2023/24 season

For the 2023/24 season FC Barcelona will play at Barcelona’s Olympic stadium (Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys) on Montjuïc hill.

The plan is to return to the new Camp Nou stadium for the 2024/25 season, but using 50% capacity of Camp Nou while the renovation is still under way.

FC Barcelona has an option to stay at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys for the 2023-24 season if necessary.

Playing at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys means that FC Barcelona will have reduced seating capacity of 60,000 spectators in 2023/24 season, instead of the 99,000 capacity of Camp Nou.

…………………………………

Barça have been talking about rebuilding Camp Nou stadium for some years now.

The latest project is called Espai Barça.

“Espai Barça can become a reality after the Ordinary General Assembly of Saturday 23 October voted unanimously in favour of the Board of Directors’ proposal to negotiate a financing operation up to a maximum of 1,500 million euros for the construction of the largest and most innovative sports and entertainment venue in a European city”

Previous Camp Nou stadium plans



In 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 plan was not completed.

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 from 1957.

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 seems 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.

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.

Los detalles del inicio de las obras del Camp Nou: fecha y cómo empezarán

El barcelonismo vive pendiente del acuerdo de financiación que dé luz verde definitiva al inicio de las obras del nuevo Spotify Camp Nou. Sin embargo, los trabajos están perfectamente planificados para iniciar su ejecución nada más terminar la temporada 2022-23 y con la fecha de finalización de la primera fase marcada por la propia constructora, Limak, para noviembre de 2024. Será entonces cuando pueda regresar el fútbol al coliseo azulgrana aunque no sea con el aforo completo y el Barça deje el Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys, donde empezará a jugar en agosto de 2023. Y para junio de 2026 se contempla que el templo barcelonista esté totalmente acabado. Desde la compañía turca, que ‘recibirá’ las llaves en dos meses, dan por hecho que todo seguirá según lo previsto y a principios de este mes de junio se pondrán, nunca mejor dicho, manos a la obra.

Las obras cumplieron el plan previsto durante el parón de LaLiga por el Mundial.

Según ha podido saber Mundo Deportivo, LaLiga empezará a desmantelar del estadio el 1 de junio los sistemas electrónicos que posee, como los del VAR. Será lo primero que se realice en el Spotify Camp Nou, aprovechando que el Barça cierra el Campeonato fuera de casa, en Balaídos ante el Celta de Vigo el fin de semana del 3-4 de junio tras recibir al Mallorca el fin de semana anterior. Habrá tiempo entonces de trasladar toda la tecnología del videoarbitraje al Estadi Olímpic, donde habrá hasta nueve conciertos entre el 28 de abril y el 20 de julio, fecha en la que se podrá plantar ya el césped de alta generación e híbrido como el que tiene en el Camp Nou.

Con esta previsión, y dando margen a otras necesidades, las obras empezarán a todo rendimiento previsiblemente durante la segunda semana de junio. Los trabajos iniciales se centrarán en completar la demolición de la tercera gradería del Spotify Camp Nou después de haber derribado ya una parte de dicha zona en el Gol Sud entre noviembre y diciembre pasado aprovechando el parón liguero por la disputa del Mundial pasando el aforo de 99. 354 al de 95.877 desde el Barça-Espanyol del 31 de diciembre.

La construcción de una nueva tercera gradería es la modificación del plan inicial de Nikken Sekkei con el objetivo de situar un doble anillo de palcos VIP entre la segunda y la tercera gradería. La capacidad total del futuro Spotify Camp Nou será de 105.000 localidades ya con la Barça Megastore en su interior así como el nuevo Museu, que se trasladará a la antigua Pista de Gel y será inaugurado el próximo 7 de junio. Denominado Barça Immersive Tour, estará en uso hasta que se abra el nuevo en el futuro Spotify Camp Nou en la temporada 2024-25.

Camp Nou is often referred to as the Nou Camp.

But how is it right? – Asterisk – Blogs

And where is the confusion.

As of July 1st, Barcelona have renamed the stadium to Spotify Camp Nou. According to the sponsorship agreement, this is for at least four years: the Swedish music service pays 300 million euros (75 per season), the naming of the stadium is one of the key parts of the deal.

Surprisingly, the stadium has only been called Camp Nou since 2001. And then in the Spanish and English media, a slightly different version of the name often pops up – “Nou Camp”. We are going on a short historical and philological journey together with colleagues from The Athletic in order to understand what is the correct name for the Barça stadium.

Camp Nou – New Field. Were they old?

Before Camp Nou, the Catalan club had two stadiums. The first is on Rue Carrer de la Industria and was played until 1922. It was there that the most famous nickname of Barcelona fans appeared – cules (translated from Spanish – asses). All due to the fact that a lot more people were packed into the 6,000th arena, and someone had to watch the match, sitting on the wall, and the priests hung on the street.

In 1922, the club’s founder and president, Joan Gamper, moved the team to a new stadium. “Camp de les Corts” was a little further from the historical center of the city, but it was much more spacious – up to 60 thousand spectators could come to the games of “Barcelona”.

In 1925 Barcelona fans at the Camp de les Corts booed the Spanish anthem and applauded the British one. Dictator Primo de Rivera closed the stadium for six months, and Gamper himself was expelled from the country – he was accused of supporting Catalan nationalism. Then Joan was allowed to return, but was forbidden to participate in the life of the football club – in 1930 he committed suicide.

In the 1940s, Barcelona outgrew Camp de les Corts as well – the arena could no longer be expanded, there was not enough space. Therefore, at 19In the 1950s, a new stadium was built – the Camp Nou.

“Camp Nou” – the popular name that won the official version

Initially, they wanted to name it just in honor of Joan Gamper, but Francisco Franco banned it – the Spanish dictatorship erased any mention of Catalan nationalism. Therefore, the official name was as neutral as possible – “Barcelona Football Club Stadium”. It was approved in a referendum in 1965, and it lasted until the early 2000s.

But the fans called the arena differently among themselves – “Camp Nou”, “New Field” in Catalan. And it took root, although it did not appear in official documents.

“The name comes from a comparison with the Camp de les Corts,” explains Josep Bobet, a member of the Barça history committee. – The one was perceived as “old”, and built in the 1950s – as “new”.

In 2001, President Joan Gaspar organized a fan vote on the name of the stadium: 19,861 people out of 29,000 chose the Camp Nou option – this is how the informal option became official.

So how is it correct: “Camp Nou” or “Camp Nou”?

Sometimes, however, you can find another version of the name – “Nou Camp”. Most often in English-language media, but in Spanish this slips. In principle, this option seems to be more correct from the point of view of sentence construction: Nou Camp, New Camp, New field (not New field).

“From the point of view of spelling in Catalan, it is more correct to use an adjective before a noun – just like in English. But this gives the phrase a figurative meaning.

And for the literal, it’s just fine to put an adjective after the actual name. From this point of view, the Camp Nou is the correct option, explains historian Josep Bobet.

The official website of Barcelona says that both options were in use until 2001, when the fans officially chose the name Camp Nou.

By the way, if you really want to pronounce the name the way the Catalans themselves do in Barcelona, ​​here is the instruction from the club. In the word “Camp”, locals most often omit the last letter, it turns out “Kam”. The word “Nou” is best pronounced like the English “Know”. Here are examples of pronunciation from native Catalan speakers.

***

The Camp Nou will soon be even newer: from 1 July the name has been updated, and then the big reconstruction of the stadium will also begin. The team will spend the 2023/24 season at the Olympic Stadium on Mount Montjuic – by the way, Joan Gamper is also buried there.

History

The stadium was built when Francesc Miro-Sans was president of Barcelona. He promoted the future Camp Nou project due to the small capacity of the old Camp de Les Corts stadium, and also because the main competitor, Real Madrid, built the Estadio Chamartín (now known as the Santiago Bernabéu). The design of Barcelona’s new stadium was entrusted to architect Francesc Mithans (cousin of Miro-Sans).

The foundation stone was laid in March 1953 with an initial budget of 67 million pesetas. However, during operation, due to unforeseen changes in the soil, difficulties arose, which increased the construction period and the cost of the stadium, which reached 288 million. The club hoped to cover the construction costs by selling the site of Les Corts stadium, but the Barcelona municipality delayed the transfer of the land to another category for ten years, which led to a temporary shortage of funds. Francisco Franco forgave the club’s debt.

The opening of the stadium took place on 24 September 1957. Since then, Barcelona have parted ways with their former stadium to play at Camp Nou , giving thousands of fans who lacked space at Les Corts the opportunity to attend their favorite team’s matches. By the time the Camp Nou opened, was one of the largest and most majestic stadiums in the world, with a capacity of 90,000 seats.

The slogan “More than a club” at the Camp Nou.

Initially, the stadium was supposed to be named after the club’s founder Hans Gamper, but later it was decided to take a more neutral name: Estadio del Club de Fútbol Barcelona (FC Barcelona Stadium) [5] . However, the stadium was popularly known as “Camp Nou” (which in Catalan means “ new stadium ” or “ new land “), because in relation to Les Corts it was new. Eight years after the opening of the stadium, President Enric Laudet convened a meeting to discuss the adoption of the stadium’s official name. Among the options were Estadi Barça and Estadi Camp Nou, but the majority of the votes went to Estadio del CF Barcelona. Despite this, most fans and journalists still preferred Camp Nou , and for this reason, in 2001, President Juan Gaspar called a new meeting in which the majority voted to give the stadium this name [6] .

During the 2007-2008 season, in honor of the stadium’s 50th anniversary, a special kit was made for Barcelona players.

Opening

Camp Nou was opened on September 24, 1957. In honor of this event, commemorative events were organized, one of which was a friendly meeting between Barcelona and the Polish Legia. The match ended 4-2 in favor of the Catalans, with Barcelona player Eulogio Martinez scoring the first goal in the history of the new stadium.

The first official meeting at the stadium took place on 6 October 1957. In this match, which was the second of the 1957-1958 season, Barcelona faced Real Madrid from Jaén. To the delight of the fans, the team won with a score of 6:1, and the authors of the goals scored were Vilaverde, Tejada, Kubala and Eulogio Martinez (3).

Stadium renovation

View of the stadium

Camp Nou from the inside

The Camp Nou has been rebuilt several times.

This happened for the first time at 1981: The stadium was expanded to host the 1982 FIFA World Cup matches held in Spain. The capacity of the Camp Nou has been increased to 120,000 spectators. The second restructuring was carried out in 1998 in connection with the introduction of new rules by UEFA requiring that all seats must be provided with seats. In order for the stadium to lose as few seats as possible, it was necessary to lower the level of the lawn. Now the capacity of the stadium has decreased to 98,934. The dimensions of the football field are 105×68 meters.

The Camp Nou is one of the few European stadiums rated five stars by UEFA.

The stadium houses the official center of FC Barcelona employees, the management office and the museum of the football club, which is the most visited museum in Catalonia. In addition, the Camp Nou is the main part of the complex, which also includes the Mini Estadi (Spanish: Mini estadi ) – a twenty-thousandth stadium where students from the club’s sports school, La Masia (Spanish: La Masía ) – the building where the youngest students of the club live, and Palau Blaugrana (Spanish: Palau Blaugrana ) – a building for 8,000 spectators, where the club’s basketball, handball, hockey and futsal teams train.

50th Anniversary Renovation

In September 2007, the club accepted a 50th anniversary stadium renovation project. An international competition was organized, during which architects from all over the world presented their projects in 80 offices. The jury included representatives of the club, members of the public administration and the association of Catalan architects. On September 18, 2007, the winner became known – it was the English company Fosters and Partners (English Foster and Partners ), who was known for the construction of the new Wembley Stadium, the Millau Viaduct, the Collserola Tower, the new shopping center in New York [7] . The initial budget was 250 million euros [7] . The project model was first presented to the public before the start of the match between Barcelona and Sevilla, which took place on September 22, 2007.

In 2008 it was decided to finish the project in order to start construction in 2009 and finish it in 2011 or 2012.
