Official: Barcelona to leave Nou Camp

October 9th, 2021 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Barcelona will leave the Nou Camp for a YEAR while the stadium is being redeveloped, president Joan Laporta has confirmed.

The planned works will begin in 2022 and could last for as long as FOUR years.

Plans include an increase of 11,000 seats – taking the stadium capacity to 110,000, while surrounding areas including the club store and museum will also be refurbished.

However, for work to commence the cash-strapped club is dependent on a loan.

The Catalan giants are reportedly in talks with investment bank Goldman Sachs, who could agree to the £1.27bn loan – but Barcelona’s members will also have to give the green light.

It would be a big commitment after the club announced losses of £408million this week.

Laporta told Catalan radio Rac1: “‘(The new Camp Nou) is fundamental for the viability of the club and its immediate future.

“The impact it will have for Barca is critical so that we can compete with our competitors who have already done what is needed.
