Posted by admin on 22nd April 2016

Barcelona have unveiled plans for the redevelopment of their Camp Nou stadium.

The Catalan outfit have announced that work on the €600 million project is scheduled to begin during the 2017-18 season and is expected to be completed during the 2021-22 campaign.

The uprgades should not inconvenience the club or its supporters as the phased changes are intended to ensure football can continue unhindered.

The capacity of the redeveloped stadium will rise to 105,000.

The new design by the Nikken Sekkei and Pascual-Ausió group was presented to the media at an event held at the Camp Nou.

The presentation was attended by president Josep Maria Bartomeu, who was joined by sporting and institutional representatives, former players as well as players and coaches from the current first team.

The club says that that new look will incorporate elements from the existing stadium, including the overhanging roof, which harks back to the stadium’s orginal design by architect Francesc Mitjans.
