Barca Agree To New Camp Nou

Barcelona members approved on Saturday in a referendum called by the club to remodel the famous Camp Nou in an ambitious project which will cost €600m (R8.6 billion).

37.535 members took part in the referendum and 72 percent gave the Barcelona board the green light to go ahead with the redevelopment of Camp Nou.

Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, was pleased with the result and said: “In 2021 we’ll have the new Camp Nou, and it will be a source of pride for all Barca fans.”

The redevelopment will expand the capacity by further 5.000 seats as well as put a roof all around the stadium. Building work will start in May 2017 and take place in stages until February 2021, while the game play will still continue.

In addition to approving the redevelopment of Camp Nou, the members approved selling the naming rights to the new Camp Nou, which is expected to raise about €150m (R2.2 billion).

Bartomeu also confirmed that he has spoken with FIFA president, Sepp Blatter, after the one year transfer market ban imposed by world football’s governing body.

“I’ve been able to speak with Joseph Blatter and we had a friendly and cordial conversation,” he added.
