. “Je veux que les paysans mettent la poule au pot tous les dimanches.” by King Henry IV of France.

  3. This blog is definitely rather handy since I’m at the moment creating an internet floral website – although I am only starting out therefore it’s really fairly small, nothing like this site. Can link to a few of the posts here as they are quite. Thanks much. Zoey Olsen

  4. One thing I would really like to say is always that car insurance canceling is a hated experience and if you’re doing the best things as being a driver you may not get one. A number of people do are sent the notice that they have been officially dropped by the insurance company they then have to fight to get added insurance after having a cancellation. Inexpensive auto insurance rates are often hard to get after the cancellation. Knowing the main reasons regarding auto insurance termination can help owners prevent burning off one of the most important privileges obtainable. Thanks for the strategies shared through your blog.
