 New Camp Nou stadium Barcelona

The new Camp Nou stadium

In January 2014 FC Barcelona unveiled exciting new plans for the new Camp Nou football stadium. There were projects being considered to build a entirely new FC Barcelona stadium in a new location on Avenida Diagonal near the existing Camp Nou stadium, but these were dismissed by the board due to cost considerations. Following an extraordinary meeting of the Club's Board of Directors in January President Sandro Rosell announced a unanimous decision to submit the proposal to build a new stadium on top of the current structure to a Barça members' referendum on 5th or 6th April 2014. So it looks very likely that FC Barcelona will stay in the current location in the Les Corts area of Barcelona and refurbish the existing Camp Nou stadium by building a new stadium over the current structure.

Cost was not the only consideration and in Barça chairman Sandro Rosell's announcement he said that " The Camp Nou is part of our collective memory. It is the largest stadium in Europe and is an icon of the city of Barcelona." Read the full announcement here

The propsoed 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 2017 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. 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.

New Camp Nou stadium Barcelona

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," 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 2014.

Award-winning British architect Norman Foster was chosen in 2008 as the man who would transform the iconic FCB stadium into a world class symbol of Barcelona and Catalonia making it “an international architectural reference point for the 21st century.” The new design in 2008 was enthusiastically received by fans.  Foster is one of the world's most successful architects with incredible structures like the breathtaking Millau Viaduct  in France and the Beijing Airport in China among his impressive list of achievements. Foster also is no stranger to the city of Barcelona. For the 1992 Olympic games in Barcelona he designed the Collserola Tower  Norman Foster is familiar with football stadiums having more recently designed the new Wembley Stadium in London.

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.
