New Camp Nou stadium

New Camp Nou stadium Barcelona

New Camp Nou stadium 2018


This time it's for real. Barça have been talking about rebuilding Camp Nou stadium for some years now and finally it looks like it will happen. In March 2016 FC Barcelona announced an exciting new plan for the new Camp Nou football stadium to renovated from 2017 to be ready for the 2021 season. This has since been pushed to start in 2018.

See Camp Nou renovation schedule

The new Camp Nou stadium design is by a Japanese company Nikken Sekkei, who defeated 8 other finalist candidates to win the €420 million bid to renovate Barcelona's iconic Camp Nou stadium from1957.

Nikken Sekkei will collaborate with local architects Pascual i Ausió Arquitectes. The renovation of the Camp Nou stadiun will increase the seating from 99,350 to 105,000 and the new Nou Camp stadium will sell naming rights so it will have a brand name that will be used with the words Camp Nou.

The stadium name sponsorship is expected to bring in €200 million for the club which will cover a third of the cost of the renovation.

In previous years there were several projects to renovate the stadium including the idea of building a entirely new FC Barcelona stadium in a new location on Avenida Diagonal near the existing Camp Nou stadium. Now it is clear that FC Barcelona will stay in the current location in the Les Corts area of Barcelona and the existing stadium will be refurbished by building a new stadium over the current structure.

The Camp Nou is the largest stadium in Europe and is an icon of the city of Barcelona.The proposed new Camp Nou will have covered seating for 105,000 spectators and a new, steeper first tier to improve the view of the action The renovation work is planned to start in May 2018 and end in February 2021. 




The proposal for a new Camp Nou plans will encompass three main areas: the new Camp Nou football stadium, a new Palau Blaugrana arena with room for 10,000 spectators and the Espai Barça (Barça Space.) A casualty of the new plans is the current Miniestadi mini-stadium, which will be moved to Barça's Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper training ground in Sant Joan Despí and re-named in tribute to legendary Barca player and manager Johan Cruyff. The proposed new Mini-estadi will seat between 6,000 and 7,000 spectators.

Where will Barça play during the building of the new Camp Nou? At Camp Nou. Football matches will continue during the construction. The proposed new Camp Nou stadium will be constructed throughout three and a half football seasons, but the Barça will play at the Nou Camp all through the renovation. The work on the outside will largely be done during the football season and the new terraces and inside work will done in the summer between seasons.

In 2008 Camp Nou turned fifty and to mark the 50 year anniversary of the Camp Nou stadium FC Barcelona also unveiled plans for a "new Camp Nou," by architech Norman Foster, which was to be a complete restructuring of the FC Barcelona football stadium. The name Camp Nou means “new field” in Catalan. But due to the current economical crisis that started in 2008 the plans for the "new Nou Camp" stadium were temporarily put on hold and we had to wait for new plans until 2016.

New Camp Nou Stadium Barcelona

The 2008 designs for the new Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona were a tribute by Norman Foster to Antoni Gaudi, the famous Catalan architect, and were inspired from mosaics for the new covering of a future stadium.  The 2008 design was a Gaudi-esque mosaic of multi-coloured tiles in FC Barcelona blue and scarlet colours alongside the orange and yellow colours of Catalonia's flag. Football games will continue during the construction.
