Barca Stadium Switch Confirmed

Barcelona have officially confirmed that the team will be moving from the Camp Nou for the 2023/24 season.

The Catalan giants are set to play the duration of the 2023/24 season away from their traditional home and will be moving to Spain's Olympic Stadium.

According to Goal, the Camp Nou is set to undergo significant renovations, with the third tier of the ground scheduled for demolition at the end of next season.

It seems the iconic stadium is being revamped after the five-time European champions struck a massive stadium sponsorship deal with Swedish-based audio streaming service Spotify.

"Renovation work on the Camp Nou, the epicentre of the Espai Barca project, will begin this June, as soon as the football season has ended, and in accordance with the building permit approved this morning," an official statement released by the club read.

"The work will focus on the first and second-tier, technological aspects, the environs of the stadium, and exterior urbanisation.

"As president Joan Laporta said a few weeks ago, given the uncertainties generated by the war in Ukraine, especially with regard to the cost and availability of materials, a precautionary principle is to be observed in order to minimise risks and protect next season's revenue, but with the least possible impact on the works schedule.

"The demolition of the third tier will therefore go ahead in the summer of 2023, which will win time given the current uncertainty of prices, and will ensure that the Camp Nou can operate at virtually full capacity next season.

"Demolition any earlier would have meant having to play the 2022/23 season with just 50% of capacity."

Spain's Olympic Stadium, which is also known as the Lluis Companys Stadium, will serve as Barcelona's temporary home during renovations.

There is a capacity of 55 926 at the arena, which was the main venue for the 1992 Olympic Games.
